In search of the ultimate...

In search of the ultimate multi-pen, I purchased the Uniball Jetstream, Dr.
Grip, Uniball Gel, and the Zebra Spiral. Of them all, the JetStream takes the #1
prize out of them all. The ink flow and smoothness of writing is what makes it
stand out from the rest. It should also be noted that the spring action feel and
sound is better than the others (minus the Zebra spiral because its twist method
is completely different). The body is slightly, almost noticeably, slimmer than
the Dr Grip and Gel. The Zebra would have been a "go-to" pen for me but it only
has red and black ink with a pencil so that immediately drops down its
capabilities in times of fast note taking where color coding is being
implemented. The grip is solid on all of them except the Gel. Preferring the
soft grip, I would LOVE to see a Jetpen with the Gel grip. The Uniball Gel only
has red and black ink also... and no eraser. Each pen has a time and place but
the JetPen can do it all and does it the best. Highly recommended if you are
looking for a nicely engineered writing utensil.
