Product Review

  I purchased the Uni-Ball..., January 25, 2013
I purchased the Uni-Ball Power Tank Smart Series High Grade hoping that it would function well with Field Notes' new Expedition series notebooks. The synthetic paper doesn't treat most inks well and I hoped that the Power Tank would hold up well.

I pleasantly surprised when it arrived. The Power Tank functions exceptionally well with the Expedition notebook's synthetic paper. It even outperforms Fisher's Space Pen cartridges; worth noting are line quality (the Power Tank lays a very smooth line whereas the Fisher refills tend to skip) and dry-time / smudging / smearing (the Power Tank's line dries far quicker, drying to reasonable levels in nearly a quarter the time of Fisher's offering in my not-so-scientific study).

With traditional paper the Power Tank performs admirably, as well. I have no complaints with its writing performance.

The barrel's knurling (for lack of a better term) is very nice. It provides an excellent grip while not being too aggressive. Also, it's rather nice looking; certainly a plus.

Overall, an excellent pen. My only wish? A version with a red barrel. Although, black, brown, and blue seem nice, too.
