  I'm no expert on gel..., March 11, 2013
I'm no expert on gel ink pens as I've switched almost exclusively to fountain pens (but I use gel on the cheap copy paper you get in school on handouts since it doesn't bleed), but I'd have to say this refill writes AMAZINGLY. It's extremely smooth with no uneven lines and skipping from beginning to end. I use this with a Pentel Energel Alloy RT body (which JetPens should totally sell; I bought mine from a different site and had to wait 20 days for it!), which is heavy enough that I practically don't even have to apply pressure to write with.

The 0.7 is the perfect width as the tip allows enough ink to flow on without being scratchy in my opinion, and it's sometimes easier to write with than my FPs. The extreme smoothness IS very slippery, and I find that my cursive begins to go out of control and look messier than before because the pen's ink would make me slide past the point I intended to write with. Hahaha

But this refill is a tried and true gel ink. I swear it's a great writing experience and it's pretty inexpensive while lasting a long time! It only expired after I wrote pages upon pages of notes for a a week, and by then another shipment with another of these (and JetPen's amazing shipping speed) had already arrived. It isn't Sakura Gelly Roll, but it's smoother than ice cream without being as thick!
