i initially LOVED this pen.
i was very excited to find a relatively inexpensive fine tip pen after years of
feeling frustrated seeing .5mm or .7mm pens erroneously labelled as "fine" in
stationary/office supply stores.
BUT! the honeymoon eventually ended..
i have used dozens of these pens in black, blue, and red..
to be fair to jetpens, none of them were purchased through their site.
my first big complaint is the colour of the ink.
i hate hate hate the colour black used.. i'm not sure how to describe what i
hate about it.. but it just reminds me of something you'd expect from a cheap
ballpoint pen that you'd hate writing with. so when the pen is functioning well,
i hate the look of what i'm writing.
(i also hate the red used.)
i have almost never used a pen until the ink has run out.
some of the pens work ok for a while, and then just stop writing, with a
majority of the ink remaining.
a select few pens never worked from the start.
i can understand pens that are dropped on their tip no longer working. it's
annoying. but i can understand it.
