So after reading many blog posts stating that Jetstream pens were so good, I finally ordered one. I didn't have high expectations, since my taste in pens seems to be uncommon: I do not press hard and write pretty small, so I like fine point pens with minimal ink flow, yet they absolutely must not skip. I used to use roller ball pens before going to Japan in the late 1990s and discovering Hi-Tec-C 0.4 pens, which quickly became my favorite. I tried my share of expensive pens of all kinds, but found that they intimidate me and make me uncomfortable. Besides, fountain pens (though they might be fun to play with) are too high-maintenance for me.

Well, after writing a few words with my new Jetstream Sport 0.7, it was clear that this is a serious contender for the title of best pen ever. For the first time since the 1990s, the Hi-Tec-C meets a worthy challenger. Smooth, dark lines, absolutely no skipping, and quick drying. One advantage it has over the Hi-Tec-C is that its point is not as fragile. I'm not afraid of dropping it or lending it to a friend.

I don't really understand the "0.7" rating of this pen, it writes a finer line than many 0.5 pens, and seems to be on par with a Hi-Tec-C 0.4.
