Awesome. Just got this...

Awesome. Just got this from JetPens a couple of days ago and have been using it
at work since then. I'm a mechanical engineer and I use this for my notes,
marking/labeling, and some sketching (industrial design style sketching - not
drafting). Pen is light weight (this could be good or bad, depending on your
preference); pretty well balanced posted or not; and it has an average diameter
and nicely tapered rubber grip. I usually print but it is okay for cursive also.
Black ink is definitely black, not washed out dark grey. Line weight is about
equal to a 0.50mm Uniball Signo or a Pilot Precise V5.
Three days in and this pen is definitely looking like a 'go to' for my day to
day work. So far it does it all for me: resistant to water, highlighters, Copic
and Prismacolor markers. Wrote on the corner of my safety glasses lens and
wouldn't wipe off with my finger after it was dry (~10 min?). Apparently it will
write on anything - once you get it started.
Not the best for sketching (gets a bit globby on long fast strokes) - for that I
mostly use either a Uniball Jetstream or a Uniball Signo 0.28mm.
