Jetstream ink is the...

Jetstream ink is the best on the market for ballpoints. Wow. How the get it to
be so smooth and quick drying is almost magic! LOL, magic.
Anyway, I was a bit skeptical about this pen because of the 0.5mm size; I
figured that it would be too small and not work well.
I was partly right. If you are writing on a pad, notebook, journal...something
that has a few pages to it, it writes very well. Incredibly smooth, unbelievably
precise and beautiful in output (unless your hand writing is as bad as mine).
But if you are writing on a single page or something that is a bit rough, it
doesn't work that great. I was trying to write on some post-its will holding
them in my hand...ink was sporadic. Single piece of paper? Well, not so much.
Pen is a bit to sharp for that and it doesn't give a great surface for the pen
to roll on.
But for most things, it is awesome.
I do find it a bit to fine for my overall tastes, but that's just me. I will use
it, but not for writing my life story or translating War & Peace.
The fit and balance of the pen is very very good. A little on the light side,
but it's a plastic pen that you are paying $2 for. The rubber grip handles well
and isn't too sticky. Overall this is a great pen.
Just remember: Uniball ink = magic
