I was extremely surprised...

I was extremely surprised at how wonderful this pen writes. When I ordered this
pen, despite all the good reviews, I was a little wary due to the
not-so-elaborate look of the pen. To my surprise, the pen worked wonderfully!
Just as others have said, this pen is extremely smooth, even when writing on
just a thin piece of paper on a wood desk. The ink flows nicely and the pen does
not skip. Although the grip isn't really a grip at all, it's quite comfortable
to hold. I was also a little fearful of the 0.7mm size because I prefer thin,
0.5mm pens most of the time, but the lines were very close to that of the 0.5
Jetstream I ordered. The ink color is quite appealing as well. Most other blue
pens do tend to have the light, faded blue color, but this one has a very dark
and bold blue, not quite the dark blue of a gel ink or liquid pen [I don't like
the latter very much]. For anyone looking for a simple, light, smooth blue pen,
this is a great pen to get.
