This is the ultimate pen. Elegant, simple, modern. It has a really solid feel to
Note: you must keep the pen *between* two settings to maintain a retracted tip.
The pen goes well in a shirt pocket or a pencil case; however, there is some
risk to a tip becoming exposed and writing into your pants if you choose to
carry it in pocket.
Although I eagerly give this pen five stars, it could still be better. I use
mine with the Zebra .4mm gel tips in black and in red and with a .3mm mechanical
pencil component. However, I wish the Hi-Tec-C Slim refills would work, and I
would use their .3mm gel pen components. The Zebra tips are very smooth, but
I've gotten used to the scratchy control of a Hi-Tec-C .3mm tip. I wish they
were compatible, but they are not (the Hi-Tec-C Slim gel pen components are a
tiny bit too small). Also, I miss the fine line that the .3mm produces when
compared to the .4mm Zebra tip.
Nevertheless, if I get used to the .4mm tip or if Zebra produces their own .3mm
tip (which I doubt), then this would become the only pen I carry around.
