The \"G\" designation...
, August 7, 2011
The \"G\" designation is somewhat misleading; this pen really doesn\'t write
like a G Pen. The nib is very stiff with just a bit of flex, and is fairly
scratchy. It also seems to pick up bits of paper quite a bit, regardless of
whether it\'s bristol or sketch paper. That all said it works fairly well save
one thing, which I will return to. The pen is great for fine line work as it has
a very fine tip, and can produce excellent hatching, and produce fairly good
linework, if fine even at the widest it will produce. If it wrote smoother it
would be far better, but for the $, it\'s not bad.
The ink it comes with, however, sucks. I had ink flow issues starting right from
the beginning, and continued to write with it for some time, until I became fed
up and switching over to FW India Ink made for technical pens, and it has had
for fewer flow issues since. I can only guess the ink that comes with it is too
viscous to flow well, and would strongly recommend anyone buying this pen to
find some other ink to use.
