Since one's satisfaction can vary greatly based on a pen's intended purpose--jotting notes and memos, sketching, inking art projects, lettering invitations, addressing letters, etc.--I'll focus on four angles: comfort, ink quality & longevity, and nib sizing.

COMFORT
For general writing (memos, letters, notes, &c.), which is ideally what this pen is designed for, I prefer pens with grips close to the nib because it gives me a greater level of control, but there's a good distance from grip to nib with this pen (~1.5cm as opposed to ~1.25cm on a Pilot B2P). However, this isn't uncommon and will probably feel natural if you're accustomed to using stick pens.

The grip itself has a smooth rubber texture all around save for two plastic-like strips on either side, ostensibly for greater ergonomic comfort. Frankly, though, I didn't notice a difference when holding the pen in various positions, which makes me believe it's more for show than anything. Although the grip is rubber, it's not squishy.

The pen's girth is roughly the size of your standard fine point Sharpie marker's grip or slightly larger than a Bic Crystal. While it's not as beefy as some other pens available, it's a notch above a stick pen.

It's lightweight and surprisingly well-balanced which helps minimize hand fatigue that occurs with prolongued use. So although I'm not impressed with the distance from grip to nib, it is a fairly comfortable pen.

Size: 8-PackColor: Assorted Colors
I bought a pack of these and split it with two other people. I got the orange, purple, and green pens.

The purple and green ink colors are very good. The orange color is disappointingly weak. This isn't an unusual problem for orange, but Paper Mate has come up with decent orange ballpoint ink before, so I know they can do it. In fact, the orange in the InkJoy 100 stick is pretty nice.

The real issue with these pens is consistency. I've got a weak orange pen that blobs too often, a good purple pen that blobs only a little [UPDATE: PURPLE now blobs a lot, and it leaks if I store it with the point down], and a green pen that is going to run out of ink soon because it blobs like crazy when I use it, and oozes when I'm not using it, like I have never seen any ballpoint pen do before. Doesn't matter whether I store it point-down or flat. (I'm afraid to store it point-up!) I don't know why I don't throw it away. I must really like the color, to be willing to walk around with so much green ink on my hands.

I don't know if the blobbing is particularly bad with the green pens in particular, or if it's just that some InkJoy 550 RTs are worse than others regardless of the color, but it's not acceptable to see this much variation within a single package of pens.

I've bought more reliable pens, including Paper Mate pens, for less money. I have a pack of InkJoy 100s that are very well behaved. They aren't as nice as the more expensive Staedtler 432s they resemble, but the InkJoy 100 colors are all vivid, they blob only a little bit, their performance is very consistent from one color to the next, and none of them leak.

It is reasonable to expect more consistent quality and reliability at ANY price point from a brand like Paper Mate.
