Whether you are a writer or a sketch artist, this is a pen to add to your must-have list! I first encountered this pen when I was in high school. I was at my dad's office and picked it up to mark up my college application, and something odd happened. I couldn't put it down. He begrudgingly gave it to me to take home. And I went mad in my sketch book, thought up new story ideas just to have an excuse to write, recopied old lists...anything and everything for an excuse to use this pen. My dad and I took to giving each other boxes of these pens for christmas and birthday gifts, but then another odd thing happened...the pens were apparently discontinued. We both searched desperately at Staples and other office supply chains, but nothing. Every once in awhile, one or the other of us would run across a box and offer a few to each other. I considered writing a letter to Pilot, but I had no pens left and no inspiration left to write. Then Amazon came along and I rediscovered my old favorite pen! I bought two boxes, one for me and one for my dad (if he's lucky) and you should too. These pens are simply an incredible writing tool.

Yes, I did say bestest. Because there is no other word to describe just how sublime this wonderful rollerball pen truly is.

I was down to my last Pilot VBall, wondering what I was going to do when the ink ran out. Because this was originally just the PilotVBall. And then Pilot discontinued it. I was left to scour overpriced stationery stores that charged over $3 a pop for these beloved pens.

I tried the various other incarnations Pilot made and didn't like them. They scritched. They scratched. The flow was nowhere near as fluid. I don't like retractable pens. And I tried to like them. I don't like pens that feel like they have growths on them (grip pens).

And then came then. I found my beloved pen in a new incarnation. A recycled, green incarnation. Except for the clip on the cap, all is the same. The fluiditiy, the shape, the feel. Did I mention the fluidity? The absence of that annoying scritch scratch sound other, inferior rollerballs made . . .

These were my favorite liquid ink pens from my high school and university days. They are very difficult to find! They work extremely well but you need to remember to carry them with the tip side up because otherwise if you live in a cold climate as I do in Canada the temperature shifts will cause the ink to leak out when the air in them expands. This flaw probably also explains why the ink flows so well when writing. The originals had metal clips instead of the plastic on these so sadly these are not quite the original but they are close enough to the originals that I like them. Unfortunately due to the way they were packed, a few of the pens have ink bleed into the barrier ink buffers. Overall thou a great product. :)

I love these pens. I discovered them in the mid-90s. The barrel feels good in my hand--slightly thicker than the average stick pen. The liquid ink flows effortlessly and smoothly (although it's not a good idea for most lefties, since it will smear for a few seconds.)

They changed the barrel of these pens for a few years and I went around hoarding the "old" style. I literally was down to my last pen when I discovered these are back. The cap is slightly different (more plastic) than the previous version, but the barrel, micro point and ink flow are the same.

Thank goodness! I tried writing with the ball points we have at work and it was so much more effort. I didn't know what I was going to do when that last pen died. Thank goodness I don't have to find out. :)

I bought a box of 12 of these pens. So far five out of five of them have leaked. That should be all I need to say, but Amazon is telling me I need to write more words. Five out of five of these pens leaked. Enough?

I've been buying these pens for almost 10 years now and every time I think I should give another pen a try, I end up disappointed and thankful that Pilot still makes this pen. The pen tip is perfect and it's the only one I've found that is consistent from the 1st day to the last day of use. Other pens start and/or end their service time by skipping (where the roller ball doesn't send the ink to the paper smoothly). Although I've tried the black ink version, blue is my one and only, favorite to buy. There's just one word of warning, don't travel with it on an airplane, if you do you'll waste a perfectly good pen. It will most likely rupture from the air pressure, and you'll find that it will leak and be difficult to use without getting ink on your hands and paperwork. Other than that, I LOVE this pen and refuse to use another unless I have no choice!

about these pens. It seems like this new batch is slightly different than the originals that I've been using all these years (20+ .. had to hoard them during lean times) .. maybe a little scratchier. Still, I was delighted to find them available again! Especially good on very smooth paper.

This is NOT the same pen as http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001C8FWNY/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I couldn't see a difference between this and the former, which I've been buying for years, other than it didn't have a green color on the shaft, so I purchased this as it was slightly cheaper. MISTAKE. This is an inferior quality pen. The ink doesn't come out smoothly, it's constructed differently, and I don't like it.

The name and description of the pen are identical.
