I'd ordered a couple of dozen of these pens a few years ago (black and blue), and most of them have since gone missing so I just placed my Amazon order for another couple of dozen.
I thought it was a bit odd when they arrived and had gold printing on the barrel and the black pens had a grey insert at the top of the cap. (My old ones were all printed with silver as pictured on Amazon, and the black pen caps were all black). I figured that they'd just changed packaging.
However, I still have a couple of the old pens left and the ink on these new ones seems just a little lighter and thinner. If I hadn't been using them for so long then I probably wouldn't have noticed. A change in packaging is just fine with me, but a change in ink formula for the worse is unfortunate. I suppose it could be that the ink in the older pens had just thickened up with time, and I'm being overly picky.
Even so, I would still wholeheartedly recommend these pens. They also only need a very light touch to get good transfer to paper, so they're great for lengthy writing sessions. Even though they're apparently less ergonomic than the VBall Grip version, I find them to be more comfortable to use.
If anyone knows that they in fact did make more of a change than the packaging, please leave a comment. (I'm quite curious.) I can't find any difference discussed online, and the product pictures on Pilot's and Amazon's sites still show the old silver design.Read more ›
Searching for an alternative, I found these Pilot V-balls and fell in love. I've gone through dozens of them and I've never run across a defective one. The nib and ink flow extremely well and allow for quick, continuous writing on most types of paper. The ink is dark and quick-drying. They also have a long life and the transparent inkwell design allows you to see how much ink is left in the pen.
However, the deal above is ridiculously bad. You can find these pens by the dozen at about $1.75 a piece. Shoot, my local mom-and-pop stationery store sells them for $1.90 singly! And they can't afford to give big price breaks. So look for a better deal on Amazon or support your local mom-and-pop if you still have one. I'm off to mine right now to pick up a box of these great pens.
So while my students hate seeing their papers come back obliterated with red ink, I enjoy using a pen that does its job well each and every time.

I have tried multiple pens in this category. The VBall Stick pens are decent but I must say they lag behind the um151(much smoother).Published 1 month ago by Jonathon
While I am usually a big fan of Pilot Pens and use them all the time these are a real flop. The do not write smoothly like other Pilot brands and leave a lot of gloppy ink. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Brooke
FLAWLESS ink 100% of the time. I don't know how or why these pens are different and always work, but they do. I have been purchasing and using them since 1998. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Wendi
My favorite pen for the last 10 years. I buy them in bulk. I prefer the Fine vs. the X-fine because I find it to be smoother when drawing and like the thicker inkPublished 14 months ago by B. P.
These are the only pens I use. I love them because the ink is bold.Published 16 months ago by M. Schwab
