I bought a box of these pens on Amazon about a month ago along with a couple other types of Pilot blue-ink pens.

My initial impression after using a couple of each is that the new V-ball is excellent to start. The writing quality is smooth and skip-free. This is important to me. Ink flow is crisp and appropriate. I'm a physician and my use is primarily in charting on patients. The ink allows you to write quickly and there has been no smudging thus far.

However, on both of the V-ball's I've used, after about a week, the ink overflows into the cap. Not enough to get on clothing, but enough to get ink all over your hands during use. The pen still writes fine once you wipe off the excess ink from the pen tip, but it's enough to make me want to pick up another pen instead. This may be because I tend to take my pens home with me (in my coat pocket) and it's hot outside and in the car. I'm not sure. But it is an annoyance.

**update March 8, 2012**
After using several more of these pens, each one has had the same outcome: they write GREAT to start, then start bleeding. I suspect that this is because I carry the pens in my pocket and write throughout the day. I'm not sure if the body heat does it or if I'm sometimes putting the pens in my pocket tip-down, or what, but half-way through the box they've all done the same thing. It has gotten a little less problematic at the end of the pen's life. But you will have to clean out the end of the cap to see this. Alcohol swabs work well for this purpose. I will go through a pen in roughly 2-3 weeks usually and I have yet to make it all the way through one of these without having to throw it away due to concern over my clothing. And blue fingers become normal during use.

This is the only pen I will use. I have been using this pen for nearly ten years. I find the design to be much better than other fine point pens, as it is simple and effective. The ink flow is exceptionally smooth; it does not blob or skip in mid-stroke. Unlike most pens in its class, it does not have the unwieldy rubber grip, which for me does nothing except make the pen barrel too large and uncomfortable. Additionally, it is made from a single piece of plastic that is clear, allowing the user to see his or her ink level. Unfortunately, the folks at Pilot seem to disagree with me, as they appear to no longer make this pen as it was. They have moved on to a larger barreled, silver painted version with the aforementioned rubber grip. The paint chips off easily and gets all over everything.

Contrary to some reports, I've never had this pen leak during my decade of using it, even during a number of plane trips. Perhaps I was just lucky.

Overall, I would recommend this pen for its simplicity, utility, durability, and excellent writing characteristics.

I've been a professional writer for 26 years, and for my money, this is the best pen I've ever used. Skip free and so extremely fluid, it's more like writing with a brush than a pen. And from a design perspective, the V Ball is simple, attractive, functional and very comfortable - a solid performer.

Show me any Waterman or Mont Blanc that even comes close, and I'll buy it. But in the interim, at less than two bucks a pop, the Pilot V Ball sets the gold standard for everything a great pen should be.

UPDATE: A tragic single flaw. Apparently these pens must be pressurized (probably explains why they flow so smoothly). As a result, DO NOT TAKE THESE ON AN AIRPLANE. Again, just speculating, but it seems that they most blow a seal . . . resulting in a leaky mess that's tough to impossible to clean. White shirts and frilly blouses - be afraid. Be very afraid. ;-)

Despite that - I stand by every letter in my first two paragraphs. Absolutely fabulous pens.

As a writer, you rarely think you're going to rave about a particular product and then write a review about the dumb thing. But that's just what I am doing for the Pilot V-Ball, Extra Fine, UPC # 35200, Black pen. I have used one for over ten years and usually I can't find them in the stores and thus have to order them. It's OK and here's why. I am a consultant and keep a number of "billable hours" logs: Telephone incoming and outgoing time, client activities, and just "jot-`em-down" entries. What got on my nerves with other pens, was the resulting "glob" of ink if you held your pen too long in one spot; the uneven distribution of ink; the long drying time so that you wind up with an ink stain on your hand. I also write with my hand on the page and a glide stroke across it. Old habits die hard. You can hold this pen in one place as you ponder, it's OK. The ink is as even on the beginning of the sentence as it is on the punctuation at the end. And the drying time is so fast a second after you write, the ink is dry. The most important aspect of this remarkable pen is the ability to lay the ink down in such a thin, tiny line that I get more compulsive-obsessive notes in the nooks and crannies of my logbooks. So there. An ode to a pen. If you like just a wonderful pen - this is it. Oh yes, for all you folks who still write longhand for the feel of it, and then the computer - this is still it.
