I use these pens exclusively at work (all colors). I'm a CPA and make notes on documents frequently. The ink doesn't smear or leak through to the other side of the paper.

I prefer a fine point, and this is my favorite pen. Great for leftys - the ink doesn't smear. It has a good feel in the hand - neither too thin nor too thick.

If you do not already own any Uni-Ball Jetstream pens, you are doing yourself a disservice by not buying these this instant (or the colorless pack). As a left-handed person, I have a lot of difficulty finding pens that will write left-handed, and also not smear. There is something about the pushing action that causes many, many pens to not write left-handed. The other great thing about these pens is how quickly the ink dries. Lots of pens take a while for the ink to dry; this is fine for right-handed people, since the ink can dry while the writer leaves those letters alone and continues to write. However, I always struggle with smearing ink. One problem is that the ink gets smeared all over the page, which tends to look extremely unprofessional. The rest of the ink ends up on your hand, which just looks gross. The fast-drying ink of the Jetstream solves this problem, drying in usually less than one second. Lastly, I got everybody in my family a set of these for Christmas, and my brother compared the smoothness of writing to a fountain pen.

One caveat that I will add: I have noticed an odd phenomenon that a new pen will stop writing consistently after about two pages of writing. What I generally do in this case is switch to a different Jetstream I have. After the new pen sits in timeout for the rest of the night, I have nary an issue afterwards. Just another reason to buy multiple packs.

I honestly cannot recommend these highly enough, especially for lefties, but righties will also reap the benefit of smooth writing action and nearly nonexistent ink bleed.

Best cheap pen I've ever used, and possibly best among the expensive ones. It does bleed occasionally, and the red one has skipped on me a couple of times, but they still perform and write incredibly.

The ink is crazy smooth. Every now and then, it will get some skips, but not often.

I prefer fine point for note-taking in college, and I really appreciate how the Jetstream doesn't even try to bleed through the page. I can write on front and back, and not have to squint when I go over notes later, unlike the Pilot G2 pens which tend to show through notebook paper. Not this pen, or not much. Now I can write on the back of my paper with impunity, rather than squinting or wasting paper.

Fun note: When I first got these pens, I took the black and red pens for my school work and reluctantly gave my husband the blue pen, since it's his favorite color and he's a pen freak, like me. One morning I wanted to jot down some info while on the phone at home, and absently reached for the nearest pen, the Jetstream on his desk. Before I could touch it, he yelled, "Not my Jetstream!" He's never done that about any of his other pens. Or, heck, anything.

Now we play a game of my trying to steal his Jetstream, while he gets crabby about it.

I dread these pens ever going off the market. The hubby might cry if they did.

The ink and stylus are fine but I personally don't care for the grip because it seems slippery. But this could just be a function of the way i hold a pen.

These pens write smooth as silk and don't seem to produce ink blobs that can build up with certain pens--for example, after drawing a line.

The ink did dry a bit faster, but for the price, I would not repurchase. It's an "ok" type pen.

I use JetStreams for writing in my pocket-sized 18-month Moleskine datebook. The paper is not the thickest, but these write beautifully in it without bleeding through or indenting the paper too much. And with them having a fine-point, my small handwriting is easy to read. I have also used them in both Moleskine and PaperBlanks journals, and they are perfect for that. They don't "glop" and skip as bad as regular ballpoints, and the ink dries quickly enough for me to turn a page and continue writing without the previous page's ink smudging or transferring to its neighbor. I have even used them in my checkbook register in a pinch, and they don't bleed through that cheap paper either. The colors are deep and sharp as well.

Probably the best pen you can buy for any money. It writes super smooth, dries almost instantly, requires little presure to write with and it doesn't smudge, streak or blob up. I've been using these in Afghanistan and I've only had one issue - the metal clip is kinda thin and I've bent a few of them. Granted, it's usually because I'm getting them caught on something while in my uniform pocket (ruck sack, body armor) so most people probably won't have a problem.

I've already gotten 2 other people hooked on the pens and I ordered 3 more packs, so I'll probably have some more converts pretty soon. Bottom line - I really can't recommend these enough, if you have never used one - buy one now, you will not regret it.
