Pilot Precise V5 Stick Rolling Ball Pen, Micro Point, 0.5 mm, Black Barrel/Ink (35334), 12-Count
Pentel EnerGel Liquid Gel Pen, Fine Needle Tip, Blue Barrel, Black Ink, Box of 12 (BLN15-A)
Pilot G2 Retractable Gel Ink Roller Ball Pen, Extra Fine Point, Clear Barrel, Black Ink, 12-Count (31002)
uni-ball 207 Retractable Micro Point Gel Pens, 12 Black Ink Pens(61255)
Sharpie Pen Fine Point Pen, 12 Black Pens (1742663)
The overall favorites were definitely the V5 and the EnerGel. The EnerGel was generally preferred by those who liked a higher ink flowrate, while the V5 was preferred by those who liked a lower flowrate. First impressions of the Uniball 207 were quite good, but occasionally these pens drew the ire of my reviewers when they stopped writing seemingly randomly with large volumes of ink still remaining. The Sharpie pen, while better than expected, feels like a marker (because it is) and doesn't have wide appeal. The Pilot G2 was scratchy and terrible all-around; this appears to be a problem with the 0.5mm tip size, as I have heard great things about the G2 0.7mm.
I found the EnerGel to deliver the ink too fast, and I had some problems with bleed-through on my Moleskine Ruled Notebook Pocket. Because of this, the EnerGel ran dry quite a bit faster than the other pens tested. I do tend to write rather slowly, so it really comes down to personal preference - the other reviewers were split 50/50 over whether the flowrate was too high or just right.
The pen had zero durability issues like those cited for the 207's and the G2's. While I find the line that these pens produce to be too thick when compared to the lines yielded by other 0.5mm pens, those who like to write bigger and bolder will probably appreciate them. Even though this is not my favorite pen, all reviewers could at least agree that these pens are quality.
1. THE NEEDLE TIP: feels more precise than other types of tips. It stays clearly out of the way of what you are writing. Unfortunately, the last pen of this kind that I owned was indeed smoother than all the new ones I received. Pentel must have changed something about the tip mechanism. I rate smoothness on 2 aspects; the tip's performance, and the ink smoothness. No doubt EnerGel is slippery stuff, but all the newer Energel pens seem to have this rockier writing feel at the tip-not rusty, but rockier than they used to be. It's as if you are writing on a sheet of paper that has a piece of sandpaper a few sheets underneath it. It's subtle... but it's there. The Pilot G2s are the same way. But the earlier ones didn't do this! It's still a very smooth writing pen, especially if you press lightly. The tip is strong as it's a solid one-piece nib instead of separate pieces as with Pilot's.
2. THE INK: The EnerGel ink is superior to just about any ink in all regards--smear free, fairly waterproof, deepest black ink of all gel inks with marginal exception of Pilot G2 black ink. It's clearly smoother than the Pilot Precise which is slightly scratchy. The EnerGel ink is the smoothest of all inks I've ever tried. It has only a slight tendency to bleed at all, but you have to press and hold for it to really happen. That it has a cap (that has a rubbery tip cover inside) could mean it's less likely to dry out than a retractable pen which has nothing.
3. THE GRIP: The grip is quite good--it's the perfect diameter which makes my penmanship the smoothest and neatest looking, as well as most free-movement. The former version of the BLN 15A (this pen) had no ribbing on the rubber grip which I really liked. No matter how subtle the ribbing, it feels like snow tire treads, and its only decorative and feels annoying. The best grip texture should probably emulate the texture of fingerprints, and nothing more, or simply none. [The best grip in the business goes to the Pilot Precise Grip--perfectly tacky texture with recessed dimple dots.] But this Pentel pen is probably second best. I could only want it to be tackier like Pilot's. The only slight annoyance in writing is the noticing of the cap's edge rubbing my skin a bit. I leave it off.
A great .5, fine tip pen.
