I bought a box of these with the 0.7mm points first, but they weren't quite as smooth as I wanted, so I followed-up with a box of the 1.0mm points. (Both blue ink, BTW, so no difference is attributable to a difference in ink formulations.) The 1.0mm pens lay down a nice smooth line, and the extra width of the point seems to allow the pen - and the user - to take full advantage of the smooth and free-flowing qualities of a gel pen.
I'm left handed but don't drag my hand across the ink as I write, but I did test for smearing, and on regular paper I get no smearing. The only way I can get smearing is if I pull a finger immediately behind the pen, in which case I get a small smudge on my finger but no smear on the paper.
I haven't had these long enough to say how long a pen will last, but as they do have a relatively wide point it's probably a fair guess that they won't last overly long. As others have noted, they arrive with a tiny bead of plastic on the tip, so there are no issues with drying prior to receipt.
If it's not obvious, I really like these pens!
If unaware, the tip of each pen has a tiny plastic cover so remove it before attempting to write. I have been using them for over a month and will definitely replace with more when the time comes. The product does not disappoint.
My main critique is that the 1.0 mm tip is extremely bold. I am used to a Uniball Jetstream 1.0 mm, which is what I was hoping this pen would be like in terms of line weight. The line this pen puts down is much bolder than the Jetstream or other 1.0 pens I've used. I think that is attributable to the less viscous ink.
I actually ordered the 0.7 mm pens after getting the 1.0 pens because I found the 1.0 to be too bold for normal note taking and cursive writing. It's great for signatures though or anytime you aren't trying to write on college ruled paper.
There are three big things I look for in colored pens:
1) that all the colors are readable, including the green and orange and pinks, which are always hard to read it seems
2) that the pens don't feel or look cheaply made
3) the pens write nice & smoothly and don't skip or come out blotty
These pens rocked every category. If you are a college student and write in color-coded notes like me, these are the pens for you. I used to use the G2 Force ones by pilot but I felt that the green pens constantly never worked and I sometimes got duds within their 4, 9, and 11 packs. I really can't believe I switched pen types, I used G2 for 7 years. These pens write clearly and I have never gotten a dud or have one that wrote spotty. They look professional and don't feel light or cheaply made.
