The girth is similar to that of your standard BIC stick pen, but is smooth (i.e. no ridges, notches, latex, etc.) and there is a good distance from the grip to the nib. I personally didn't enjoy writing with this pen for extended periods because it was difficult to find a comfortable writing position, however, jotting quick notes and such was fine.
This pen lays down a buttery smooth deep black line. That said, it's unforgiving on generic/cheap office or notebook paper, and won't hesitate to cop an attitude when it comes to finer writing papers (such as Rhodia vellum, which is designed for use with fountain pens). By that I mean this ink feathers and bleeds.
On the cheap papers it bleeds like a hemophiliac, whereas on the premium papers it bleeds only as if it just scraped its knee (trickles and dots here and there). Plus, on the premium quality papers, it will require a few seconds to dry. That means lefties need to be careful.
And finally, while I would use this to sign checks or important documents, I wouldn't do so with the utmost confidence considering that it feathers with both water and alcohol (see comment for link to a writing sample image).
This is a checkmark in its favour because this pen will last a while. For a liquid ink pen, I assumed it would be dead in under 20 pages, but was pleasantly surprised you can get 30-40 pages from a single barrel. (Writing top to bottom on college ruled paper.)
Also, I watched closely for any leaks, and was glad to note there were none.
This pen, although it's a 0.5mm rolling ball, creates a huge line. In fact, the line it creates is larger than the 0.7mm Pilot B2P pen. Granted, I'm sure some of the added line width is due to its feathering on the paper, but I'd hardly label this pen "precise". For that, I'd award the honour to either the Hi-Tec-C line, Pentel Slicci, or the Uni-ball Signo lines of pens. (See comment for link to an image for line size comparison with various pens.)
Finally, while this is a needle point nib, it's actually a strong one. Unless you're planning to drill this pen into the paper while writing, it can hold up to some heavy pressure without breaking or warping.
Overall, this is a good pen. Not necessarily a *great* one in my book, but for creating memos, taking quick notes, and general purpose writing, this will most certainly do.
However... in every pack, there's always one or two that does not work. I had to buy these because the purple in my multipack keeps acting like it's running out of ink even though you can clearly see that it's not. It writes inconsistently and generally looks... awful. It's not readable. It's sad because these are such good pens when they work.
Quality control, Pilot... it's a thing.
I never have to worry if a student writes in colored pen as I always have a different color to mark with. The tips are very fine and they don't bleed unless you use it on a glossy card stock paper (just let it dry before closing if you do).
I'd recommend these to folks who love gel pens. It would be great if there was a retractable version, but I think the physics of the pen makes that unfeasible.
My only (minor) complaint is that they are a little pricey; but that is subjective. They are worth it for someone who needs to write a lot and write quickly.
The colors are bright and don't bleed. (If you knock a cup of coffee on your papers accidentally, they will run like the devil though. (Of course I have never done that on a student essay. Ahem.) One pen will usually last me about a stack or two of essays...If I did the math for my 101 class, that would be about 250 pages or so. And, unfortunately for my poor hands and wrists, I usually end up making A LOT of comments! :)
