I prefer pens which allow me to grip close to the nib--I feel I have more control over the line that way. Unfortunately, there is a good distance from grip to nib with this pen (~2.3mm as opposed to ~1.25mm on the Pilot B2P or ~1.5mm on a Bic Cristal) which annoys me. Also, the grip is slightly beveled with ribbing; while this doesn't bother me, it can be a turn-off to those who prefer a smooth, rubber/soft, or thick grip.
The pen enclosure is hard plastic with a girth comparable to a Bic Cristal or slightly slimmer than a Sharpie Pen. People with large hands or those who prefer beefier pens may find it too narrow. And despite its light weight, my hand still becomes fatigued after writing for an hour or so due to its diminutive size.
When it comes to comfort, this pen is middling for me. However, what this pen lacks in comfort, it makes up for in ink quality, longevity, and nib sizing. Once you break the pen in (write a couple of pages), the ink flows smoothly laying down crisp lines of color, even when using a light touch.Read more ›
Most reviews you see at places such as penaddict.com will be for the Hi-Tec-C, which confuses some people, who assume they are different pens. What is interesting is the Hi-Tec-C has developed a near cult level following, and various times I've gone out to meetings with clients and had people ask me 'Is that a Hi-Tec-C' which is frankly a pretty odd question to get for a pen with such a cheap plastic barrel and look. So why is the pen popular?
1. It makes beautiful clear and fine lines
2. Despite the very small nib, the scratchiness you find with such ultrafines goes away very quickly as you start writing.
3. The ink flows and sets nicely for a gel pen.
I love to write and take notes and sometimes mindmap with sketches and non linear jottings. This pen is beautiful for such. The .4mm size (which this one is), is a good size for those getting used to it. I sometimes prefer .3, but .25 pushes the limits and does tend to be a bit scratchy. The black is also a nice black. Another perk about this particular 3-pack is it is a very inexpensive way to give the Hi-Tec-C/G-Tec-C a try. Even when you buy a box you're often paying $2 or more a pen/refill, but this three pack costs a good bit less. So a cult level legendary pen at pretty much the best price out there.
The refill does tend to empty a bit faster than a regular ballpoint pen, and some of the other gel pens, but not in a significant manner, especially not for the quality. The main negative to the pen is the plastic barrel. It is a plain cheap barrel. It isn't particularly durable, doesn't have the best ergonomics, and isn't hugely aesthetically pleasing.Read more ›
These pens are great, and every time I lend them to someone they make a comment about the quality. These are, no doubt, wonderful writing devices, but for those that write smaller, you'll probably be wishing for a finer point.
I've purchased a box of .3mm G-Tec-C3 pens from Pilot and I enjoy them more than the .4mm tipped pens. For my size of handwriting, they are perfect. I use these pens every single day of my life. .3mm = 5 stars
Also, I'd like to comment that the blue ink is much more stable against water than the black ink is.
Anyway! First of all, let me state the facts about the Pilot G-Tec pens. They are all about precision and smooth fine writing. Tells everything about how great a pen is right? That's not just it. This pen is not only for fine writing but is basically for technical purposes. Yes, you are thinking right. People with technical careers like architecture or engineering uses this kind of pen, even artists, because of how this pen works well in technical stuff. So, it's fine if you use it for your daily use (with caution, why? You'll know later) but this pen could do so much more. And if you're buying this sort-of expensive pen, it would be more better for that reason. Do not even start with it's pen life, this thing can last, and when I say last, I mean like about 5-6 months or more (depends on the user) which if you think about it, is a very great investment.
Now we covered the great things about this pen, let me talk about the downside. It's not really a downside of it uses (because it is nor lacking at it) but it comes down HOW YOU TAKE CARE of it. This pen would demand more care than any random and basic pen lying around. This pen? When this baby falls from a table or from anything that would make it shake violently? IT WILL PROBABLY 90% WOULD NEVER WORK ANYMORE. It's that sensitive, I'm sorry. It's not really it's fault but because of it's tip, thought promising, is really easily breakable. And once that breaks? You can just either buy a refill for lower expense. There are people who'll try to revive it but it's really hard, you'll just a hard time on your hand.Read more ›

I enjoy writing with these pens because the ink flows very smoothly and I have not experienced any bleeding, even when I writer in my Hobonichi.Published 16 days ago by Lotus Blossom
I love how small they write, but I guess the point makes it feel scratchier than most rolling ball pens. Guess I'll stick with 0.3s.Published 19 days ago by D. Green
Love these pens. The point is fine and great for both writing and making coloring book pages (which I use them for). Since I discovered them, I don't like using other pens. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Amazon Customer
These were a little TOO fine-pointed, the 0.4 mm pens, however, are incredible. My favorite pens, thanks to @tferrissPublished 21 days ago by Rocinante76
