My initial impression after using a couple of each is that the new V-ball is excellent to start. The writing quality is smooth and skip-free. This is important to me. Ink flow is crisp and appropriate. I'm a physician and my use is primarily in charting on patients. The ink allows you to write quickly and there has been no smudging thus far.
However, on both of the V-ball's I've used, after about a week, the ink overflows into the cap. Not enough to get on clothing, but enough to get ink all over your hands during use. The pen still writes fine once you wipe off the excess ink from the pen tip, but it's enough to make me want to pick up another pen instead. This may be because I tend to take my pens home with me (in my coat pocket) and it's hot outside and in the car. I'm not sure. But it is an annoyance.
**update March 8, 2012**
After using several more of these pens, each one has had the same outcome: they write GREAT to start, then start bleeding. I suspect that this is because I carry the pens in my pocket and write throughout the day. I'm not sure if the body heat does it or if I'm sometimes putting the pens in my pocket tip-down, or what, but half-way through the box they've all done the same thing. It has gotten a little less problematic at the end of the pen's life. But you will have to clean out the end of the cap to see this. Alcohol swabs work well for this purpose. I will go through a pen in roughly 2-3 weeks usually and I have yet to make it all the way through one of these without having to throw it away due to concern over my clothing. And blue fingers become normal during use.
Show me any Waterman or Mont Blanc that even comes close, and I'll buy it. But in the interim, at less than two bucks a pop, the Pilot V Ball sets the gold standard for everything a great pen should be.
UPDATE: A tragic single flaw. Apparently these pens must be pressurized (probably explains why they flow so smoothly). As a result, DO NOT TAKE THESE ON AN AIRPLANE. Again, just speculating, but it seems that they most blow a seal . . . resulting in a leaky mess that's tough to impossible to clean. White shirts and frilly blouses - be afraid. Be very afraid. ;-)
Despite that - I stand by every letter in my first two paragraphs. Absolutely fabulous pens.
Contrary to some reports, I've never had this pen leak during my decade of using it, even during a number of plane trips. Perhaps I was just lucky.
Overall, I would recommend this pen for its simplicity, utility, durability, and excellent writing characteristics.
