5.0 out of 5 stars Good Professional Pen, February 25, 2007
By 
This review is from: Pilot Precise V5 Stick Rolling Ball Pens, Extra Fine Point, Black Ink, Dozen Box (35334) (Office Product)
I've been using this model pen for over 15 years. I started using this pen when I was in the military, where my job required me to transcribe live, foreign language radio transmissions. My colleagues and I tried many different brands and models of pens, and for me this pen offered the best performance. When speed is essential you learn to write small and the Extra Fine point is perfect. Over the years I've noticed some problems with this pen, but nothing bad enough to make me choose another pen. After beginning to use a new pen, if you leave it tip up for a long time (several months) it stops working. Also, it is necessary to use a lighter touch with this pen. If you press too hard the tip will bend and if it bends too much the pen will be useless, so using this pen in a rough environment, i.e. trying to write while in a vehicle that is driving off-road, is not recommended.

I still keep my eye out and try new pens every so often, but I keep coming back to the Pilot Precise V5 Extra Fine Point.

Nice review. Did you also find the ink to be water/sweety-palm proof once the ink drys? Does the ink have a tendancy to bleed through paper like water based (porous tipped) pens?

Replying to an old comment, but... I've only recently bought a few of these and I'm not a pen aficionado, but... I find that this pen can bleed through if you write over the same spot twice or when the pen is held in the same spot (periods tend to come through the paper for me). That said, it is not very much, and it hasn't been distracting when journaling (my journal has double-sided printer-type paper as far as I can tell). I just tested with a little liquid and the ink does appear to be waterproof - it should handle sweaty palms just fine.
