PS everyone .. these are the ultra-micro points which are very uncomfortable to write with.

they're actually excellent for science and engineering. the tips are 0.38mm so lines are quite fine. it also comes out as scratchy compared to the 0.5 or 0.7mm so probably not ideal for writing mostly words.

I find that North American stationery products get wider and wider (upwards of 1.0mm) while other countries, especially East Asia, gets finer and finer (I've seen and used down to 0.25mm), like the Pentel Slicci or the Pilot High-Tec C. Maybe it's just a difference of writing styles. East Asian writing is a bit more intricate i guess.

They sell 8-packs of these for $4 at Dollarama. Probably the best pen value out there.

Give the Pilot Juice .5mm a try if you like a smooth writing fine point

Great deal if you like colour variety....https://www.amazon.ca/Pilot-Juice-Ballp ... uice+0.7mm

For those looking for smooth writing, I recommend the Uniball Vision Elite. Picked up a 12 pack for $16 from Amazon end of November, instantly regretted not getting more packs. Been waiting ever since...

the Signo RT1 .38 are pretty smooth, but not the most comfortable to hold- the barrel is too thick IMO

Looks like we got a bunch of pen fanatics in this thread. How about Pentel EnerGel pens? My favorite used to be Uniball Signo 207s but after trying EnerGel I don't think I can go back.

I've always been a Pilot G2 Ultra Fine 0.38mm user, how do these compare and is it worth switching over to?
If you stare long enough at a lurker, the lurker stares back at you.

I'm curious if there much difference in Gel vs fast drying ink.
I love the Jetstream RT's but they're so expensive that I might look at these 207's if there's not much difference.

- ink is lighter
- I preferred gel pen for writing
- great for things I know will erase and change, like doing math

Yeah, I don't understand. Fine tips make even doctor's handwriting legible.
