I've been using the Uni-Ball Signo 207 series of pen (in Black) and i've found it's been skipping a heck of a lot. I'm using normal paper, and no extreme writing conditions. Have you had any isses with this pen?

Love the website as well. It's so nice to see someone happy to test drive the pens out there!

I have that problem with the Blue micro (0.5mm) Uni-Ball Signo 207, but never really had any trouble with the black. The Blue micros are almost unusable for me. I haven't had any problems with the regular 0.7mm ones. Is it the micro that is giving you trouble?

Almost forgot - glad you like the site!

I don't know if you allow links, but that's the pen i'm using, exactly.

it skips far more than i would like. The only pens i've ever had that consistently worked are fiber tips, and the pilot v5 tech points. But they used to have so many colours, and now can only be found in blacks and blues.

I find a real disparity in the American and Canadian Stationery market. Quite frustrating at times!

Hey, thanks for the review of my Signo Bit drawing! I've been doing some more sketches with the Pilot Parallel Calligraphy pens (3.8mm). If you haven't had a chance to write/draw with one yet, you should consider it during your next Jetpens adventure. Thanks again!
And a shameless link to my drawings:

Oh, I hope you do reviews of some of those. I'm interested in how the disposable fountain pens and the erasables do!

dowdyism said...

I will definitely be reviewing all of them soon!

Jet Pens rule - very good customer service, great product range.

I would also recommend jstationery.com. The product range is similar to JetPens, with maybe better prices and shipping costs.

Thanks Steve - I need to give them a try for comparisons sake.

I just recently learned of the Pilot Pockel Minis. Sure wish I could buy the entire 10 colors but my lovely and wise wife has but the kibosh on my further spending due to our financial situation. Sad, very sad.
