Review: Uni-Ball Jetstream Alpha Gel Grip Ballpoint 0.7mm


The Uni-Ball Jetstream Alpha Gel Grip Ballpoint is one bad-ass looking pen.  I can see Jason Bourne ripping this out of his backpack to jot down a quite note while wire-tapping the local CIA contact.  It is that cool looking.  Brushed metal body, super soft gel-grip, Jetstream ink technology - what's not to love about this pen?

I forgot to mention that I received this pen as a sample from JetPens, where you can order it with a black, pink, or silver body.

Okay... it was a sample? You got a $15 pen as a SAMPLE?

How often do you order from jetpens?

lmao - I guess too often?

I've considered one of these the last couple times I've ordered. It looks super cool but I think I'm not into the really squishy grip after having a Signo 207 Premier. It gets to feeling almost sloppy after a while.

Sure looks slick though...

The grip on this particular one is not quite as squishy as the Signo. I like this one better.

Just thought I'd bring it to your attention. I just went to the Uni japanese website and saw their new F series line of Jetstreams. It's basically an executive version of the Jetstream. It's DEFINITELY worth a look.

Wow - that looks really nice. I'll have to look around for one.
