I came to this pen like most others will, as a convert from the G2. Maybe you are like me and one day your coffee spilled on your notes and everything ran from the water soluble ink. Or the envelope got caught in the rain. Perhaps your right hand smeared ink all over because the G2 didn't dry quick enough. The sad sap mentioned above was me.
Then I scoured reviews on pen blogs (yes there are such things) and found the uni-ball jetstream be constantly mentioned as not the most expensive or absolute best, but head and shoulders above the G2 or other Office Depot rejects.
I am now a convert. After picking these babies up I went for the 12 pack (blue natch.) and havent looked back.
HOWEVER, recently I have noticed that when I quickly click the back of the pen to retract the tip, THE BACK OF THE PEN AND THE INK TUBE FLY OUT. At first I thought the problem was confined to one pen, but I broke open the rest of the pack and discovered they all had this issue. I have unintentionally shot a lot of poor souls who unfortunately happened to be sitting beside me. As much as I love these pens, they have become a source of embarrassment for me. Unless this problem magically resolves itself or I break my habit of quickly clicking the retractor, I'll have to stick to only using these pens when there is no one else around.
Summary: LOVE these pens, but there are design flaws.
Or something like that.
Anyways, they are definitely great pens, but they just don't seem THAT great. The drawn line isn't totally uniform for me most of the time. The ink does dry very quickly, so smudging isn't a problem. They are also very comfortable to hold.
They are my favorite pens right now, but I suspect I can find something better.
