Something that will upgrade your Pilot FriXion Ball Clicker: SMART-GRIP

(Original Mai-bun.com article, 3/5/2018. Written by Takuya Takahashi. Translated by Bruce Eimon.)

UNUS PRODUCTS SERVICE. has released a version of their SMART-GRIP line for the Pilot FriXion Ball Clicker. SMART-GRIP is a series of aluminum replacement grip sections for common-place Japanese pens.

Previous versions of the SMART-GRIP have supported the FriXion Ball 3, the FriXion Ball 4, and the Uni-ball Jetstream 4+1. The new release is for the FriXion Ball Clicker.

The FriXion Ball Clicker is one of Pilot’s most popular pens, and I am sure it is part of the daily carry for many of our readers.

Five color variations have been released, and I went ahead and tried two of them.

It gives the pens a slick look, and I feel like it makes the pens easier to write with by giving them a lower center of gravity. Compared to the rubber grip that originally came with the pen, this offers a cooler touch without any stickiness. I imagine it will maintain a nice feel even for long writing sessions.

The tip of the grip is also replaceable, so you can customize the look even further by buying two different colors and swapping their tips.

The SMART-GRIP allows you to upgrade your pen just by swapping the grip. I would highly recommend it to people who love using the FriXion.
