As I mentioned last week in my Jetstream Basic 0.5mm review, I received this Uni-Ball Jetstream F*Series as a sample from JetPens. Since this pen was created for a specific market, I'll let JetPens give the background:
The F*Series may be targeted at women, but I would have no problem using any color barrel in this line. But then again, I am the IT guy at work that breaks the black and grey uniform with pink gingham button downs. I am also a pen addict (as if you didn't notice).
As far as performance goes, the black and red ballpoints and 0.5mm pencil all work great. I've raved enough about the Jetstream line so that you know when you hear that name, you know it is going to work well (Jetstream Premier aside). This multi pen has a twist mechanism as opposed to a click mechanism, and it works pretty well. Sometimes I overshoot the exact spot the cap needs to be in to have the tip of the pen out properly, but a little flick back gets me in the right position. One thing it is missing is an eraser for the pencil, but that doesn't bother me, although some may not like that.
Overall, this is a very solid and interesting line from Uni-Ball, and a little bit outside of their usual fare, so I am always aprreciative of that.
