This is the first of many pen reviews you are going to see from a package that Pen Addict reader Bryan sent me from Okinawa, Japan. I can tell just by reading his emails that he is a real pen junkie, and was kind enough to pick up and send me several pens to try out.
Bryan mentioned that this Swim Gel was one of his favorites, and I can see why. It is very comfortable to hold and to write with, and performs decently to boot. I put it in the same category as the Pilot G-2 and Uni-Ball Signo 207. It is a well made, solid all-around pen that just gets the job done. I think the G-2 writes a little better, but if you have used an 0.5mm 207 before, then you have a good idea of how the Swim Gel writes.
Big thanks again to Bryan for sending me these pens. Look for more reviews from this group in the near future.
