Review: Pilot Hi-Tec-C Couleur 0.4mm

Pilot Hi-Tec-CThe latest and greatest from the Pilot Hi-Tec-C line, the Couleur is marketed as a portable, thin gel ink pen.  The size lends itself to throwing it in a purse or a pocket and hitting the street, but I just couldn't get comfortable writing with it.  The barrel is much too thin for me, and the finish of the pen makes it slide around a bit in my dry fingertips.  This made for tough writing - I really had to try hard to write well, and that is not a good thing.  It is unfortunate that I could never get locked in holding it because this is a very well made pen.  If you have ever used the Hi-Tec-C Cavalier model (which I love), it is like a mini-model of that pen.  It has a good weight to it and feels sturdy for such a small package.  I think in the right hands, this would be a very good option, but it isn't for me.
