More Jetstreams? More multi pens? Well, for me the answers are unequivocally yes and yes! I am as big of a multi pen fan as they come, and the Jetstream line from Uni-Ball is one of my favorites, so combining all of that into a four ink cartridge plus pencil package - a sleek black package at that - I am all in. And the best thing about it is something that I have never tried before, nor actually seen before - green Jetstream ink.
Has anyone else seen green Jetstream ink available in a single cartridge barrel? I personally haven't, but I would love to know if that combination exists. As a general rule, I am not a big green ink user, but like red recently, I am coming around to using it more often. This green is nice and solid, and a very good shade. It compliments the blue Jetstream ink very nicely. I use the black and red in conjunction a lot as well, but the pencil only gets rare action. If you have ever used a Jetstream pen before, you can rest assured that the performance is at the same high level.
I do have two minor quibbles with this pen, and they kind of work in conjunction. The barrel is wide and the grip is firm. I use a lot of pressure to write with, so that combination doesn't always work well for me, but this pen is set up perfectly for someone with a nice flowing handwriting. At $15 it is not cheap, but you can justify it at $3 per cartridge, right? ;)
