I was pretty excited when I opened my latest package from JetPens and put the Ohto G-Fit Barrel Ballpoint Pen in my hands. It looked great, felt great, and was the perfect size for an every day carry pen. Then I started writing with it.
And that's where things fell apart.
Look at the output on the page below. Normally I don't get too worked up over bad ballpoint pen performance. It is to be expected more times than not. But when a pen has so much going for it like the Ohto G-Fit it is disappointing when the ink cartridge renders it unusable. There were a few words that showed promise, but it was primarily a skip-fest, and on occasion worse than that.
It is possible I got a dud refill. Possible, but not likely. I think it is more likely that this is normal performance from this pen. That's too bad because I think we could have a real winner on our hands here if the writing performance was up to par.
