I had to wait ages to get my hands on a few of the Morning Glory Mach 3 0.38mm liquid ink pens and, boy, am I glad I finally got them. I acquired three colors: lime green, red and blue-black. These are standard plastic, single-use capped pens with a metal, liquid ink/rollerball tip. The caps click when posted on the end of the pen so they don’t fall off while writing. It give the pen a nice weight as well. There is no fancy silicone grip area, just a bit of texture on the clear plastic at the grip.
Let’s talk about the wicked 0.38mm tips. My pen fandom started in high school when I first got to use a Pilot Precise V5 and I realized that not all pens were created equally. Now I know there are some flaws in the V5 — its leaky and a little gunky on the end — but they had a nice crisp point that writes well. So imagine a V5 on speed skates and you have an idea of the experience using a Mach 3. Its a needle point tip that’s much finer than a V5 and silkier too.
Now, should I mention that the Mach 3 is available in 13 colors though I question the usefulness of the flash yellow.
The Mach 3s write beautifully. Smooth. Great colors. The lime green is even a great useable shade. I love the blue-black! All hail, blue-black! At $2 each, there’s no reason not to pick up a few with your next order at Jet Pens. My next batch will definitely include the green, light blue and maybe a purple.
