I have generally had a bias against ballpoint pens. I remember the gloopy, messy ballpoints from childhood that write with wide strokes and leave an oily mess. The folks at Uni-Ball changed my opinion about ballpoints though with their Jetstream line. This is the Jetstream Ballpoint Pen 0.38 with light pink body and it features a retractable point and a silicone comfort grip area. While the outside plastic is a bit bubblegum pink for my taste, the pen writes with a tasteful 0.38mm black ink.
Every time I use a Jetstream, I marvel at how smoothly they write. They never skip or glob like those ballpoint pens of the past. The 0.38 model is the finest line Jetstream I’ve seen so far and it definitely rivals the PIlot Hi-Tec C line for the smooth fine line.
The Jetstream 0.38 model is available in either red, black or blue ink with a black plastic body or in black ink with a choice of four pastel colored plastic bodies for $2.25 each.
