I like this pen :)
I always try out new tools, to see what i can get out of them. Increasingly I use this more and more. A Pilot Hi-tecpoint v7 grip. Its basically a ball point constructed like a technical pen. A good replacement for felt tipped Microns and Pilot DR pens. The v7 is longer lasting I find that either of those, hardier and more durable, it's only real drawback being that the ink can smudge, you have to allow for it to dry much like with India ink. But despite that, its very nice ink, fast and fluid, and it gives a subtly variable line ideal for expressive detail work that isn't overly fussy. Good for work that needs to be tight, but expressive in the same ways a brush can be.
