Just last week I ordered the Pentel Selfit .7 mm ballpoint pen from Jet Pens. It has a silicone gel grip with over 4000 gel beads and pieces for a personalized ergonomic grip. The grip bounces back slowly, so if you’re particular about keeping the same grip for a certain amount of time, you may like this pen.

It has a white barrel with colored gel grips and clips. You have the choice of 5 different colors: Cool Gray, Green, Orange, Pink, and Sky Blue. The only refill that is available is black in .7 mm. If you’ll look at the picture below [or click for a larger picture], you’ll see the protrusions on the refill that are supposed to catch onto the spring when you depress the plunger. Personally, I prefer gel pens so I’ll be on the lookout for a refill that fits.

Take note of where the protrusions are on the refill. This should help when trying to find a gel refill for this pen.

This pen has a very nice grip. Not too squishy. Not too firm. According to the description on Jet Pens, there are several microbeads that confirm to the shape of your hand.

As you can see, there are ink blobs as I write. This happens to be a ballpoint pen as opposed to a gel ink pen. I did ask Jet Pens if any other refills could be used [like with the Zebra Airfit Jell and Zebra Sarasa clip refills], but they checked the warehouse and could not find refills with the same protrusions on the barrel of the refill. I would like a .5 mm for this.

Even as I write, my hand is getting a little tired. The grip is still very comfortable.
