The first thing one notices about this pen is it's odd appearance. It has a freaky cow like color scheme which doesn't really work for me. Pilot tried to fade the white and black colors in to each other which looks rather silly.
I was also disappointed with the grip. It is so thin that it barely serves any purpose at all. There is also a harsh ridge between the grip and the tip where my pointer finger sits which is very uncomfortable.
It writes fairly well. The ink is jet black which is expected from the Pilot liquid ink line of pens. Although the ink is nice, the tip becomes scratchy at times, which should not happen with a 0.5mm tip. Overall the writing experience was mediocre.
The Pilot VBALL GRIP got 7 out of 10 mummies which is not great but its not too shabby either.
