For less than $10, the Jotter is great for someone who needs to channel nervous energy. Its clicker is the most solid, sure, strong, positive, and loud of any clicker I have encountered. It’s certain that if you were mindlessly clicking away on this pen in a group setting that you would either have amused or irritated people.
A salesman handed his Jotter to me to use. I commented a number of times of how well the pen felt and how well it wrote. The next day, he came by and presented me a new Jotter. The pen came with a standard ballpoint ink cartridge as well as a gel cartridge. The standard ink is quite good but the gel cartridge is the way in go. I haven’t used the Jotter for a long duration but it seems that it would be easy on the fingers in a marathon writing session.
The solid feel and all stainless steel construction makes it a better tactical pen than the ubiquitous disposal Bics. The Jotter’s small diameter tapered barrel does not provide for the firmest grip yet despite these seeming short comes, it actually grips more solidly than the Zebra F-701. The Jotter also feels as it has more heft for its size than the F-701 but it gives up a 1/4 in. in length to the F-701. Given a choice between the two for protection, I would choose the Jotter.
Anyone feel any different?
