Enjoy the feel and elegance of a fountain pen with the security of a roller-ball and none of the leaks with the Uni-Ball Air Medium. The Air’s metal ball is held in a plastic surround, allowing the ball to move without friction when the rollerball pen is held at an angle. The ballpoint pen is filled with Uni-Ball Super Ink, an advanced ink formula that bonds to paper fibers. The ink is resistant to chemicals that wash dye-based ink from checks. Super ink is also fade resistant, water resistant, and acid free. Writing with light pressure will give a finer line as ink is transferred by the ball itself, whilst firmer pressure allows the ink to flow freely around the ball for a thicker line. The average line width is between 0.355mm and 0.55mm when varying with the pressure applied, making the pen perfect for writing or calligraphy. The pen also offers a sleek, elegant look and feel that is comfortable and easy to grip. The capped top stays put and ensures that this pen will never leak in your pocket. Black ink in a package of 3

♦ ROLLER BALL PEN
♦ 0.7 mm/BROAD: 0.35 ~ 0.55 mm (approx.)
♦ MADE in JAPAN
♦ 12 PENS ~ All the same colour : BLACK INK
The smooth-barrelled pens come presented in a cardboard box measuring around 14 cm x 8 cm x 2.5 cm and in a strong outer carton for safe transit.
Each pen is around 14 cm long with the cap on/13 cm without.
Gradually widening slightly, the barrel colour is gently shaded from a WHITE at the bottom through to a pale SILVER-GREY in the middle, with a black stripe effect and 'uni-ball AIR/JAPAN’ embossed twice in BLACK lettering.
The top half of the pen is BLACK with GREY flashing narrowing towards the tip.
The transparent cap pulls off and can clip onto the bottom of the pen for safekeeping, if required; the sturdy shirt clip stopping it from rolling around too much.
The cap has a removable sticky label with the bar code along with the following detail:
✩ UBA-188-L ~ BROAD ~ BLACK
✩ MADE IN JAPAN
✩ MITSUBISHI PENCIL CO., LTD
If removed there is no irritating sticky residue that some labels can leave behind.
When finished using, the cap requires clicking firmly back into place.
In use, the pens do exactly as it says on the pack:
★ Revolutionary Air-tip technology for Scratch Free Writing
★ UNI SUPER INK™
★ UNI-FLOW SYSTEM
★ PIGMENT INK WATERPROOF
The ink flows well at any angle without interruption and the pen seems to adjust to your style of handwriting once you have used it a while, in my experience. The more pressure you put on the tip the thicker the result.
On the slightly negative side, I have experienced a bit of smudging in my haste and if lingering over, e.g. a full stop on lesser quality paper, I have found will bleed through to the other side.
Overall, the ink does not seem to last that long and it is necessary to unscrew the barrel to see how much ink is left.
To be on the safe side, I carry more than one pen on my travels when BLACK ink is the order of the day.
Other ink colours currently available include:
BLUE or mix it up with a handy pack of BLUE/RED/BLACK
Also available is the narrower MICRO, which I prefer overall, and a boxed dozen of them is on a great discount offer (at the time of writing).
‘Write smoothly at any angle with the uni-ball AIR rollerball pen.
Uni-ball AIR delivers a fluid writing experience with a bold ink lay down.
The pen is elegantly designed with a sleek tip and a clean, elevated style:
• The revolutionary nib of the Air, unlike conventional rollerballs, is pressure sensitive, meaning that it gives a writing experience and differentiating line width similar to that of a fountain pen.
• The metal ball of the nib is encased in an acetal plastic, rather than the standard metal surround, which allows for a smoother flow of ink around the ball, and an increased flow as further pressure is applied.
• The 0.7mm ball delivers a line width of between 0.35mm and 0.55mm (dependent on pressure).
• Features Uni's high quality "Super Ink", which is not only water and light resistant, but also "Tamper-Resistant", meaning that the ink cannot be washed off using chemicals and solutions used by people to fraudulently modify documents.’
Mine are far prone to skipping and smudging than a fountain pen. I've used better rollerballs as well. Wouldn't buy again.
I've had to keep an eagle eye out on my coworkers when I lend them these pens, because soon after cries of 'Oh, this is a nice pen!' they'll try to sneak it in their pocket after doing their rounds!
