    +1 for the Jetstream. I burn through a refill every few weeks as a technical consultant and so far it's been the most consistent.

    My wife is a doctor and even though all notes are supposed to be stored electronically, they're all still taken with pen and paper...and then either dictated or entered into the computer later. Assuming she doesn't lose a pen first, most gel pens only last a few weeks for her. The jetstream seem to last longer and she likes the fine tip of the 0.5 so I've been keeping her supplied.

    It's interesting to me that even after she's found a pen that she really likes, once she runs it dry or loses it, she'll revert back to whatever cheap pen she happens to find rather than refilling the good pen or replacing it with the same type of pen. The idea of spending a little more money on a pen is just alien to her.
