I see the pressurized cartridge pens as being "take a note/sign for dinner" type pens, by & large. If there's much writing to be done, it's with a fountain pen, rollerball, or gel pen with better ergonomics and smoother writing. As previously mentioned, I own some Jotters, and I put them in the same category...pocket pen for quick but not extensive notes, signature, etc. If I have to write pages (Pl.), I grab a Waterman rollerball. Ballpoints are the equivalent of cruel & inhuman punishment if you have to write much....plus they don't write a dark enough line.
