I Miss the Uni-Ball Signo RT - Purple/Black
I am making a plea to resurrect the Uni-Ball Signo RT in purple/black ink. Oh, how I miss you so. The Uni-ball Signo RT was the first pen I ever bought from JetPens. It was also my introduction to my favorite color...super dark purple. I still haven't figured out why I like this color so much. I think that the subtle hint of purple within the dark lines of the ink allows me to be an individual at the office without looking like I'm using crazy colors.
I happened upon the Uni-ball Signo RT while casually browsing JetPens' gel pens. At the time I was just beginning my use of the Chronodex planner, thank you Patrick Ng. I wanted to color code various categories of tasks in different colors but, didn't like the thickness of the Pilot G-2. Voila, the Uni-ball Signo RT. It accommodated every requirement I came up with.
- various colors
- 0.38 mm line
- gel ink
Though I am not a fan of the fact that the Uni-ball Signo RT is not very "professional" looking, I will point out that it writes like any $50.00 ballpoint I've ever held in my hand. I have never had it skip, drip, false start or scratch. This pen has never, and I repeat NEVER let me hang...
I must give "props" to Uni-ball, this pen is great to write with and has replaced my Pilot G-2 use. I have also adapted the refill to my Pilot G-2 Limited pen...though I'll get into why that combo didn't last in another post. I have been able to use the refill in various other pens that accept the G-2 refill but, haven't found the same feel at the original Uni-ball Signo RT's feel and balance.
