My use for taking meeting notes is excellent except that the ink bleeds through on Quill yellow lined pads and my day at a glance calendar books. The paper needs to be heavier. Often the ink bleeds to he next page on my yellow pads. I continue to use the Pilot pens because I like the fine points and dark black ink but I am disappointed with the bleed through and still looking for an alternative pen.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
