Pilot Juice gel ink pen review23 June 2014
The Pilot Juice is a gel ink pen that is available in three different tip sizes (0.38, 0.5 and 0.7mm) and a large range of colours. (Thirty-six colours in the 0.5mm size, fewer in the other sizes.)

The Pilot Juice has the writing quality of a Hi-Tec-C but a much better barrel. The 0.5mm tip is my preferred size but with such a range of tip sizes and colours there’s a Pilot Juice for everyone. Each time I place an order at Cult Pens I treat myself to another colour. The Pilot Juice is my new favourite gel ink pen.
