Pilot V7 has not helped me due to my “death grip”. Hands start to hurt after a while.

@sbhati513590It does. I keep the answer booklet on the edge of table while writing now.

I have been using V7 but its tip leaves spots on paper and smudges on the other side as well. V5 felt too scratchy.
Can anybody suggest a pen that falls midway between V7 and V5? Also, are there any refillable options in good pens, for writing? Thanks in advance!

@Biryanimafia_ You can try uniball air.

@Biryanimafia_ if you refill the ink in V7, it will not leave spots. It gets a little lighter. Also, after using half of the ink, the spots reduce.

To some extent yes. I am left handed so i have keep changing my hand position while writing every once in a while but I avoid keeping it on table for long.

@Joeyisthebestokay, but I once attempted to refill V7, and that smooth flow just vanished, I felt like air bubbles must have got in or something, peers also said refilling V7 is not a good idea!
