I would bet that it would leak. Try the Uni-ball Vision Elite for a good airplane safe pen.

I'm not going to lie to you. The DX refills are better.

The DX refills do not, but the 0.38 mm Signo RT refills fit in the 207 barrels, as well as the Premier barrel.

Nice one! As far as your refills go, sometimes they are just shot. It could just be a dud, or it could have some junk stuck in it. One thing I would try is scribbling the tip through a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol dabbed on the page. That may loosen it up a bit and get the pen going again. If not, I'd go with the new refill.

Thanks Kara! You should definitely get in touch with some pen spinners. :)

Much appreciated Patrick!
Looks great Patrick - thanks for sharing it!
I doesn't unless you write slow or leave the tip on the page too long. Then it will bleed some.

I go back and forth a lot. I love all fo the Jetstream 0.5mm models, but the blue 0.7 Acroball keeps pulling me in. :)

Wow - I haven't seen that happen with one of my Jetsteams yet. I normally go for a fierce session of scribbling, of maybe a damp paper towel on the tip to get it going again.

I don't know what a good liquid ink refill for the RT is, but if you want something similar, albeit not as fine, try the Pilot VBall RT 0.5mm. It is a liquid ink pen and it writes great.

Awesome info DJE. I need to get some Bic Crystals to review.

Absolutely right. The regular Easy Touch is not the Acroball ink, while the Easy Touch Pro is.

Head over to jetpens.com and have your wallet ready! If I just had to pick one to try, go for the Uni-Ball Signo DX 0.38mm.

It is a gel ink, and it doesn't really bleed at all.

That's strange indeed. I haven't had any issue with gel pens on Rhodia. About the only paper that I find terrible is Post-its. :)
