Pilot Ageless Future Ballpoint Pen Review

Product Review of the Pilot Ageless Future Collection Ballpoint Pens

I was first drawn to the Pilot Ageless Future Ballpoint Pen because of the unique way in which the refill extends and retracts. With a twist of the cap the entire writing tip disappears inside the body of the pen in a two step process. One turn and the writing tip extends, a second twist the ballpoint refill extends. Although I am not entirely sure of the reason for the chrome writing tip to retract and extend I found it pretty cool. The twist action operates smoothly and easily and I am able to operate it with one hand.

Review Pilot Ageless Future Ballpoint Pen

Review Pilot Ageless Future Ballpoint Pen CaseThe Pilot Ageless ballpoint pen comes packaged in a cylindrical white plastic case with the Ageless logo printed on the side. The top of the tube comes off and inside the pen is suspended in a foam stand for display.

Pilot makes the Ageless ballpoint pen in either an aluminum version, the Pilot Ageless Future, as well as a plastic version, the Pilot Ageless Present. The shape and design of the pens are identical, the difference being the materials used. The Pilot Ageless Present features a translucent grip section in a smokey grey color while the Pilot Ageless Future has a matte silver finish. On both pens the barrel comes in a wide range of colors ranging from neutral blacks, whites and greys to vibrant bright colors.

The pen has minimal branding. The Ageless logo is printed on the side of the barrel running the length of the pen. On the opposite side is Pilot Japan in small print.

Review Pilot Ageless Future Ballpoint Pen TipThe Pilot Ageless ballpoint pens come with either a rollerball gel refill or a ballpont refill. I opted for the gel refill because I like the way they write. This version of the pen comes with a Pilot BLGS-7 rollerball gel refill in black ink. The pen writes very smooth and I was not disappointed. The pen is well balanced and feels good in my hand when writing. The grip has a slight taper with a recessed area making it comfortable to hold. The way it writes is one of the things I love about the pen.

Final Thoughts on the Pilot Ageless Future Ballpoint Pen Review

Overall I really like the Pilot Ageless Future ballpoint pen. The size of the pen is great to carry in a pocket. The pen length is just over 5 inches long is long enough to fit well in my hand. I like the barrel diameter and the shape and balance of the pen and I like the way it writes. Although I do not see why the pen needs a two step twist action to extend and retract both the ballpoint refill as well as the chrome tip on the pen it makes the pen interesting and catches others attention. Overall this is a solid well build writing instrument and one I am glad I own.

Pros of the Pilot Ageless Future Ballpoint Pen
  • Cool, double action mechanism that operates seamlessly.
  • Smooth refill. Writes well.
  • Short and compact. Great for everyday carry.
  • Great selection of colors. Available in aluminum or plastic body.

Cons of the Pilot Ageless Future Ballpoint Pen

This is a wonderfully-balanced, novel retracting ballpoint (that whole larger point goes in with a twist, like the heal of a snapping-turtle.) GREAT pen, just don't leave it unguarded. Envy is an ugly thing to see. If I could give this one a "6" for functionality, I would. You will not be disappointed with this quality item. I'm a fountain-pen guy, but love this for signing carbons, etc.

This is the first Pen that I have ever spent a significant amount of money on. I chose the copper color because of the unique look it offered. I really enjoy writing with this pen. The grip is large enough for my hand to prevent cramping. It is also lightweight. I can write for long periods of time without having to shake out my hand in order to avoid cramping. I really like how this when retracts when you turn it. This allows me to protect the tip of the pen but also to hide the sharper parts of the pen for when I place it in my pocket. The gel ink writes and looks great. It also seems that this ink lasts for a really long time. I highly recommend this pen. I will continue to shop for and buy more pens from PenChalet.

I purchased the Pilot Ageless Future with the gel ink refill and I love the way it writes. The pen is super smooth. I also like the way the pen retracts to protect the writing tip when it is not in use. I have not tried the non gel inks but would highly recommend any of the Pilot Ageless gel ink pens. You can't go wrong with this pen!
