Pentel Hybrid Gel Grip DX Gel Pen

The Hybrid Gel Grip DX gel pen is Pentel’s answer to the Uni-ball Signo Broad, a popular broad tip gel pen often used by artists. The DX is a 1.0 mm tip pen that is commonly sold in white as well as gold and silver metallic colors.

The Hybrid Gel Grip DX is a popular white ink pen, but it’s not as good as some of the competitors, like the Sakura Gelly Roll.

Hybrid Gel Grip DX has a 1.0 mm tip that lets a lot of ink out onto the paper. This means the pen runs out of ink quickly and can be messy as so much of the watery ink come out of the tip. This is basically an art pen as it’s mainly sold in white, and then metallics, like gold, silver, red, and green.

The pen is refillable, but the refills are not very popular. They are findable online with some searching for the KF8-A refill.

If you like Pentel’s art-focused gel pens but want a smaller tip you can buy a Pentel Hybrid Gel Grip, Pentel Hybrid Dual Metallic, Pentel Hybrid Milky, or even smaller tips with the Pentel Hybrid Technica series.
