The Pilot Acro 300 is a hybrid pen with a classic, elegant design. It’s the 300 JYP version of the full-metal Acro 1000. The Acro line is Pilot’s answer to Uni-ball’s popular Jetstream family of hybrid pens and a excellent modern-day answer to the ballpoint.
In the US, Pilot’s Acro Ball ($11.25) is a much more popular pen than the newer, Japan-focused Acro 300.
The Acro’s most important quality is its oil-based hybrid ink. This ink is super smooth but also very versatile — it’s truly an exceptional ink. The Acro line is designed to be a modern day ballpoint pen, which is something it pulls off very nicely. The Acro ink is said to have 1/5 the viscosity of normal oil-based ballpoint ink, which leads to smoother writing with much less drag than the ballpoints of yesteryear.
The Acro 1000 and Acro 300 have enlarged grip sections which mean increased hand comfort during extended writing and a lower center of gravity which means more control of the pen tip.
