I love the medium teal...
October 17, 2015
I love the medium teal color of this pen (it's really close to the color of the
plastic, perhaps a little brighter), but the pen itself is extremely skinny and
lightweight. I find that it encourages me to hold it in a less than ideal way,
one which I've been trying to train myself out of, and also to press very hard
into the paper just to maintain control of my writing, which I fear will ruin
the tip too soon. Otherwise, it's a great little pen and perfect for folks who
can do tiny printing or for sketching with a light touch.
The Staedtler Fineliner has a similar color with the same tip size/line width
that is more comfortable to hold but also about one inch longer. If you're just
trying these out and are used to heavier pens, perhaps try one of each to see
which you prefer. Personally, I like the Staedtler Fineliner better.
