Not bad at all.
In my experience, ballpoint pens (true ballpoints, not hybrids of one kind or
another) with unusual or non-standard ink colors tend not to write as well as
your basic blacks, blues, reds and even greens. There have been some exceptions
to this (Schneider makes a great brown bp refill, for example) but not too many.
So, I didnâ€™t have high expectations for how this pen would write. But I
am quite satisfied with it so far. The fine line it produces is as consistent as
many a standard black or blue ballpoint Iâ€™ve used. And the light blue
shade is an attractive one, if perhaps a tad too feminine for my tastes.
Someone in another review called the RSVP line ugly. Iâ€™m not sure why. It
is basically just a nondescript clear plastic tube but it has its nice little
touches, too. The lettering on the barrel is nifty and does bring to mind the
invitation the RSVP name suggests. The little ball at the top of the cap to let
you know the ink color is another nice detail.
The RSVP strikes me as quite adequate in the writing comfort department. It
isnâ€™t â€œergonomicâ€ but just a stick with a rubberized grip.
