This pen was disappointing....
May 21, 2009
This pen was disappointing. The grip's "squishiness" does feel cool, but it's
not squishy enough - there's not enough cushioning. When I use the pen, I grip
it and pretty much feel the inner plastic barrel part of the grip. If I hold the
pen w/ a lighter grip, it's no so much of a problem. But, I'd still expect a pen
designed to have an ergonomic grip to have a better, more cushioned grip.
But it's still worth checking out. I guess the trick is to try to not squeeze
the grip too tight. It is fun to roll the pen around in your hand and feel the
"give" of the grip area (it doesn't feel like beads, though).
I also like the green color, and the orange one looks great, too. But I've seen
better ergo grips from Pentel (Ergonomix, Ergotwist, and Flex-Fit II), and I
hope their future ergo-grip pens will be more ergo!
