Ok, slight update to my previous review. After writing with this pen for the
past few days I have to retract my prior statement, it did glob a bit at first
but now it writes quite well and no longer globs. My co-workers love it because
of how bold it writes and my son wants some for himself...needless to say I am
ordering more, now as a matter of fact. :)

I can't believe how smooth this ball point pen writes. I have always hated ball
point pens but this one is amazing. Smooth, light and evenly distributes ink.
Good reasonable price. I am going to order more.

I have used this bp for a few years and the only negative for me would be it is
not available in a retractable version. I have lost many tips, but this the best
writing bp I have ever used. I am going to try the new Zebra Z-Mulsion EX and
will give you a comparison. I only use broad pens and bp works better for me

As some one who exclusively used Crystal BICs throughout college, I can honestly
say I thought that I would LOVE this pen, unfortunately...I really don't even
As a plus: The ink does flow incredibly smoothly right out of the gate and the
ink is really dark. (Usually only seen once you've used a smaller ball point
regularly for a longer period of time.)
The negative: The wide tip shows the ink streaking that ballpoints cause to be
instantly apparent. What I mean is that the ballpoint ink does not write in one
clear line (say like a gel or liquid pen). Instead, as it is distributed along
the page as you write, there is a clear lack of ink in some of the strokes.
It's likely because the ball is so big that ink cannot be evenly distributed
over it. In smaller tipped ballpoints you probably wouldn't notice it at all,
but in this 1.6 mm tip you will likely see it immediately. At least, I did.

This is my favorite ball point. Writes perfectly. Like the black more than the
blue. Wish it was available in a click variety.
