If you expect to be able...
June 9, 2014
If you expect to be able to pick up this pen and begin writing with it without
any hassle, you will be very frustrated. I ordered black, green, and red in 03
and black, purple, and red in 05. Both of the black pens work very well and
start writing immediately. All of the colored ones suck to be perfectly honest.
Even storing them nib down does very little. They will write a few sentences
then completely stop. You may or may not be able to get them going again before
putting them away in frustration. In addition, both the red and green colors are
very washed out. The purple is nice and dark, and the black is a bit grey, but
passable. I realize they were cheap. That is exactly how they perform.
This one (Green 03) was the worst of the entire batch. I could never get it to
write for more than a few lines at a time. I finally tossed the refill and put a
blue one in. I now writes immediately and smooth, but the blue is very washed
out as well.
Stick with the black on this one.
