I also found my very first Sakura Gelly Roll Gel ink pen in a college bookstore
in the early 90's. After it was used up I could never find another one. It was
one of the absolute best pens I ever used. I was thrilled when I found them here
at JetPens. There are many applications: scrapbooking, journaling, note
taking--the possibilities are endless. I love the way the ink looks and the fact
that it does not skip at all. Love these pens! You won't be disappointed.

Here's are some tricks...
, September 2, 2012
Here's are some tricks I've discovered that will help the skipping. First off,
the skipping will typically happen for me when I haven't used a particular color
for a while. Put a tiny drop of water on some sturdy scrap paper and slowly
doodle in little circles within that droplet. You're getting the roller ball
moist again. Do this for a solid minute. If it doesn't work immediately, try
it up to 3 times.
If THAT doesn't work, start but running the the same pen over a very fine-grit
sandpaper (I use the little pad of sand papers I keep with my colored pencils
for this). You don't have to do it much, just enough so that you would be able
to "scratch" off any dried, built-up ink stuck to the entire ball surface.
Follow by rubbing the tip of the pen with a paper towel to get off any scratched
off bits. Next, do the water drop thing.
If even those tricks together don't work, and the following has only failed for
me twice in umpteen years, bang that pen into a thickish wad of paper. Yes, the
roller ball tip. It COULD ruin the pen for good, but it could also be the jolt
needed to get the ink flowing again. Besides, at this point you'd be pretty
frustrated and ready to toss it in the trash anyway :)

It's a decent pen. It writes smoothly and all but frequent use makes the ink
skip. I've used other products from this brand and they seem to tend to skip.
Overall an okay purchase.

I used to love these pens. I used them all the time in high school and college.
But my most recent purchase left me wanting. The pen skips and is scratchy far
too often for me.

These pens are fantastic! I discovered these at my college bookstore as well,
and after trying one out, I ended up buying four of them! They write like a gel
pen, or rollerball pen, and are inexpensive. I think they are great for writing
or drawing! Get some!
