This review is from Stabilo EASYoriginal Roller Ball Pen - Right Handed - 0.5 mm - Pink Body - Blue Ink
, August 13, 2012
I absolutely love the ink and the roller ball on this pen. However, it puts down
a line that is far larger than 0.5mm. However, there are times every few hundred
years where I'm ok with writing such a thick liner.
However, I am surprised as how much I dislike holding the pen. There are a few
reasons. The first one is that there's no place to put the cap. I will lose a
cap that I can't pop on the end of the pen. Again, that's also a forigveable
thing. But the part that I can't get past is how badly the grips are placed. I
realize that the listing notes how great it is for learning to write, and that
is normally done by children. So the pen is probably sized specifically for
children. However, I have small hands (I had to fashion an extra key on my
bassoon just to be able to play every single note, and I wear a size 5.5 ring),
and the pen is still not comfortable for me.
I thought that perhaps I hold all my pens wrong, and I looked up a lot of pages
explaining the proper way to hold a pen, and I am doing it correctly. It's just
that the indents are badly placed for me.
I really want to like this pen, and truthfully, it comes close to being awesome
in so many ways!
The ink is a delight, the look of the pen is unique, and the weight/size is
However, the extra thick line, the fact that the cap could easily roll away
since it can't be attached to the other end of the pen, and the discomfort
holding the pen since the indents seem to placed for someone else leave me very
disappointed in this pen.
