The Uni-ball Vision Elite roller ball pen features the Uni-flow ink system, which creates a steady flow of water-resistant ink and smooth, consistent color. The pigment-based ink forms an indelible bond to paper, resulting in strong colors and document security. It is resistant to chemicals that can wash away dye-based inks, thus preventing check washing (a common method of check fraud). The ink is acid-free, fade-resistant, and of archival quality, ideal for valuable documents. The pen is airplane-safe—a protective reservoir inside the barrel keeps air from expanding in the ink tube, thereby preventing in-flight leaks. The sleek durable metal clip, bend-resistant stainless steel tip, and tungsten carbide roller ball enhance the look and performance of the pen.
The Vision Elite BLX collection features intriguing dark-toned colors created by infusing black ink with color.
I bought this Purple-Black in addition to a Blue-Black looking to try new
colors. While I'm a big fan of the Blue-Black and the Vision Elite in general, I
found this color absolutely horrible. It puts down a nice looking line
initially, but it then dries on the page as a very dry, muted, purple/grey/brown
color with no appeal whatsoever.
It works. It writes the same as all pens in the line. But I'm not even gonna
bother keeping it, or else I might accidentally write in this color again.
