The A4 DOES fit my Mac book Pro the 13 inch model. Overall I am happy with all
of the compartments although I wish it had more slots for pens ;) The color in
the picture is different than what was received. The color is more of a maroon
red than a fire truck red. This was disappointing...but functionally the product
Not only does this pen rattle, I find it very scratchy to write with.
Unfortunately I am one of those people whose handwriting is highly affected by
the smoothness of a pen. With this pen I write like a first grader. I hope this
gives you an idea of the scratchyness we are talking here. I can imagine a
person who does not put a lot of weight on the pen while writing and who likes
fine lines might enjoy this.
I am so disappointed :( I loved the Pilot FriXion Ball Clicker US Erasable Gel
Ink Pen and when I saw that this pen was all that plus slim, I assumed it would
write with smooth gellie goodness. Nope. Soooooo scratchy I can't even use it.
As far as I know this pen is pretty good. I am a rookie when it comes to
fountain pens. It is true about how the cap does not fully snap on at the end.
So if you have larger hands it could become bothersome. Seeing as how my hands
are small I did not take issue with it.
Here are some things I would have liked to have known before I bought this
pencil. First of all the whole bendy thing. It is not implying that the pencil
is flexible. When one bends it at the middle it clicks out more lead. This makes
it easier to write quickly because you do not have to keep dispensing lead by
pushing the top. Which brings me to my next point, the top thingy is not an
eraser. I thought it was and am somewhat disappointed it isn't. I don't like to
carry separate erasers in my bag. So basically the only thing that makes this
pencil different is the large amount of grippy on 2/3 of the pencil and this
bend-dispense function. Is it worth 5 bucks? No totally not worth 5 bucks. Would
I buy it again? Probably not.
This pens ink color is good and the erasability is fine. However the pen did not
write smoothly. It is VERY sharp and makes an indent on the paper so even if you
erase you can see what you had written. Also when writing with this pen I sound
like Michel J Fox. The clip at the top is the mechanism that retracts the ink
tip and when it is in use it rattles loudly. If I actually liked this pen I
suppose I would make do by using a hair tie to hold the clip in place. I would
not recommend this pen to anyone.
