This paper brings out the worst in my pens. I've never known paper to be TOO
smooth before, but it really is. My gel pens skip on the paper where they don't
in any other notebooks, and even my Jet Stream has troubles creating enough
friction to lay down consistant ink. On the plus side, I love the layout of the
notebook and it's nice and sturdy.
I just purchased this pen and immediately switched out the ink for Uni Style Fit
gel cartridges (which fit perfectly) and I adore this pen. The ballpoint pens
write nicely, I just prefer the gel ink. This is a wonderful pen, the weight is
nice, it's very professional and the grip forces you to hold the pen correctly,
which for me leads to better handwriting. I recommend it highly, with or without
the pen hack!!
I really like this case, it's really slim and attractive. It holds about 14 pens
and pencils in the internal area and more in the zipper areas. The only thing I
don't love about it is that it can get a little bulky. Any which way, I
recommend it highly if you don't need a ton of pens with you.
I ordered this particular color after already being in love with the Slicci. The
royal blue is by far my favorite blue I've found. I have a problem with this
particular pen (though not my other Slicci pens) with skippage, but I think that
it might just be particular to this one pen and not an issue on the whole.
I hope it gets restocked soon! I've almost run mine out of ink!
