A.G. Spalding & Bros Hexagonal Body Ballpoint Pen - 0.7 mm - Silver Body - RAYMAY BRB117 S
  A.G. Spalding & Bros..., October 2, 2012
A.G. Spalding & Bros delivers yet another fine specimen with their hexagonal ballpoint. Simple and timeless, yet also classy. Like their other offerings, it is extremely comfortable without a dedicated "grip" and is evenly weighted. I've had it for a year and dropped it multiple times but it still works like a charm; however if it gets dented after many falls, the silver version (reviewed here) looks like new whereas the blue variant (which I also own) gets silver dents where the blue paint disappears. The combination of built-like-a-tank tough with upscale appearance give me no choice but to award it five stars.
Zebra Espina Pearly Rubber Ballpoint Pen - 0.7 mm - Black Grip - Blue Ink - ZEBRA BA3-BK

At first I was skeptical because I prefer heavier pens. However, I was quickly convinced this pen is a keeper. Unlike other reviewers, I found it wrote smooth; the ink never skips. The pen's shaft is a futuristic, somewhat sticky texture, and easy to hold. The clip is sturdy but is only moderately stylish when on a shirt pocket. The pen is a pleasure to twirl and has become my standard household ballpoint pen. The "black" grip is actually an attractive shade of dark grey; I gravitate to this colour as I find Zebra's other Espina offerings too overtly feminine for my taste. While it took me a few weeks to get used to the lighter weight, those who regularly use pens in the 0.50oz range should really enjoy this one.
Uni-ball Signo RT UM-138 Gel Ink Pen - 0.38 mm - Red - UNI UMN103.15
  An outstanding pen. The..., November 23, 2009
An outstanding pen. The grip, while not soft or gimmicky, doesn't slip. The red (reviewed here) is bright and easy to see against black or blue text; the ink is bright without being watery. The choice of 0.38mm nib size is outstanding for those who tend to prefer fine text. Notice how wide the ink store is inside the refill: coupled with the fine point, the ink in these pens lasts a long time. Some reviewers complain of scratchiness; I tend to press hard when I write but I find the tip of the UM-138 delivers firm, deliberate strokes without being too scratchy. The ink never skips. I will continue to purchase these as my standard, household gel ink pen.
Uni Propus Window Double-Sided Highlighter Pen - 4.0 mm / 0.6 mm Twin Tip - Yellow - UNI PUS102T.2

The window feature of this highlighter is outstanding, particularly when highlighting text where the line spacing is close. Good value for the money. The only downside is that the shade of yellow is not as bright as that found in some other highlighters.
