I've used a lot of different pens, but I have to say, hands down, this is my
favorite everyday pen. I use it for everything! It writes so smoothly and it's
very comfortable. They are good quality pens, I've actually had the same pens
for about 2 years and only now am I buying my first set of refills. They write
very well and if you're interested, get the red ink pen, for some reason that
one writes even better than the blacks. I'll try out the blue ink now that I
have the chance, I expect it will write beautifully too. I can't say enough good
things about these pens! Buy them! For 2.50 you won't regret it!
I use hard lead and write soft, even so, sometimes the lead still snaps. The
only problem I've experienced is that the silver part will become loose after a
little while. Twisting it back on fixes the problem, but I know when to do it
because the change in control is noticeable. Also, when I click the lead down,
it doesn't always stay, sometimes it goes back up the barrel and getting lead to
come out for a new piece takes at least 10 clicks. When it's working well and
while writing it's totally comfortable though. It's definitely worth the 3
bucks, but not much more.
