I bought these pens at...
, September 1, 2012
I bought these pens at a drugstore about 3-4 years ago, and while I've lost
about half of them over the years, I still have and use the blue, red, pink, and
black pens today--they're nearly out of ink but they still write with a nice
bold line, especially blue & red. The silver writing on the barrels has worn off
over the years, but that's no surprise.
By the way: the pens do benefit from a few squiggles on scratch paper before
use, then they warm up and start writing perfectly...because I noticed some
skips during the first few sentences. But after that, its smooth sailing! The
writing is not as smooth as Jetstream, of course, but its comfortable enough for
long journaling sessions and serious note-taking, even on cheap school
notebooks, like USA Mead composition books. The 1.6mm lines are easy to read and
the colors have stayed bold and bright over the years (except when I read my
notes taken with the pink and light green pens, those two colors are probably
too bright for readable notes).
So take a little chance on these pens. I am glad to see Jetpens carrying them,
because now I want the full set again and I cannot find them anywhere anymore!
