I instantly fell in love with my pens. Of course, the fact the one of them came in PINK probably helped! I loved the weightiness to them. It felt like something that was going to do the job very well. And I was correct — they are like no other pen I’ve used — and trust me — I’ve used plenty.
For me, I like a nice rollerball pen. I normally use my coupons and deals and pick up the inexpensive Bic pens at CVS or Walgreens. And of course, I always thought that these were such nice pens. I must say that those pale in comparison to these. No smears. No smudges. Clean, clear ink – as a pen is intended to be! So if you ask me if I liked these pens I would have to say no. I LOVE my pens!
