So I thought that they deserve a rhyme.
I'll tell you folks how great they are,
And why I rate them thus: 5 star!
While I prefer the .38,
I'm sure the others too are great.
They always write so smooth and clean,
A better pen, I've never seen.
I've never seen them ooze or leak,
And how's that look? Smooth and sleek.
Lots of colors, take your pick,
As kids today would say: "They're sick!"
The rubber grip is awfully nice,
Best part is, that great low price.
At right around a buck a pen,
You might as well just try them, friend.
I used another brand that discontinued my favorite all time pen so I was forced to hunt my next favorite pen. This is it. One thing I never liked about the pens with caps was that the pocket clip (which I NEVER used anyway) tended to poke me in the top of my hand when writing. If I took the top off, they sometimes seemed to grow legs, walk off on their own and I ended up with a capless pen bleeding all over everything. I haven't noticed that this one bleeds, as I am sure I have dropped at least one in my purse while open and have seen no new "blood" stains on the lining.
Not the case here due to the old school retractable point feature. Nothing to get lost. As you can see, the pocket clip is rounded on the end so it won't poke, but it is also shorter than the last pens I used so it seldom touches my hand.
The grip area is padded with some ridges so gripping is easy. The ink distribution is smooth and uniform. Color red is good.
I can't believe I have so much to say about a pen...but I'm a writer so this matters.
He prefers the blue ink has been looking for these G2 1.0 at stores all over and could only find them in black.
When I gave him the box, he was so happy, especially when I told him the low price I paid for this box of 12.
They have a bold tip, but not too wide. They "roll" nice and smooth, it doesn't feel like it's scratching the paper. The flow is fluid without gaps. I've never had to scratch back & forth on scrap paper to get them to work.
They are gel pens, so they will need to dry a bit, they will smudge just after writing.
This is a personal, retail purchase. I am reviewing the item to assist future buyers.
I always make sure I have one of these pens on me when I'm working, and then I use whatever inexpensive/throw away pens I can find to insert into guest checks. I don't take the risk of losing one of these guys.
I'm sure these pens are great for all writing needs, but if you're a server, you definitely need to be using these.
