These pens are absolutely the best pens I've ever used and I now use no other pens but these. I write a lot of books as a hobby and usually my hand gets tired quickly with ordinary pens because you have to use more force to get them to write. These Profile pens glide across the page and write smoothly every time. Also, you never have to scratch them on something to get them to work - they write the first time, every time. Additionally, there's no cap to use since it's retractable, preventing it from drying out. The price for these was great for a 12 pack since buying them at the store for a pack of 2 is close to $4, so these were a great bargain for price and quality.

To start off, I want to let everybody know that I write with my left hand. Yes, I am a lefty. A lot of people who write with their right hand don't understand that it's tough for a lefty to get the right pen. Righty's obviously have a completely different writing style than us lefty's! Getting to the point, this is the only pen I ever use now. This is one of the easiest pens for me to use, and the way it writes is extremely smooth. I don't have to worry about getting the ink of my pinky finger that every left dreads because we drag our hand across the writing surface-the ink dries fast enough so that doesn't happen. I am sure that this pen is great for everybody, both lefty's and righty's because ever since I started using them, a whole bunch of people at my school now have them! By far, this is the best pen ever. I highly recommend it to you, and to all lefty's for that matter! Only downside is that it runs out of ink pretty quickly if your a lefty, don't ask me why, I don't know, but I don't care because of how awesome the pen is. While writing this review, I can't believe how much I am saying about a pen. I got a ton of them on Amazon for less than $15.00 Bought three boxes at one time!

I like this pen very much and find myself searching for this exact pen when I need to replace my pens. I like the 1.4 mm point because it makes a bold ball point line that looks close to a fountain pen type of line. It writes easily and smoothly on all kinds of paper textures. This is important to me because I spend a lot of time handwriting on charts and hospital records so fatigue is an issue. Only downside is that the ink does tend to run out sooner than most ballpoint pens and towards the end of its life, it gets a little goopy so you might get inkspots on your paper which is why it gets 4 instead of 5 stars. However, if you're like me, you're more likely to lose your pens before they run out of ink so it's seldom an issue.

Size: Box of 12Color: Black
i tried these pens based on the reviews here. overall, it's a good pen. however, i write fairly small so i found the 1.4 point thickness a little difficult to work with at times. i really wish it also came in 1.0 point too since i love everything else about the pen... the build, the handle, and the ink flow.

My writing has always been difficult to read with other pens but with these its much more legible. During my 1st semester in Law School a Professor told me I had better figure out a way to improve my penmanship or he wouldn't grade my Final Exam. Well, I found these pens and no problems ever since!!!

I just bought this pen from Office Max yesterday. I was actually already in line at the register waiting to pay for a pack of BIC ReAction 1.0 pens, when I saw the Papermate Profile 1.4B pen on the rack. I took it and scribbled on a notepad. Amazing! But wait, I thought, maybe it was just the notepad giving the illusion that the pen wrote so smoothly.. I grabbed a much "rougher" sheet of paper that was lying around near the counter and wrote on it using this pen. Still amazing! I love the deep, dark bold ink and how it glides smoothly on any type/textured paper without effort. The only complaint I have is that it sometimes get "blotchy" initially when you have not used the pen for a while. But this doesn't really bother me all that much. I just love this pen and I can't stop writing with it! I find any excuse just to scribble something down. I bought the 4-pack, and I'm already thinking about going back to purchase more!

.
You get what you pay for with most things most of the time, and this four-pack of black "clickable" pens (PaperMate no. 89471) is no exception; just remember to pull off the little plastic bead at the tip of each of these pens before you start writing. This model Profile is a ballpoint pen, but the thick black line (1.44mm) and easy laydown are more reminiscent of gel pens. The sleek gray barrel, comfort grip and retractability argue gel, as well. I have to wonder if the little plastic bead that has to be removed is really integral to the functioning of this pen, or just an affectation carried over from the gel family? Your first downstroke after the pen has been resting for a while may not be perfect -- a common trait of ballpoints but not gel pens. I can say that this pen does particularly well at making copysets (duplicate-form personal checks, for example) because you can bear down hard if necessary, and the line is thick and bold enough that I can address small- and medium-sized kraft envelopes with impunity. At about a ten percent discount from retail, Amazon's current price is respectable but dyed-in-the-wool bargain-hunters may want to shop around more. Zebra, Bic, Pentel, Foray and even Uni-Ball, among others, all market pens in this general price range.

These PaperMate Profile pens were manufactured in Korea and marketed by PaperMate, a part of the Sanford Brands office-products company, which itself is part of Newell Rubbermaid, a home-products conglomerate headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. The maker does not claim that this pen produces check-writing that can't be "washed" off by forgers and identity thieves.
