Makes a Great Gift for Teen/Young Adult Male...
on August 7, 2013
One really doesn't have to be a card shark to appreciate the Retro 51 Tornado King -- or Queen, or Ace, the latter of which was recently released. These are really sharp looking pens with retracting roller ball points. The line is EXCELLENT. Even your guys who may not have the nicest handwriting can produce something decent looking with this pen - really! The point is probably what I would call medium-fine. It can produce a fine line, but you can also "sin boldly" (a la Martin Luther) if you so desire. It will produce a heavier line if you choose. Best of all, while this is not super cheap, it won't break the bank, either. Still, these pens can be refilled ( a 3-pack of refills is around seven dollars). Lest you think, "Yeah, right! It'll be lost in 3 days..." like I did: My son has had his Retro 51 King for over a year -- he can't keep track of a regular pen for 10 minutes! Something about having a "GOOD" pen makes it worth tracking, and worth writing a little more, and a little better. It's a GREAT pen!
