These pens don't write, they glide!
on May 23, 2009
These have to be the greatest writing pens on earth. I have been writing for 60 years and I have never found a better writing instrument. These pens don't write, they glide. They are perfect for the writer on the go, the student or anyone who needs a reliable pen that comes in an array of vivid ink colors. They are perfect for doing editorial work with the use of red over blue. For color illustrations where a clear green and red distinction must be carried out. The gel technology is a fantastic improvement over the old "ballpoint" pens that I grew up with. Even felt pens cannot match the reliability and smoothness that these pens provide the busy writer.
They are cost-effective on two fronts: first, they have a generous ink supply and second, they're not much more expensive than the older type pens. The translucent body is a fabulous way of keeping track of your dwindling ink supply. And, they are comfortable. I say, if you want to fly, get a Pilot!
