Let's face it, for whatever reason, the nature of a notebooks writing surface matters. And the pen we choose might matter even more. But pen choices are as varied as there are tastes. Some like the extra fine ballpoint, some the fine ballpoint while others might fancy the Bold ballpoint pens. All depending on what you want -- thin or thick lined writing. Again, this goes in tandem with the nature of the writing surface which too varies from rough, hard, normal to near-glossy surfaces (like the Kokuyo notebooks).
This is a pen review (for a BOLD ballpoint pen at that), so let me stay on point (pun not intended).
To give the review a measured context, I'd need to stack different brand pens side by side to give anyone reading this a visual imagery of what a 1.6 mm pen looks like versus another 1.6 mm pen from the same brand but of a different model version. I also threw in a 1.4 mm ballpoint into the mix.
They are: BIC Velocity 1.6 mm RT pen, BIC Atlantis 1.6 mm RT pen and a 1.4 mm Paper Mate Profile. For those not too familiar with what a BOLD 1.6 mm or a 1.4 mm means... it's the width or thickness of a the line drawn by the said pen. Same applies for 1.0 mm, 0.7 mm, 0.5 mm, 0.38 mm.
The bigger the size, the wider the bore. Thus there is no way you can exclude the issue of ink blotting, bleeding, or even streaking (these do not streak). Though this is relative to the kind of paper you write on i.e. rough, smooth or gloss.
I used 2 types of writing surfaces to demonstrate how the ink of the 3 brands appear (see pics). One is from a Japanese import paper MUJI Notebook (tan/beige color) the other is the bleached white of MEAD two ring business notebook.
COLOR -- In terms of vivid BOLD blue color, I give it to the BIC brands.They are ahead of the Paper mate Profile. Not to say the PP is bad. No. It's been my go-to pen for story telling/writing up until now.
FLOW -- In terms of the smoothness of writing ... it's pretty damn close. I would give Atlantis a very marginal edge over the other 2, with the Paper Mate Profile & BIC Velocity a near dead even draw. None of them skips or stutters or "scratchy feeling" when they're going.
STAIN/BLOT: This is where, as I earlier mentioned lies the "curse" in the midst of the blessing. The larger the ballpoint, the more likely to blotch. Now the paper mate at 1.4 mm does not blotch. So, I give it to the PP brand on that one. But at a "huge" 1.6 mm ... something had to give (I'm sure if PP had a 1.6 mm model it would blotch too). Now, it's not as bad as it sounds. I only notice this for Atlantis and Velocity when the pen makes first contact with the paper. Once you get to scribbling along it's smooth sailing. SUGGESTION: To mitigate against this, just wipe tip with a paper towel before writing. But if this is something that'll bother you then I suggest you stick with the Paper Mate Profile.Or alternatively you go down a notch to Medium 1.0 mm or Fine 0.7 mm ballpoint pens.
The Atlantis -- from my own impressions is the most blotch prone when compared to Velocity. Paper Mate Profile is the least prone and thus takes this one for the win.
These are a definite recommend. But it will come down to individual needs when choosing.
Like I mentioned, I included pics (please overlook the bad handwriting).
Hope you found this review helpful.
The blotch is enough to cause some frustrations when using the 1.6mm pens on very smooth or glossy paper. So, I'll take Paper Mate Profile over the other 2.
Just bought my 3rd packet of Paper Mate Profile 1.4mm RT pen. Thta tells you how good this pen is. 'Nuff said.
This is actually my second time ordering, because I really like these pens. But I don't remember who was the seller for the first time.
I'm guessing these have sat in storage a long time. The box was dented in around the edges. They wouldn't write at first as if the ball was stuck. I took each pen out and vigorously drew in all directions to get the ink flowing. I've used one pen to test for about a month and it's fine. Three stars were for the box issue, knowing these are older, and wondering if the ink inside will hold up since I'm not using all pens everyday.
Love the thick line and blue color that no other pens have.
"World's Smoothest Pen"....and after using them I have to say that I agree! They write like gel, but without the smearing and without the hefty price tag. Not to mention they have an ergonomic grip that makes it super comfy when writing for extended periods of time.
The Other Stuff: Order arrived quickly as promised, packaging was good, and the product arrived in tact.
