By contrast, this new line of Sharpie products is pen-like. I use these pens on notebook paper. My small handwriting stays precise - no bleed here even on the thinnest of paper. And - paramount for this messy left-hander - no trailing smudge caused by the outside of my palm. This effect is the bane of left-handers everywhere (well, those of us who write a language that is left-to-right) and is the single most important factor in determining what pen product I will buy.
I am very particular about the kind of pens I use. I am in health care and the quality of ink we use has to be good. I don't like the feel of a ball point and most felt tip pens feel like I'm writing with a paint brush. Sharpie has a winner with their line of pens. They have 3 styles to choose from, thin, grip, and retractable. I've used all three and they all work great. My preference between the three is the grip but I would rather have any one of the three than other type pen I've used before. If you've never used one then you have to try one out. They are a little more expensive than most disposable pens but it is well worth it. After using these I can't go back to a ball point again, and neither will you. I highly reccomend!!!
I've been writing with these for a little over a month now. While I'm not in love with any particular aspect of the pens, they are still my "go to" writing utensils. The first thing that differentiates these is that they don't write like traditional pens - they write like fine-tip markers. This obviously did not impact their score, as this is something you should expect when buying Sharpie brand pens.
The reason I did reduce their score is that they cannot be left open for more than a few minutes at a time, without writing - like markers do, they will dry out quickly in this situation. To me, this is a big flaw that most pens do not carry. I like to hold my pens while I take notes reading papers, both for work and school. These pens do not work well for this, or any other task where you may not actually write for a few minutes, while keeping the top off of the pen.
Overall, I would buy again, but with the understanding that I really can't use them...
