If you are left handed and have problems with how pens write because of the 'pushing' motion (ball-points can't always handle it, and gel or rollerball types the ink stays wet too long and you get it all over your hand) this is great. The ink still stays wet a little while so if you are writing fast you may have some ink on your hand, but not as much as with liquid rollerball types and it doesn't usually smudge much. The only problem is that the pen cap ridge where you hold the pen is a 'sharp' corner and kind of cuts into your fingers, but I shaved it down a bit with a razorblade just to take the edge off (literally) and that has helped. Have had no issues with the pen drying out. This works so well and they're so hard to find that I am going to probably buy as many boxes as seems reasonable without being crazy overboard so that I always have some on hand. If you're a southpaw you totally know why that's important, and even if you aren't, these are great pens.
I used these pens for years and then couldn't tind them in stores any more. Then I misremembered the name, so I couldn't find them online, either. I thought they were no longer made. Being a leftie, I was always looking for a replacement pen that wouldn't skip in the area where my right hand had been holding the paper. I tried 'em all - fountain pens, gel, roller ball, fiber-tip, you name it. None were satisfactory or the tips didn't last very long before they mashed, bent or wore down. I was pressing so lighlty that I often had to go back re-trace what I'd written because I hadn't pressed hard enough the first time, so it wasn't me being heavy-handed ... I'm so glad these pens are still made and that I found 'em again!
