As a university student, I get through a lot of pens during lectures, when studying and doing assignments. Therefore I have tried pretty much every Biro out there. We also have to use Black pen at both work and in university so these tend to be the ones I have used the most. I also find that using gel pens or fountain pens lasts a lot less time than using a Biro so unless i'm writing a letter to someone, I stick with Biro's all the way.
Bic produce black, blue, red and green Biro's. I have got and tried all of these different colours, but as mentioned above, black Biro's definitely get the most use. The ink comes in a clear plastic casing with a black lid that has an arm on it allowing you to attach it to a pocket, or lanyard like I do at work. This reduces that chances of you losing it. The arm has very good grip and so far, I have never had one fall off my lanyard.
The pen has a metal ball point end to filter the ink evenly onto the page when writing. I have never had any trouble with the ink leaking out of the nib, like I have with gel ink pens. The nib of the Bic Biro is medium in size which I really like. I hate thin nibs as I find them really 'scratchy' to write with. Whereas the medium nib size allows you to write effortlessly and smoothly. The ink in the Bic Biro also dries extremely quickly meaning you don't smudge your writing, which at work on important documents is very important.
The black Bic Biro's last AGES! Whilst at university, when I am writing lecture notes all day everyday, my Bic Biro easily lasts me a month which is a lot longer than most other pens. I have also had a few accidents with my Bic Biro's and stood on them, but they still work which is great, especially if you haven't got another pen on you.
