Bic Yellow Barrell Ball Point Pen
Advantages: Fine nib gives clearer writing
==Bic Yellow Barrell Ball Point Pen==
We have a variety of pens in the soffice where I work and from time to time we somehow get these Bic yellow pens as opposed to getting the cheaper own brand pens that seem not to last very long and break if too much pressure is put on them.
Of course more often than not these Bic Yellow biros will move like hot cakes out of the stationary cupboard and before you know it the boxes have gone and we are back to the cruddy own brand ones. However I always make sure I get well over my quota of these Bic ones as they are my preferred biro of choice.
The fact that they have a lovely fine roller ball nib means that they have a great thin writing line and make my handwriting seemingly lots better. The shape of the case which houses the ink is very comfortable to hold and because of the hexagon type shape means that the grip is easy too.
They are noticeable instantly as a Bic Biro and seem to have been around for a good number of years. I remember using them at school though back then I preferred the chunkier lines that were made by the classic Bic biro as opposed to this one.
Not only do the lines take on a nice fine appearance when writing but the ink will never clot or smudge on the paper unlike the other cheaper types of biro that we have at work and for a whole document these pens give the best results every time.
One of the biros seems to last for a good while and because I get more than my recommended quota out of the stationary cupboard a few will often get taken home with me and I now find them kicking around in drawers all over the place. This is a good thing because unlike other biros these ones always seem to have ink in and it does take a lot from these to dry out or become empty of ink.
The only downside to these pens is the fact that I always loose the little black lid. This really is not much of a drawback when it comes to writing or general use of the pen but I find it feels as thought there is a missing part if the lid is not in place after use and I much prefer it when the lid stays on the end whilst in use and over the nib when not.
All in all I have to say that these Bic Yellow Biros are far better than any old cheap make of pen because they give a better look of wiring and last far better. I would even say that they are better than the regular Bic Biros as they are easy to find in a drawer due to the bright yellow plastic which the barrel is made from and also they have a nicer thinness to the nib which the classic Bic biro doesn't have.
I think a fantastic score of 5 out of 5 stars is in order for this Biro. I know it is only a cheap pen but it has got to be one of, if not the, best cheap biros you can get.
I think for a box you will look to pay around £6 depending on your stockist and individually they are around the 50 p region. Worth a try I feel.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
Summary: A great pen
