“ Brand: Papermate / Misc House Type: Pen „
Some use a biro, some use a fountain pen, others use pencil, I chose to the Papermate Pro-Fit Rollerball Retractable Pen. It comes in three colours (Red, Blue and Black) to suit all needs and is manufactured by Papermate.
I bought these from the Poundland shop as I was in need of some new pens and when I saw a 6 pack of these for £1 I bought them straight away. I had heard of the Papermate brand before so I knew I must be buying a quality item. They came on a card backing that contained all the information about the pens along with the company details.
Each pen is 15cm long and is made of a coloured plastic. The colour of the pen depends on the ink colour. On the side it says "Papermate Pro Fit" in white and then at the bottom there is a white silicon like hand grip that extends for 5cm up the pen. The pen operates by a simple push flick on the top that pushes the nib in and out of the casing. The plastic casing is very solid and hardly flexes if you try and bend it.
I find the pen exceptionally comfortable to write with as it seems to of been produced so it is ergonomically comfortable. The silicon hand grip is an excellent feature that makes using the pen very comfortable for long periods of time. I use this pen for a few hours daily in lectures and I don't get any discomfort from it. The rollerball works very well in dispensing a fine and accurate line of ink onto the paper. I find that they can dry up a bit if I don't use one for a while, but it can soon be sorted by drawing on paper to get the ink to flow again. Each pen lasts quite a while as I am only on my second one since November.
These pens offer a comfortable writing experience whilst delivering sharp and neat lines too. For the price I paid, I can't complain with anything about them. For these reasons I will have to give these pens 5/5.
Thank you for reading my review.
