Staedtler Triplus Fineliner 20 Pack
Advantages: Great range of colours, easy writing pens, great revision aid.
Disadvantages: They run out eventually.
I have to admit - I like owning nice stationery - it's a bit of an obsession that started at school and never really left me. So when I started studying for a set of exams at work, I used it as an excuse to stock up on some new stationery.
I knew what I was looking for - I wanted a range of pens in different colours to aid me with my revision (I'll explain more about that later!) and this particular pack of Staedtler Triplus Fineliners appealed to me because they came in a wide range of colours - you get yellows, greens, blues, pinks, reds, browns - there's a whole spectrum of coloured pens to work with.
I bought this pack of 20 Staedtler Triplus Fineliners from Tesco and I paid around £8.00 for it, but a quick internet search informs me that I bagged a bargain - it seems that you can usually expect to pay between £9.50 and £15.00 for a packet of these pens.
The pens come in a plastic pack that you can be used to transport the pens around. However I immediately put them all in my pencil case, so I never used the original packaging to store them.
As I've already mentioned - there are lots of different colours within the pack - sometimes when you buy coloured pens the colours seem very similar - but with these pens they are pretty diverse.
Each pen is silver with a coloured lid and a coloured end which represents the ink within the pen. I think that the plastic used is a truthful reflection of the ink colour.
These pens are really easy to write with and the ink flows smoothly creating a neat handwriting line. The colour is very deep and distinctive on the page. Also, unlike other finewriters, the pen nib doesn't split until it's been used excessively - and when it does you can still successfully write with it for a while.
As I explained earlier, I used these pens as a revision aid. I used two coloured pens to make notes about each revision topic and I'd say that I probably managed to write about 80 pages of A4 notes and around 200 cue cards before these pens gave up the ghost. I now only have around six of the original pens left, the rest have stopped working, but still, I feel like I got my money's worth with this product.
Although I don't think that these pens are suitable for little ones, because they are a bit fiddly, I highly recommend them for students that are studying for exams. I find that writing revision topics with coloured pens helps me to retain information, so this pack of Staedtler Triplus Fineliners was a worthwhile investment.
I am going to give this product four stars - I am taking a star off because they do eventually run out and the nib also starts to deteriorate after a certain amount of use.
Summary: I'd buy this product again...
