These black pens are my go-to for just about everything. They can be streaky at times, but only slightly. They are reliable and long-lasting. Most importantly, they dry very quickly and don't smear. This is a HUGE deal to me because being left-handed, many pens I use will either smear or my natural writing grip won't let it flow smoothly. These are wonderful pens, and I will continue to choose these first.
i feel like these pens never run out. i always have these available at my desk. my kids and i use them when grading papers since they have many colors available.They write nicely. They are very affordable which is great!
Love the colors that this pen style offers. I don't know why, but I always come back to these pens. I have tried purchasing other brands, but nothing lives up to these. Whenever I write with these pens, I don't get a runny inky line. They last forever so, you won't be needing to go and spend lots of money on pens. If you do lose your pens all the time like me, they are affordable so you can splurge on them if you have to.
I don't know why, but i always go back to these pens. I have purchase expensive, pretty, "highly recommended" pens and i still always go back to the BIC Cristal Pens. When i write I do not like a thick line of ink, or really runny ink. These pens have the perfect writing ink amount. They last me longer. And I always end up loosing my pens so it makes it so nice that they are so affordable!!!
Not really a fan of these pens. They aren’t comfortable to hold, they hurt to hold, and the coloring isn’t opaque enough for me. I prefer to spend the extra dollar or two on a better pen.
I honestly could not tell you how many of these I have simply lost over the years since it started using pens in middle school. I remeber these being the first ones we were allowed to use when I was in third grade and they first started letting us write in pen instead of pencil at school
As a writer I'm always looking for pens that last a while and write smoothly. These pens work great, but without the rubber grip, you're going to get a pain in your fingers/hands after using these. But they work amazingly and are really cheap, too.
I literally love these pens, I don't know why, but I always use them often. I even use it at school for writing and also inking in some of my artwork and it never fails to do what I want.
The ink on these pens seem to be long lasting. I like that the lens write smooth and come in a TON of different colors. At my office we tend to color coat our writing on our patient charts to identify the writer, and this pen is easy to do that with because soft he color options. I personally prefer a more precise tip. This pen does have a downfall, it sometimes leaves small gaps in letters and lines.
These pens are okay in my opinion. They do write pretty good, however, I feel as if there are better pens out there. Sometimes mine write and sometimes they don't. They are a cheap alternative to good pens though. I would recommend, however they are not my first choice.
