I was disappointed with the quality of pen. It was very comfortable to write with but I found the pen would run out of ink or dry out extremely quickly. I think this product is overpriced for the short lifespan of the pen. I personally would not recommend this product but instead would recommend Frixion erasable pens by Pilot.  Pilot FriXion Clicker Erasable Gel Pen, Assorted Ink, 7/Pk

These are my favorite pens. I love to get creative and colorful with my notes at school instead of the classic black and blue. They are affordable, especially with 8 in a package. They perform smoothly and last forever! I recommend these, especially for back to school.

I love these for school! They are so easy to write with and are not stiff or difficult to write with. The color selection is so fun and gives boring work a little something to look forward to. My one problem with this is that the pens are sometimes annoying because I am left handed and it smudges the ink if it isn't dried all of the way.

The pens are great but dry slow and sometimes the ink will smear. The colors look great though and they write really well. I love using these for fun letters like "Thank You" Cards.

Paper Mate® Profile Ballpoint Retractable Pens are my favorite style of pen. They write smoothly and they retract so that they don't make a mess in your pocket or in your book bag. They write really nice and sometimes you can actually find refills to use in them to make them last longer. I would definitely recommend these pens to others.

I love these pens cuz they write very very smooth they're very good for English classes and stuff like that they are a very good pain and it doesn't really bleed through like some some gel pens wood and it's just it's very pigmented and it's just it's a very good brand and I highly recommend you guys go out there and try it

These pens are awesome, the grip is comfortable, and the ink just glides when writing. I love all of the fun colors as well - I can switch it up, depending on what mood I'm in lol

These are some of the smoothest pens I have ever used and I love them. They write nice an dark without bleeding through the paper or smudging all over my hand or anywhere else. I also like that they write a bit bolder than most pens and it makes the words a bit more legible in most cases

My favorite pens for school and work right here! I tend to be very meticulous when it comes to staying organized with my note taking and using different color pens is my go to method. These pens here glide on easy and smooth, dry quickly and last very long. The color options are great too!
