||Been getting heavy on trying different pens recently, and thus far, even after testing the steel blitz, these are my favorites. The way it sits in my hand is super comfortable. It writes smoother than any other pen Ive used. Also I really love how thin the lines can be while still tapering depending on how you squeeze and flick it.
Ive heard a few people say that they really hated them due to how temperamental they can be, and honestly at first... I was right there with 'em. The ball kept sticking and feeling jerky, it would flow WAY too much or not enough.....
... BUT... then I actually gave it a good 10 minutes of practicing on a sign I have laying around, and I got used to it. You have to be extremely even with the pressure on it, squeezing light but firm, while pressing it to the surface with just the right pressure. If you squeeze too hard, it shoots wildly (which could look good if you know what youre doing), if you press too hard, the ball in the head gets stuck and wont roll. But just trust me, after giving it a moment, and really finding the sweet spot, I guarantee youll be in love.
I notice they take about 10 tags to break in to where itll feel smooth.
My best advice to you? Buy one, find a nice spot somewhere about shoulder height, hidden away where no one will find your toyish warm up tags. And just get used to the pen, youll find just where it needs to be if you give it a solid try. The ball has a light tender feeling to it when it clicks into its place, and the tube feels just malleable enough when youre squeezing it right. Youll love it for sure.
Did I mention the colors are brighter than my outlook on life? (thats honestly super bright btw.....)
Still try out a steel blitz as well. They write thicker, and theyre cheaper. But I tell ya. Regardless. This is a darn good pen. I really like it.
