Only Bic round stick Grip fine-point pens for me. (I'm a bit OCD.) I was traumatized when I was recently forced to switch from using blue pens to black pens for medical records.
Totally read the title wrong...
pilot V5 extra fine. I completely agree with you on this. My wife made that comment about how I have way too many pens 3 weeks ago when I got my 3rd shipment of V5 super packs. I just looked at her, shrugged and somehow lost another pen.
I must have low standards. I think Papermate cheap medium or fine are perfect. I but them 24 for $2.99.
pilot g2 .38 is my fav. for studying though i like the colored papermate felt pens.
I must be the only one who likes bold pens.
The cheapest possible. In my hospital there's a saying that the hospital building feeds on pens: everybody lose whatever pens they happen to carry with themselves over time and usually can't find one anywhere when they need it.
love the bold pens. you don't even need to touch the paper---get it close enough and the words flow.
Pilot G2-fine is my favourite.
my handwriting already looks like i have huntington's so a bold pen just makes it a giant smear.
Love the G-2. I'm such a nerd that I also have a favorite pencil. The Mirado Black warrior is awesome and is bubble test compatible.
I'll add another vote for Pilot G2. I'll take .5 if that's all I can find, but prefer finer.
Fizzy is so fly like a G2...Good call..I used those when I used to grade papers as a teacher. And I once spent a hour looking for THE pen that I lost in the house....
I like the bold because I write a lot, and finer points put a strain on my hand. I need the ink to flow out of the pen. The downside, of course, is that I get inkstains everywhere.
i love Pilot G-2 pens!! Fine and Extra fine. I like skinny chicken-scratch.
My handwriting is such that if I use a bold pen it becomes much less legible.
I once had to do a call shift with only a Bic pen. I was so mad. First thing to do on shift - sneak away to buy a real pen from the giftshop.
I must be tired and blurry eyed, I thought this was going to be a NSFW post :P
Pilot Hi Tec C 0.4mm point, or Pentel Slicci 0.4mm point!
I'm a big fan of the G2, but I'm not allowed to use it at the hospital. Truly! Because it gets smeary on lab labels with their semi-gloss paper, it's banned entirely from the unit.Somebody went to the trouble of listing many pens we may not use. Gel pens are out too, and fountain tips, plus several other specific brands. I suppose it was too much trouble to say "let the ink dry before you handle the label."
the bold G2 is my favorite as well. It makes my handwriting a little less chicken-scratch-esque.
Uni-ball Super Ink, black, micro-fine point. Anything else feels wrong. I'm a tiny-print culprit, and anything wider than a super fine point is illegible. And no, I cannot write bigger.
