The Gel Dilemma / Rands in Repose

Hyper-geek Rands Pantalones (Google) reviewed six pens:

  1. Pilot G-2
  2. PenTel Energel
  3. Pentel Hybrid Gel Roller
  4. Uni-ball Signo
  5. Pentel Hybrid Gel Grip
  6. Pilot V-Ball Grip

for three tests

  1. The Glamour Test. How does it look? How does the pen feel in my hand, and, more importantly, can I spin it around my thumb?
  2. The Line Test. How does the ink flow? The basic straight line.
  3. The Writing Test. This test brings it all together. How does my writing look? Is the pen helping or hurting?

My favorite used to be Uniball but it was replaced by Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Superfine this year, which unfortunately was not reviewed.

Other Rands in Repose blog posts that I recommend:

  • N.A.D.D. (Nerd Attention Deficit Disorder): because it reaffirms the importance of data-indexing
  • More Messy Thinking: because it's great to know that I'm not the only one in the world orienting monitors vertically
