I always check out the pens when going to Staples, looking for new and fun things. This pen caught my eye with it stylish exterior. There were no testers at the moment, so I decided to give it a try, after especially since the price was very appealing ;) What a nice surprise! The pen writes very smoothly, and the ink dries fast, so there is no smearing or imprinting on my hand afterwards. In addition, the fact that it has a 1.0 point makes it a keeper. I often find pens that I like, but always in a fine point. I have a tendency to press hard, and the fine point pens can rip the paper. I am so happy that I got the refill pack too! My co-worker went and bought one too after trying mine. The only con was that they only had the silver color at the time, hoping to go back and buy one in a color :)

I like the hybrid ink idea, since I'm left-handed and drag my hand over what I've just written. Being a lefty also means I push the pen into the paper, so smooth ink helps the pen glide as much as it can.
I noticed the Avant line on display, and tested a couple models. I noticed that every pen out for testing was leaking ink (they all had the 1.0mm hybrid ink refill in place), which did concern me, so I picked up some gel refills at the same time.
I've used the pen for a week, and I don't notice too much difference from a "standard" ballpoint pen. The ink flow isn't consistent, making my writing look uneven, and I see smudges and smears, and have ink on the side of my hand. I also noticed some ink collecting on the tip, though I was able to wipe it away before it got messy.
The body is very comfortable, and looks very good for the price, but I can't recommend the ink refill for lefties like myself. However, the gel refills have been great, though I hope they offer a wider version of them in the future.

Smooth as silk

By MartinEllsworth

Verified Buyer

Comments about AvantPro™ Pen with SilkScribe Ink, Medium Point, Black, Each:

I was looking for the perfect pen for my journal writing. Along the way I tried Inkjoy, Sharpies, Uniball and many others. I liked some but Avantpro by Staples is the only one I truly loved. No dragging my hand through wet ink (I'm left-handed) or skipping. Just a perfect writing pen and I can switch out the cartridge for another color, or style. Love it. Great low price too.

The greatest pen

By Lilac Fields

from North Carolins

Verified Buyer

Comments about AvantPro™ Pen with SilkScribe Ink, Medium Point, Black, Each:

This is the greatest writing pen I ever had. It has a very executive look for a low price. When ever I let someone use my pen, I have to make sure I get it back because everyone wants to steal it from me. I lost one of these pens in the company car, so I bought two this time so I always have a backup. I recommend anyone who writes a lot to purchase this pen.
