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.

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

This is the second or third Avant pen I have owned. The pen has exceptional quality. The cost is low for the durability delivered. They have good writing ability and long life from the oversize cartridge! I plan to continue purchasing these durable, quality writing instruments.

Smooth writing pen

By David S

from New Bern, NC

Verified Buyer

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

I have an obsession with pens; I own a couple hundred pens from brand name manufacturers that include Cross, PaperMate, Bic, Pentel, Schaeffer, Parker, Pilot, and Tul. I decided to try an unknown brand, Avant. I bought this pen because I liked the way it looked. I was also curious about what was meant by SilkScribe. I, now, have an understanding about what SilkScribe is. SilkScribe Ink writing is technology that allows the pen ink to smoothly write across paper. I have enjoyed using this pen. Majority of my usage has been to fill out the NCAA Men's and Women's Basketball Tournament brackets. I have discovered a new pen manufacturer that makes high quality pens. I highly recommend this pen.
