I received this pen for free by doing a survey. It is the best pen I have ever written with. Next I will purchase blue since I like blue better. This is a comfortable pen,writes so easily (glides) does not leak like a lot of pens that I have used. So far by far this is my favorite pen and I do plan on using if for a very long time. I do advise everyone to at least try one. They are not to expensive. At least give this pen a try. I am so happy that they included me in there survey and I got the pen for free. I probably never would have even heard of it if it was not for the survey. All I have to say is Thank You Staples.

Being a lefty who has gone through life with an ink smeared hand, I look for pens with fast drying, non-smearing ink. I found it with this pen. And I like a broad line, also found with this pen. At my job, I am required to use blue ink only. I bought the pen, even though it sells with black ink, thinking I would try it out and then purchase a blue ink refill later - a practice I'm used to since most quality pens can only be purchased in black ink. I should have checked before I purchased. When I returned to the store to pick up the blue ink, I found that the blue refill comes only in fine point and no other brand of refills can be substituted for it. So I had no choice but to get the fine point refill. I was disappointed to find that the fine point does not glide as smoothly over the paper as the broad point. It slows me down. So, sadly, this pen has been relegated to the "only as a last resort" pen jar until such time as Avant provides a broad point blue ink refill. If you are a broad point black ink user, you will most likely enjoy this pen very much. Keep in mind, however, that no other brand of refills will fit this pen and I've found it nowhere else but Staples.

I love it...and I'm picky about my pens!

Comments about AvantPro™ Retractable Pen with SilkScribe Ink, 1.0mm, Medium Point, Black:

This pen writes smoothly and is a comfortable weight and grip. Retractable feature is a must for me as I'm constantly picking up multiple different pens/highlighters quickly and frequently and do not have time for removing and replacing the caps with every use of each writing instrument. The price is very affordable and the fact that it is refillable is great selling point for me. The only factor that almost deterred me from purchasing was that it was only available in black ink...remember, I said I'm picky...but I was pleased to have easily found refills available in blue ink, which was not an issue for me because I would have purchased refills regardless.

Comments about AvantPro™ Retractable Pen with SilkScribe Ink, 1.0mm, Medium Point, Black:

I was merely using up a coupon, but am glad I picked up this excellent, smooth-writing rollerball pen. It writes with a rich, dark, easy-gliding stroke and is excellent for faxing and copying. Writing with it is comfortable and easy on the hand, causing little or no writing fatigue. The rubberized grip does not bruise the fingers or cause too much pressure, so no blisters. The click-top works exceedingly well and the writing tip locks firmly in place with a gentle press on the button. The barrel of the instrument is solid , and sturdy. Al-in-all, I like it!

Avant Pro Pen

Comments about AvantPro™ Retractable Pen with SilkScribe Ink, 1.0mm, Medium Point, Black:

have been using this pen for 3-4 months now, and am very satisfied with the smoothness and feel of the pen. I have a problem with my grip, so this pen is a good size and weight for all the writing I have to do every day as a nurse. It is also very dependable, and writes everytime I need it. Also, the ink is a good quality, in that it does not smear while you you continue writing. I prefer the medium point over the fine point, because it glides along the paper a lot smoother and at a size that is easier for me to read
