I've had a great experience with the pens. I was a bit surprised reading other reviewers bad experiences with non-writing pens, so I double checked a few of the other boxed ones thinking I was just lucky to pluck out one that wrote, but the pens I checked worked fine. What's great about the pens is that the tip is capped in a plastic ball to stop them from drying out before you have a chance to use them. The pens have refill capability. To open them just hold down the release button to move it under the plastic barrel while pulling on the top cap. The comfort grip is ok. The clip is stiff and has the potential to break easily. If your stuff doesn't work, take advantage of Staples' return policy. It's pretty flexible.

I bought these pens to try them out because I like gel ink pens, but this particular pen is a very poor gel pen. It skips, the ink supply is hard to see if it is running out, and the ink is so faint it is too hard to read. The ink dries out very quickly as well. Save yourself a headache. Send the pens back and get something else.

      BIC makes better pens. Try the Triumph 730 RT pens or the 537 RT pens. Don't waste your money on a box of these BU3 pens.
