Smooth writing

By Office Manager

from small town in Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about Papermate Paper Mate® FlexGrip® Elite® Retractable Ballpoint Pens; Medium Point, Blue:

The FlexGrip Elite Retractable has a small, thin barrel which might be a problem for someone who has difficulty gripping, but the rubbery-feel grip of the barrel means that it doesn't slide. Personally, I would prefer a larger diameter barrel, but someone with small hands might like this one just fine.

The ink seems to flow smoothly and evenly, although I haven't left the pen in the "out" position so it hasn't had a chance to dry out. These are also new, so no "age-related" problems have shown up. I am hoping that time does not cause any problems with ink flow in the future.

Overall, a good pen at a reasonable price!

Problem with ordering to store

By Usually Happy Staples Customer

from Vauxhall, New Jersey

Verified Buyer

Comments about Papermate Paper Mate® FlexGrip® Elite® Retractable Ballpoint Pens; Medium Point, Blue:

Needed these pens. Ordered on line to ship to store. Got email that product was shipped and then email that I could pick it up. But it wasn't there. Two very nice associates spent fifteen minutes looking for the small package. They had to re-order it, and it finally came, two days later. I hope I don't get charged for two shipments.
By the way, the pens are great. Smooth writing, good ink.

    • Everyday Use

    Comments about Papermate Paper Mate® FlexGrip® Elite® Retractable Ballpoint Pens; Medium Point, Blue:

    People in my office particularly like the blue ink version of this product because you can always tell when something is "the original." The ink lasts a long time, never smears, and flows smoothly. The soft grip is comfortable to hold and use for long periods of time.

    Thin blue ink Papermate FlexGrip Elite

    By Transactional Law

    from Newport Beach, CA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Papermate Paper Mate® FlexGrip® Elite® Retractable Ballpoint Pens; Medium Point, Blue:

    Blue ink flow is fine, but the feel of the pen is not as comfortable is a wider barrel. The silicone grip is not as soft as others (zebra) and I imagine will cause calluses from continuous use. Feels lightweight, top part plastic and feels cheap. Will not buy again.

    Ink flow good, assembly poor

    Pros

    • Glides Smoothly

    Cons

    • Falls apart

    Best Uses

      Comments about Papermate Paper Mate® FlexGrip® Elite® Retractable Ballpoint Pens; Medium Point, Blue:

      The retractable version of this pen is not a good choice for a writer with a heavy hand. I press too hard when I write and the top of the pen pops off and flys away. The ink and flow are as good as the standard Flexgrip Elite pen but the flimsy nature of this version will send me back to the original.
