Not the best writing instrument
Poppin's gel pens are way better. These write fine, but feel cheap and now that I have the gels, I rarely use them. They need a grip or something. You're paying for the color and the benefit of having a coordinated office. So, at this point they're pretty much decoration.
They're good, not great. They're like a normal ballpoint pen, don't expect anything better. The only reason I paid this price for them is because they look clean and sleek. And the color is a really fun little pop on my desk. I would probably buy them again, if only because they do look so sleek on my desk. They're a good enough buy, as far as ink goes- I haven't had much smudging myself. As for thinking the ink is the color of the pen itself- didn't have that problem. I mean, they sell white pens, come on.
