What is your favorite type of ink pen, and why? I love the gel, as it is so smooth. I also like fat pens, as thin ones cramp my fingers.

I love the thick pens with the rubber grips. I also have a problem with cramping with normal pens, especially if I write a lot; I think it's because I grip it tightly out of habit. I've tried the gel and don't like the way I write with it. I prefer a fine point pen, and the ink must be black. I'm kind of picky, aren't I?

I like pens with purple ink best! But, will settle for blue. I prefer medium point over fine point. I do love the thick gel grip pens. They are a must have.

I found a gel pen that I absolutely loved to pieces. That is until I looked at my hand and how the ink made such a mess on it. The gel hadn't dried and when my hand touched it, I had black ink all over it. I looked like a mechanic! Not a good thing for someone who fitted people with bracing!

One of my favorites was the Dr Grip. A coworker gifted me one and I loved it. The replacement ink was expensive. But, I was worth the extra money.

I do not really have a favorite type of ink pen as I can use pretty much any of them without any problems. I do like the erasable pens though since I make mistakes frequently and it makes it easy to erase without using whiteout. I probably have not tried many of the fancier type pens. Some of the people that I work with have problems with some of the pens that we have them use so we have to keep exchanging them. LOL

I love these pens we have here at work- the 4 color ones- working in accounting- it makes it easier then hunting for a red pen or black.

I use many different kinds of pens. I have one for each different task that i perform but my favorite is a fine tip Parker pen. It can work miracles. LOL It makes my writing look good and that is a miracle because I am not a good writer..

I like the gel ones and the felt superfine for certain types of writing. I have one fat one but it is too heavy.

My favorite type of pen is a medium ink pen. I love fat type pens instead of thins ones for the reasons you give. I admit I am one of those types that steal pens but I never steal one that I don't like.
