Most of the time I will pick up a gel pen and use it rather than a roller ball. There are some roller balls that are worth it and do write nice but nothing can come close to the smooth flow of a gel pen. The bad thing is that some of them take a little longer to dry so you end up with smudges or smears.

I am so spoiled with them now, have to have them by the bags. They are always on my desk now. I havent had any problems with smudges so far...I just love the smooth roll, its more fun to write with.

Hi! Freak369, Do you happen to be left handed? I find that when using gel pens that they smear when I write if I am not very careful until it dries. I love he color varieties they have with the gel pens..

I love the gel pens and whenever I get one I hide it from the children, I have one in everyone of my locations, the kitchen, my office, near my bed and one where ever I left my computer last.

Once you start with them, you will not want to go back to the others. I tried it and I didnt like it...You can get the bags for a reasonable price...

I like extra fine markers, very useful and you can write on everything...CD, DVD, paper, plastic...:)

I use regular pens, because i dont know how to use gel pen, it feels different when i'm writing. although gel pens we're great, its just that it doesn't work on me..

I like just the normal biro. I dont write alot but I have used these for years and they just seems really comfortable to use.

I prefer the oridinary pens, particularly a fine, good quality bic biro. I don't like the messiness that can result from gel pens ifd I am not careful. I guess I am "old", & prefer the traditional biros. I don't like all those cheapy biros, or gel pens. They don't last long.

i love using gel pens and love how they glide over a piece of paper so easily. My problem though is that I am left handed and sometimes gel pens don't dry fast enough and when I write I sometimes smear what I have wrote with the pens with my hands. Does anyone else have this problem?? I love the range of color varieties they have with the pens. Beautiful colors.
