I have been using the Pentel R.S.V.P. fine-tip pens for years. They write so smoothly, and whereas other pen varieties have a tendency to skip or stop working out of the blue, these just keep going. I never have to scratch out a few lines to get it to start again because it simply never stops.
The fact that these are clear gives you a good indication of when the ink is going to run out. With pens in an opaque casing, you never really know until it's too late, but here you can see the amount of ink as you continue to use the product. It seems to last a pretty long time in comparison to other pens as well, which is a good thing.
My only complaint is that the ink takes a lot more time to dry than normal, so if you're writing a list from the top downand you accidentally rest your hand on the ink, it smudges incredibly easily. Likewise, if the ink hasn't dried yet and you put another sheet of paper or an object on top, it will bleed onto said paper or object. Just be mindful of the dry time here, because otherwise it's a great pen.
This is my fantastic black ink pen that has a rubber finger grip which enables me to write fairly easily. It writes smooth and is lasting me quite a whike already. I will be buying more of them.
