Fresh or Tired: Pilot Dr Grip™
I’m uncomfortable with idea of my pen possessing more education than I do, which might explain why I’ve avoided a pen that seems at first glance to be designed specifically for me. Because I’ve never actually observed any doctor use the Pilot Dr Grip ™ gel pen, I’ve always assumed the name alludes to the pen’s creator and not its intended demographic. While it’s certainly true that a well designed wider barrel pen can ease some of the cramping and difficulties many writers face, but I’m not sure it merely comes down to barrel diameter. Still, because it’s a Pilot product, that by default makes it a hotly discussed pen. My own experience with the pen has been fair to excellent, with my chief quibble being the rubberized barrel making my fingers itch. But Fresh and Tired is not about hearing my thoughts on a product, but it’s an opportunity for you to express yours! So, dear and much valued readers, what do you like or dislike the various models of this pen you’ve encountered.
