Foray® Liquid Rollerball Pen vs. Wal-Mart @ The Office: The Aqua Edition
Of this pen I once wrote:
“I have a thing for turquoise/aqua ink, which I don’t really understand since it doesn’t often show well on white paper. This one reminds me of the Inc Brand “Megatank” or whatever they’re call, which I can’t seem to find anymore. It writes smoothly and lays down a pretty sweet looking line.”
Of the @ the office pens I wrote:
“While all the colors are lovely, I prefer the blue and the purple for daily use. I should have gotten a few more packs, but for now I’m content to fondle and test drive these pens until they go dry, which based on my previous experience with them, won’t be for a very long time.”
The @ the office pens have a tendency to pool ink around the nib, which sometimes makes them messy writing instruments. The Foray pen doesn’t do this. Also the Foray pen gage is smaller. 0.7mm to be exact.
Side by side comparison of the grip. Hands down, the @ the office pen has a more comfortable grip (in my opinion).
The ink color seems identical. Of course someone with a better eye for color than me can probably tell me otherwise!
The ink pooling is really the only problem I have, but it’s serious enough to give this round to the Foray pen.
