Fresh or Tired: Pentel R.S.V.P.®: Medium Line Ballpoint Pen
The Pentel R.S.V.P.® ballpoint stick pen is one of those loss leader I never recall purchasing yet somehow end up having a dozen of! I have no idea how these pens make their way into my home, but I would guess they are left here by unsatisfied customers, who think I won’t notice.
I love the bright pink translucent barrel, but not much a fan of the black rubberized grip. I know these are the inspiration to countless knockoffs, and I can’t say they perform any better. It’s a nice writing experience, but by no means special or memorable. Still I know these pens have their fans. Whenever I give one to a sales clerk they seem pleased. Though maybe they’d be pleased by the donation of any pen!
Here’s a closeup of the meh rubberized grip. I just never like the way those feel between my fingers. Kind of slimy without actually be slime covered or wet.
Writing sample denotes decent performance, but again, not going to set the world ablaze. Now it’s your turn to tell me what you think of this pen. I’m especially interested in hearing from those who really love these pens.
