    Butterflow is good. Reynolds racer is gel pen so is there smudging problem with it?

    Bril isn't water resistant. Pilot blue would be better option for the exams.

  • Last time, I ignored the importance of pen in Mains and paid some marks accordingly. Thanks for initiating the thread.
    But, hella lot of pens in the market. Just confusing.
    My suggestion: Buy every pen mentioned in here, from market and test yourself. Because, some have fat and short fingers, while some have slim and long ones. While other geniuses doesn't require a pen at all :P

    Thanks. I will check that out.
    How long before it fades a bit? My bril fades fast.
    If you have done a blue vs black comparision for any brand, would you recommend black?

  • Hi which pen is recommended in ball point pen category...I generally use either writometer or pin point....ink pens like pilot I can't handle letters will be too sharp for me with them. Is gel pen also similar to ink pen or is it more like ball pen?
    ·
  • Linc Glycer is a pretty good pen for folks who write small, sharp and block letters.
