  • oh the pen thread is here :D seems like the old times are back at forum

    I submit my opening entry - Cello jet maxx GOLD
    Pros
    1. lightweight 2. cheap 3. brilliant grip (atleast for me) 4. refill available
    Cons
    1. Sometimes the refill quality is a let down
    2. have seen ink fade over considerable amount of time
    Falak ko zidd hai jahan bijliyaan girane ki,
    Humein bhi zidd hai wahin aashiyaan banane ki.

    First attempt 2016. Second attempt - 2017

    Prelim - 2, Mains - 1*, Interview - 0

    My favourate :
    1. Classmate octane gel pen
    2. Classmate octoglide gel pen

    Thinking to change , as gel pens cause smudging

  • 2 Rs use and throw.

  • I use Chinese pen (called WingSung) with Chelpark ink. I've been using it for a long time.

    In between, I also use Cello Maxwriter, made by world class German technology to ensure smooth flow and good grip. This pen never tires.

    Oh... I have no idea about it. One need to write almost about a month or so to smoothen the nib. But once smooth, the pen is magical. :-)

    Yeah it does a little, but for me speed and flow is important, and that it gives me, so smudging isn't a big problem.
    other pens make my fingers numb. I tried a lot of pens before mains but settled for it, wrote all nine papers with it...
