  • pentel energel 0.7mm ball vs Rorito Jottek feathersoft
    which one is better

    I really like pentel energel, it's very smooth but its not waterproof :(

    Don't have much experience of Jottek.
  • I guess energel is probably the best gel pen..why worry about waterproof thing, even V7 is not waterproof, still many use it.
  • itne mehnge pen ?
    a 5-10 rupee gel pen is as good as the costlier counterparts

    Actually few refills & even new pen just go dry... Thin n fading .... Tried gel pens but gel pens r let down in terms of speed spcly in last hour ( for me personally) . Ny butter flow users pls throw some light.

    Or any better ball pen/alternative wid in the similar domain of butter flow quality(smoothness, visibility, no bloating etc) available!? Tried a few but didn't match butter flow std.

    Thanks in advance!

    P.s: yeah, I know I am a butter flow lover! But lately relationship going sour, as the pen is being unpredictable/unfaithful ;)
  • Try Linc Signetta... Using it since a few days, hasn't disappointed yet.

    Keep a set of refills , I see there is like 2/5 refills going bad , but I'm yet to find another alternative which has advantage like thin grip, nice buttery flow and no blot.. even roller pens of uniball blot !

    I wrote last year mains with writo meter black ball pen.
    I want to write this year with pilot v7 but I am afraid of papaer quality.
    Last year essay gs1 gs3 and optional 1 had good quality paper and gs2 gs4 and optional 2 had low quality comparatively.
    If anybody has written last year with v7 kindly share ur experience

    Not being superstitious, but I know seven people who used that thick write o meter in Mains and have secured under 100 rank.

    Take your call wisely (wink)


    (My job is done :P :P)
    That is superstitious. Let the guy use the pen he wants to. :joy: :joy:
    was having a bad day studying ppr 2..
    neywan sir u really made me laugh..

  • Thick blue, very smooth flow, blunt yet pointy enough:cello jet max gold. Uses lp 8000 refill. It's very good.
  • Hi,

    I have a small doubt ,please address it.

    can use Achiever gel pen in exam ? I am very comfortable with this pen but the problem with this is when water sprinkles on it ,words get erased .

    Please do clarify .
    Thank you.
