[Pen/Pencil Review] Pentel Flash Multi-Pack Stick Pens

Posted by reudaly on November 27, 2017 in Review, writing instruments |

This is yet another Pentel, I’ve had these for a while. I bought them just before I went off-line late in August through September and am just now getting to them. These are a type of Pentel EnerGel that I don’t normally get – stick pens. But these are the “Flash” collection.

These pens are vibrant. The colors are dark and rich – including the orange, which is difficult. They’re a “medium” point which is a 0.7mm in this line – which makes me very happy. The ink does dry pretty quickly – which is great. The lines are smooth, and the rollerball doesn’t skip or clump. I can tell they work well, because I had them out during a big thing at work and folks kept grabbing them to use – the black one disappeared really fast. If I want the whole 8-pack again, I’m going to have to get another set.

The collection runs 5.75″ long capped and 6.25″ posted. The caps post securelyThese pens have a ribbed grip that gives it some ergonomics. Pentel has done a good attempt to round off all the edges to keep edges from digging into fingers. The octagonal barrels are color matched to the ink with a translucent cap. It’s part of the Recycology line. It’s not refillable.

If you do use these pens on glossier paper, give the ink a bit longer to dry. No gel ink is that fast on slicker paper. But on regular paper, the quick drying is pretty accurate. These are really good, functional pens.

The numbers:
1. How does it work?0.5 It’s decent. No frills. The ink is dark and the roller smooth. It claims to dry really fast and good for left-handed folks.
2. Grip and feel1 – It’s an inexpensive, plastic, no frills pen. It has a grip that’s pretty comfortable. The length and balance are good for what it is.
3. Material1 It’s recycled plastic, but it has a good point and vibrant ink.
4. Overall Design1 -It’s a basic liquid gel ink stick pen. It’s disposable. It is what it is. The colors are bold, and the grip is comfortable.
5. Price Point0.5These eight-packs run between $9 and $12 (depending on where you get them). That’s not bad for a multi-pack, and they’re made from recycled content but a touch expensive for not being refillable. I’ve just seen them in one place, and I can’t remember where.
