It has been a while since I updated my Top 5 pens list. The list is always in a state of flux, but it gives you a good idea of what pens I have been using the most of late.
The current list is:
4. Sharpie Pen
The Pentel Slicci had been my #1 for all of last year, but the Uni-Ball Signo DX has won me over for now. I love the brightness of the new colors, and the regular sized barrel diameter does make a difference over time when compared to the Slicci's thinner barrel. I think the Slicci has a sharper line by a hair, but I find myself reaching for the Uni-Ball Signo DX first more times than not.
The Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto is a great product. You can mix and match colors, barrels, and line widths to your hearts content, and I am doing my best to try them all. The Coleto is far superior to the regular Hi-Tec-C single cartridge pen, mainly for consistencies sake. Too many stops and starts on the regular Hi-Tec-C give me fits when I'm jotting down notes.
When I need a break from one of my steel tipped gel ink pens, I usually grab the plastic tipped Sharpie Pen. It is really smooth, and always fun to write or doodle with. The newer colors of the Uni-Ball Signo RT have brought me back to this pen more frequently of late. Lavender/Black is the best - I'll have to do a review of it soon.
I'll try to do a better job this year in keeping this list up to date
