Review: TUL Needle Point 0.5mm Gel

TULPen Addict reader Marilyn first turned me on to the TUL line from Office Max last summer, and I was very impressed that a store brand could be that nice.  Since I don't have an Office Max in my area, I haven't really kept up with the TUL line, but I popped into an Office Max on a recent trip to Florida and found that there is a needle tip version of the same pen.  SOLD!

I grabbed four pack of those, a four pack of the Uni-Ball Signo 207 needle tip, plus the wife went with a four pack of the standard tip 0.7mm blue TUL pens, and a 10-pack of the Zebra pencils similar to what was recently reviewed at Unposted.  That was a pretty good haul for us, and I think the TUL 0.5mm needle tip may be the star of the show.  It writes so smoothly, and the ink is pitch black and quick drying.  I have used this pen several times a week since getting them, and I see no reason to stop.  The only thing I have found that I don't like about the TUL is the grip, which I also mentioned in the first review.  Luckily, I was playing around the other night and found that it slides into the Pilot G-2 barrel perfectly.  Problem solved!
