    Following on from the 'favourite type of pen' thread:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Staedtler-tr...965463&sr=1-11

    If you've tried them, would you say they're any good?

    If you haven't tried them, feel free to post your favourite pen or whatnot.

    PS. I have a pen fetish obviously

    I have the full set and absolutely love them! Had the same lot since I was in year 8 or 9, now in my first year of uni after a gap year, they've lasted forever!

    Some of mine now need replacing though, I recently learnt that you can't write pages and pages with them really quickly if you have a heavy hand, after all this time ruined 3 in the course of one exam :cry2: my ultimate favourite for notes and diagrams, but you might want a fountain pen or biro for anything more substantial :yes:

    i can't write in fineliners very neatly so it doesn't work for me, good pens though.
    i like uniball fusion pens (they are very awesome ball points), and i currently use a bic quick click (ink cartridge) ball point (love it so much and it can never run out )

    what ever you do dont get berol handwriting pens i spent 4 years of primary school using them and it killed my chances of decent handwriting.

    Ah right so they'd be good for writing out Higher course notes then to revise? Or A Levels in other words... Depending on where you live

    Also, do they 'bleed' through paper? I ABSOLUTELY hate that... And smudging... are they bad in those terms?

    Definitely :yep: perfect for that

    I use good quality 90 or 100gsm paper (the posh optik kind because I'm picky :giggle:) because my alternative pen is a fountain pen and I also hate bleeding, so not sure what they're like on normal paper I'm afraid, using that paper though they've never bled through, but neither does anything else to be fair :p: mine have never smudged except once when I had really plasticy paper, but that's to be expected really
