I like the uniball vision micro but when probing the page sometimes it bleeds trough and leaves dots on the next page

I have tried all sorts of pens, including the kind you mentioned. I use the Z-grip ball point pens... not recommended by some, but I like them. Most viewers I know use the uniball rollerball type.

Major Dames has mentioned here that he likes the Uniball Deluxe Micro pens. Those are ones that I have not tried because I did not like the other uniball ones I tried in the past.

I use and like the : Pilot Precise V5 extra fine.

Warning ! Make sure the cap is on tight. These pens are not washer or dryer safe.

You must also use descent paper to avoid the bleed-through probing dots. Don't use the cheap, generic, multipurpose copy paper if you have a choice.

Also, you want a pen that will not only roll smoothy, but will NOT smear. The Uniball deluxe (micro or fine) is the best non-smearing pen in my experience, but even it will smudge on cheap paper sometimes. But these pens are sometimes harder to locate than Jimmy Hoffa. I've seen them at Walmart and Office Depot (or OfficeMax.. always get the two confused).

Also, I only write on one sheet of paper. I don't have the empty stack underneath. It's off to the side. I can't stand having pen impressions of other words on a blank sheet as I move forward in session.

I use a Pilot G-2 1.0. Nice think line. The ink is runny and takes a bit to dry so you have to watch out for smears. There are probably better pens out there, but it's what I usually use.

I use UniBall Deluxe Micro for regular sessions (the small point comes in handy for detail work when sketching or drawing) and Fine point for HARV and RV GeoFix work. The "fine" point draws a thicker line, and goes through ink much faster, but is a little smoother (though both are very nice to use). I buy them in bulk packs of 12 through Staples.

Also, as Tiger mentioned, the weight of the paper you're using will have a major effect on ink bleed-through.

Pilot G-2 07 .7mm for regular HARV/Geoloc/RVL stuff and Pilot V5 HI-TECPOINT .5mm for regular session work.

The former is great for people who have a heavy impression during ideogram deployment, but the latter is great for intricate Site Templates. A word of caution about the latter, the tip bends quite easily.

The product of choice over here is called Rex Liquid Longliner. Interestingly, this is a hidden product from a good quality brand sold under a cheapo name through the country's largest discounter chain Aldi at €0.99 for a pack of four. What's really inside is a Schneider Xtra Document 0.6 mm Rollerball, which under its own name sells for a lot more.

Post Re: What pen do you guys use?
A pen should satisfy two specific requirements:

1. Be extremely comfortable to hold and write with for 45 minutes straight.
2. Not skip at any angle of use (sketching as well as writing)

In my experience there is no pen that does both perfectly but, there are 2 pens that when combined act as the perfect writing instrument.

1. Bic VelocityGel 0.7 mm (not Bic Velocity) for Comfort
2. Zebra Sarasa 0.7 mm for the ink.

The VelocityGel cradles your fingers making writing all day as pain free as writing for 10 minutes, but the gel ink is substandard which is where the Sarasa congress in. The ink from the Sarasa is interchangeable with the ink for the VelocityGel. As a left handed viewer my penstrokes cause 95% of pens on the narket to be exposed as inferior as I am pushing the pen into the paper from left to right whereas a right handed person smoothly glides along the page without issue.

Using the Sarasa ink inside the VelocityGel solves both problems.

This is as close to perfect as it gets.

ok well Noorbert77, I think after you run that, we'll then have enough corroborating data ideas in what is important to a pen, that as a next step is to produce/market the optimal pen design for rvers.

jk. have a nice day. 8)

That's the one...

However, if you happen to be a big person with big hands, it may not be ideal.

Post Re: What pen do you guys use?
Hands down, for me it's the Zebra Sarasa 0.5, retractable or clip. I order them by the box on amazon.

I journal about 4 tightly-written pages per day. Simply cannot beat the smooth feel, consistent ink-delivery, quick-drying, no puddling or smearing. The only drawback is they're hard to find at typical office retailers, and the refill cartridges are more expensive than new ones, so I've collected quite a few corpses by now. But basically they're a buck each.

Close second would be the uni-ball signo 307.
