    Good pens for exams

    Hey guys,
    What pens do you use that are real smooth and don't make your writing even worse than it already is when you're speed writing. XD I'm been using Pilot BP.S Fine but i'd like to try other options. I normally use fine 0.5-07. Thanks

    Re: Good pens for exams

    Uni Jetstream 101 is the best imo, but they run out fairly quickly so every assessment period I have to stock up on them hahhaha

    I use Jetstreams by uniball as well. Little bit costly at officeworks but they are incredibly smooth and comfortable to write with. They do run out of ink fairly quickly. Best to replenish your pens before exams, my black one ran out on me during a Bio Half Yearly. Luckily I had a spare

    Not the kilometrico ones though. But the inkjoy ones are good.

    Re: Good pens for exams

    Pilot Juice 0.5 for the people who like gel ink pens with a bit of friction.

    I find jetstreams a bit too smooth for me and I can't seem to keep up with the speed so I tend to find gel ink pens that are a little less smooth

    Also for people who like using the standard Muji 0.38 with the clear tube and cap, there is a pen called Uniball Signo RT 0.38 which is EXACTLY the same as the Muji pen (ink shade and thickness and everything)
    Its plus side to it is that it's a clicky pen with a grip
    That way, it doesn't hurt your hand after you write for a long time and you don't have to bother taking and putting on the cap every time you use it.

    It also doesn't bleed, which I find that Muji pens tend to do after leaving them out of the cap for a while.

    Re: Good pens for exams

    Will second (third?) the Uni Jetstream, but honestly, the BIC Economy pens that I ended up using most frequently cost 50 cents for a pack of 12 in the bargain bin at Officeworks. As long as the inkflow doesn't skip, you should be fine with anything.
