Pilot ® Retractable, Gel, Rollerball Pen

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:16 THUMBS UP FROM OSAGE COUNTY FIRST GRADE

Cons:none noted

The Bottom Line: Retractable gel ink rolling ball design means: no lost caps.  Clear barrel allows sight recognition of ink supply, pens write first stroke, even when not used for a while.


Pilot ® Retractable, Gel, Rollerball Pen featuring a clear barrel and purple ink is an Osage County First Grade favorite. 

Now and again we get out -the pens- said in a hushed and reverence filled voice.  Using -the pens- is a big deal when you are 6 years old.

Osage County First Grade does seat work using their big fat pencils during a time period at the end of the instruction portion of the lesson.  Later we reassemble on the rug to do some checking to see how we did.  I do not send children to work, hand in, slash and rip with red pencil and return.  I do send children to work, check and note what they did well, and what they need to give more attention.

I have found after many years teaching that Little Learners and Bigger Ones too for that matter give little more than a passing glance at a red streaked page.  They give much more attention to checking their own work, noting what they did correctly and what they did not.

-the pens- are set out, purple is one of the most prized colors, we all like it.  And then we begin checking.  Most times Little Learners will trace their correct answers giving a double shot at the right answer, and opportunity for correcting the one which was not.  We like rainbow papers. 

Pens are passed right hand to the left using a cross over motion, which is to strengthen right brain - left brain development.

Pilot claims to be America's #1 Selling Gel Pen and perhaps they are, I will grant you Pilot generates one dandy pen suitable for use by children and adults alike.

I like the retractable gel ink rolling ball design, we do not have caps to lose.  Clear barrel allows sight recognition of ink supply, pens begin to write with the first stroke, even when they have not been used for a while.  Line scribed is even, smooth, no blobs or smeary smudges. Ink supply lasts a long time. 

Adults will find the acid-free, archival safe gel ink excellent for check writing, genealogy work and daily writing.  Little Learners enjoy smudge free pages.   Pilot's gel ink providing smooth skip free scribing is water-resistant, fade-proof and does not smear, nice for adults and Little Learners alike.  

I particularly like the curved, soft cushiony, latex free, rubber grip is especially comfortable for my arthritic hands, as well as is easy for Little Learners to hold.  Adults having large or small hands will find the grip tends to lend itself well to all writing grasp techniques to provide a comfy grip for writing comfort.   

I am especially fond of fine point pens, however Pilot does make medium and fine point to suit more needs and preferences.  While Osage County First Grade leans toward purple as special; Pilot also offers red, green, blue and black. 

Happy to recommend Pilot® Retractable Rollerball Pen
