Uni-ball Impact 1.0mm RT Gel Pen

My usual pen-of-choice is the Zebra Sarasa 1.0mm gel pen. I'm not sure if they have been discontinued, or whether Staples have stopped stocking them, but they were absent from the rack the last time I visited the aforementioned emporium.

Decided to try the Uni-ball equivalent, and I am very pleased with it. The pen feels good in my hand, with more 'heft' than the Zebra, and the nib writes smoothly with good ink flow.

Price: £2.66 for a pack of two.


  1. Love your handwriting.

    I hate retractables but I love a pen with 1.0. I am not a fan of the micro nibs.

  2. thanks for the comment 'newwaytowrite'... my preference is for fountain pens, but until someone makes one that never leaks, broad-nibbed gel pens are going to have to suffice :-)
