this was a pen that i was planning on reviewing last week, before i had the "awesome" idea to to a "green" week in reviews.
i am so glad that's over.
anyway, the paper mate pro-fit is a basic ballpoint pen, i happen to have used the medium, there is a fine version out there as well. these pens seem to have good reviews on amazon, there are no glaring defects, they are solid, have a contoured profile, the have a comfortable grip and has a retractable tip.
this pen is good for taking notes and sketching, the ink is dark enough to cover pencils, has a good range of values, has a good flow: does not skip or stutter, and has fair glide. unremarkably unremarkable.
the only criticism i have is that the ink does build up on the tip and leaves blotches if you're not careful. that =mess, you are warned.
the online pricing on these pens seem to average around a dollar per pen, and is worth the price, i don't feel strongly one way or the other, i know i didn't buy this one, i think i walked off with one from somewhere.
for the cost of this pen, i would just as soon have five basic bic cristal or round stic.
just saying is all.
