Paper Mate� Profile? Retractable Ballpoint Pens, 1.4 mm, Bold Point, Assorted Translucent Barrel, Assorted Ink Colors, Pack Of 8
You get what you pay for ...
The Paper Mate Profile Colored Retractable Ballpoint Pens (1.4 mm bold point), are pretty much worthless to me. The ink tends to clot and the writing is sporadic. The pen does not feel good in the hand. If you are enticed by the low price, I recommend going with the smaller point (0.7 mm) as it might work better. I'm donating my pack to the kids next door.

Such a GREAT Ball point
Ballpoints are so much neater than Gel ink pens. This pen is so comfortable for me because the Perfect Curve in the Grip at the bottom of the pen. It's Perfect!
I use this pen for Journal writing and school work, which requires writing on multiple pages in a notebook. A ball point is best for this because the ink isn't wet and doesn't smear!
This pen was such a great discovery for me. However, the point is a little thicker than I would like. At 1.4 mm, it's FAT. Back in 2010, a review was added here, and the writer didn't like the thinner points. It's interesting that thin points are no longer available. Personally, I would like the choice of a thinner point to produce neater cursive penmanship. (Yes, some people over the age of 25 really do write in cursive.)

Best ballpoint pens EVER!
I actually found this pen by luck at my work when someone left it in our lobby. After no one claimed it, I kept it and I absolutely fell in LOVE with it! The grip is SO comfortable and it writes so unbelievably smooth and neat. i just love my handwriting whenever I use this. I only had the dark blue one I found which lasted fairly long but obviously won't last forever because I use it everyday. I HAD to buy the variety pack. I hope they NEVER stop making this pen!! It's awesome!
