uni-ball� Vision? Liquid Ink Retractable Rollerball Pens, 0.8 mm, Bold Point, Silver Barrels, Purple Ink, Pack Of 12
Not Up To The Uni-Ball Standard
The first pen out of the box was Fantastic - very smooth writing, and a great hue of purple. Then I was away on a project for about 10 days. After returning to the office, I reached for my new favorite pen and was confused. This couldn't be the same pen - it wrote very scratchy and skippy and seemed to have dried out. So I take the second one out of the box...and it was as bad as the first had become. These pens are a hit and a miss - nowhere near the consistent quality of other Uni-Ball pens. AVOID. Sadly, a very disappointing product.

Uni-Ball Vision RT 8mm Purple
I am an admirer of Uni-Ball Vision products including the Elite version. This pen though was not up to standards as the ink flow was scratchy and the saturation one expects of Uni-Ball was not there, the purple was a light color and shade. I've used the blue and black in this family and they're dark saturated colors as are the Vision Elite new black fusion series and the regular black and blue/black and blue and the assorted colors they sell in the 8 pack which are all also 8MM or come in that size. These are not inexpensive pens at $2.50 each either. I was advised by Sanford back in August when I couldn't find this color that the purple was discontinued, then I noticed them on the OD web site and figured okay they're available. Perhaps these were acquired as a closeout item and are a bit aged and accordingly, dried out some.
