I am in search of an everyday pen that I can just whip out and not worry too much if I lose it. And I'm not looking for a FP. I've tried the sharpie pen, and while it's cool, it doesn't write on everything that well. So, I'm leaning towards a rollerball or gel pen. Probably a roller ball.

Suggestions? Budget is $5-25.

My vote: Uni-ball Signo 207; bulk pack from Costco. Writes well, rollerball, inexpensive and clicks closed.

The Pilot G2 limited edition. Staples has them. Great anodized colors! I have two of them in purple.

They make LE rollerballs?

I wonder if they have a forum and argue about stuff too...you know: Storing pens in a desk or mug, what happens if your pen goes through the washing machine and the big one....blue or black ink

I like the Bic Velocity gel an awful lot. It's by far the easiest rolling pen that I've ever used. If you've placed an order with me you've seen how they write. They come in 2 ball sizes, but I prefer the 0.7 size, there is also a larger one. I also use them for the carbon copy custom forms and they allow pressure enough for the bottom form to be written to. I get them from Staples, but I don't remember what they cost, not expensive.

They make special edition Fusion razor handles (Fusion Power Gamer, Fusion Proglide McLaren Mercedes, Fusion Power Olympics Special Edition, Mach 3 Limited Edition Brazil Football Team Razor , and what seems like dozens of more), so why not LE rollerballs or special edition plastic utensils? Add fancier packaging and the result is something that costs a little more to make, but sells for a lot more.

Although they are still widely sold, the gel pen craze ended with the 1990s.

The Uni-Ball Vision rollerballs always worked well for me, better than most other rollerballs. Uni-Ball makes gel pens, too, and the one I used worked great.

Turns out I do use a Pilot G-2 07 at work. I'm about the only one who does and have them order them for me. Cool

Now I need to ask about LE and see if they 'll order me some funky ones.

It is indeed a glorious pen for the measly $12.

Here are the pens I use at work, in case it helps:

$1.09 each

and the fancier version:

$1.74 each

Very smooth writing and the vendor claims the ink is "check safe". Best non-fountain pens I have ever used.
