Stabilo pointVisco Gel Rollerball Pen Review5 January 2015
The Stabilo pointVisco is a gel ink rollerball available with ten different ink colours and one line width (fine). It costs around £1.35 in the UK.
Stabilo describe this pen as a “Rollerball with a completely new gel formula” and I have no idea what makes it new or special but, regardless, it is a good pen with good ink. The blue of this pen is pleasing to my eye and the ink dries quickly. It seems to be quite waterproof. The line is consistent and free of gunkiness. The tip glides over the paper. It’s a lovely pen to write with.
I love the design of this pen. It’s instantly recognisable as a Stabilo pen. It has a distinctive, slightly retro, charm whilst still maintaining a professional dignity. The cap posts securely and the pen is light enough to feel balanced capped or uncapped, even though it’s quite long. The clip is a little weak. There is a soft grip area that’s comfortable to hold.
This is one of my favourite pens. Whether it’s a rollerball or a gel pen, it looks fantastic, feels comfortable in the hand and puts down a great line.
