Pilot Pen review via Shoplet.com

I have a new review from Shoplet.com. This time it is for Pilot brand pens. Shoplet is the leading e-tailor for office supplies. They have a large selection for pretty much everything you could possibly need for your home or business office. I have four types of pens from them.

I received the Acroball Pro Advanced Ink Pens, Acroball PureWhite Advanced Ink Pens, Acroball Colors Advanced Ink Pens, and a Dr. Grip Frosted Pen. This last pen is brand new and has barely even been added to their website just yet. So here’s a preview into what you can expect!
I can see why its call the Acroball Pro pen. It has a sleek design with the color scheme and metal accents that make it look professional. It’s a medium 1.0mm with hybrid ink. Hybrid ink combines the vibrancy of gel ink with quick-drying ball point ink to make your writing smoother. I love the fact that it has comfort grips. I now work in an office. So keeping my fingers comfortable is my goal. Whether I’m typing or writing, I need to be able to do so for long periods of time. It fits comfortably in my hands and the writing comes out fluidly. It dries quickly. No blowing on my papers before moving on!

The next one I have to show you is the Acroball PureWhite pens. These are what they say, a pure white color with colored grips. It’s a clean look. It also has the hybrid ink and comes as a fine .07mm. This design is more of a fashionable approach. Writing with this one provides a sleeker look. I’m also happy that it has the grips.

The Acroball Colors are colorful pens. They come just like the Pro and PureWhite, with the grips and hybrid ink. They are closer to the Pro, however, with the medium 1.0mm tip.

Lastly, I have the brand new, not even up fully on the site yet, Dr.Grip Frosted pen! Beautiful color! I’m a fan of a nice looking pen, so this light frosted blue is right up my alley. It’s a medium 1.0mm ball point pen. The advanced ink is supposed to be smear-resistant. So if you are constantly writing like me, you know that you don’t want to be stopped by ink that smears as you go. Everything needs to be kept neat and tidy. This retractable pen is also refillable. So even after you use it up, save it and get the refills. Less trash and more use of something you will love. It is also endorsed by the Arthritis Foundation for its ease of use. Arthritic hands need that extra boost of help sometimes.  The grip almost feels like it is full of gel but it isn’t. The frosted feel of the pen makes the whole thing comfortable to use. I really LOVE this pen!

Pilot has many other types of pens that you could find useful to have. Whether you need erasable inks, or my favorite – B2P aka Bottle to Pen. B2P pens are recycled from plastic bottles and made into really cool pens. Not only are they making something that everyone has a use for, but they are cutting down pollution in plastic bottle forms. Reduce, reuse and recycle! Something my kids remind me often. There are gel ink pens, advanced ink pens, rolling ball or ball point pens. They even have 2 designs with the Go Pink theme to show your support of Breast Cancer. The Dr. Grip will be one of those! If you want to check out more Pilot products, just click the link.

  1. Wow you have alot of pens! Looks like dr. Grip looks like a nice one! I love what you wrote :)

  2. My favorite is still the Schnider pens made in Germany. I got some from shoplet and they are so great. Too bad everyone agrees with me. They keep taking them. I am down to 2 and I have to watch them like a hawk!

    1. They are my favorites as well! Really well made. And very balanced for constant writing.
