Hello, I'm Ten, the manager of Ten's Job Tools Store.
Today, I compared gel ballpoint pens in terms of quick drying.
We often receive inquiries from left-handed people, students, and people who often do illustrations or handwriting at work, asking, ``Are there any pens that don't rub?''
I tried it with a water-based gel ballpoint pen that is only available at Tokyu Hands stores!
I'm glad if you can use it as a reference.
These 9 were tested
*Energel's Clena was misspelled🙇♂️
Energel has a different body, but I didn't know if the ink was the same, so I'm trying 3 types.
- Pentel ENERGEL 0.5mm
- Pentel ENERGEL infree 0.5mm
- Pentel ENERGEL clena 0.5mm
- ZEBRA SARASA 0.5mm
- ZEBRA SARASA dry 0.5mm
- PILOT Juice up 0.5mm
- PILOT V CORN 0.5mm
- Uniball SigNo 0.38mm
- Nitoms STALOGY 0.5mm
This time, we will verify two patterns.
The first one was based on the assumption that a right-handed person would use it, and in order to verify how quickly it dries after writing, we tried rubbing it 3 seconds after writing.
The second pattern was based on the assumption that a left-handed person would use the product, and to test how well it would not rub while writing, I tried rubbing it immediately after writing.
Please feel free to use it as a reference depending on your own situation.
I wrote it and rubbed it 3 seconds later.
None of the pens stretched out at all, so they were all excellent!
If I were to say strong, I would say that SARASA 0.5mm and SigNo 0.38mm were slightly longer when I looked at them with the naked eye.
Even gel ink ballpoint pens have different writing comforts, so try them out and find your favorite.
I rubbed it immediately after writing it.
While most pens stretch, SARASA dry 0.5mm hardly stretches! As you write, you can feel the ink soaking into the paper, giving it a writing feel similar to Mackie.
I'm introducing it in a video on YouTube, so if you're interested, check it out.
