I am a pen freak! But only a pen that is 1) Micro 0.5mm or less 2) Rollerball or similar and 3) has a rubberized grip is good enough for me. And when I find a favorite pen then you better not touch, move or snatch it. So it was with great surprise that when my favorite extra fine vball was missing from my desk I was forced to use a retractable pen. I expected it to be a cheap ballpoint pen but what I found was a retractable gel pen from my favorite company - Uniball. It writes smoothly, comes in eight colors including purple (my favorite color) and I won't ever lose the cap since it doesn't have one! Pens with missing caps is a HUGE annoyance. Suddenly I have a new favorite pen and I plan on buying several more before they decide to change it. Unfortunately, just one day after purchasing the two pack I left one of the pens on a shopping cart. I only hope that the shopper who found it falls it love with it as much as I did. It also says that it prevents check froud but since I rarely write checks I guess I won't get to put that to the test. This is one great pen - but don't plan on borrowing mine.
