Seems a bit strange to most people to review a ballpoint pen, but I've been keeping track of the different pens I've used over the years and thought I had settled on the Uni-ball brand of pens. Especially their JetStream line of pens, but they always had a bit of a scratching feel as you run the tip across the paper. The OfficeDepot pen however seems to glide effortlessly across the page. They are also pretty cheap at less than $5 for a pack of 36. I would say the only drawback is the thinness of the pen itself. It needs a chunkier body with a grip to make writing comfortable.
