    Really? Well, who knows. I do wish you luck on your endeavor in finding a reliable maker or brand to refill your ballpoint pen.

    I was using it. I write pretty much everywhere I go. Haven't had a problem except with that one pen.

    Oh, did you have the nib pointing up? While it is not recommended to take pens on an airplane, it is advised to have the nib pointing up. I only heard of Zebra and was looking to try them out, and the only other brand I know is Bic.

    The problem will roller pens is the ink is water based. I took one on a plane and the air pressure forced the ink out the nib and it pretty much broke the pen. I know you can refill ball points, but not from a container. I think you buy a pen insert. Would you happen to know any reliable makers or brands? I like Zebra, for my regular stuff.

    Oh snap! I did it again! I got roller pens and ballpoint pens confused! Ballpoint pens are alright. They don't write like roller and fountain pens do. Roller ball pens write like fountain pens but don't have the pros of the fountain pen, I believe. Most ballpoint pens I know are all disposable, but I think rollerpens are the refillable ones.

    I'm thinking brands and such in part. I looked up the difference between ball point and rollerball and there is a difference in the nib design and ink base. I go through enough pens that I think it might be worth it to get a refillable ball point. I feel a little bad about all the pens that I throw away, though I discovered now that some places can recycle them.

    My knowledge of ball point pens is a little less than my knowledge of fountain pens; although, my knowledge in fountain pens is not much. Ballpoint pens are the pens you would use if you want ink like a fountain pen but not wanting to the drawbacks of fountain pens, I believe.

    Hey Boris! Does your pen knowledge translate over to ballpoints or is it mostly fountain?
