About Paper Mate Flair Felt Tip Pens

PaperMate Flair Felt Tip Pens are something I see people rave about and I feel like I’m missing the secret genetic code to fall in love with them. They frustrate me because they write so slowly and I feel like I’m fighting with the pen to get ink on my paper.

Am I broken?
I’m going to say on record that this might be a *me* issue and not a Flair pen issue. I write fairly aggressively and I think that might be part of the issue. They make a really scritchy scratchy sound that bothers me and I feel like they bleed through my paper too often.

Should you try them?
They are loved by many people, extremely accessible, and not very expensive. They come in lots of colors. You have nothing to lose by trying them. And if you hate them, I’m sure a friend would be happy to have them!
