I recently received a package of Bic products to try and review from Brand Power. If you are not already a member of this great site take a moment to join at http://www.brandpower.ca/ you can add little reviews for new products you try and every once in a while they have promotions to try new products that they will send you for your honest opinion on them. I received:
- Bic Velocity Bold ball pen Bold 1.6mm in black
- Bic Tech Stylus and pen 2’n1 Medium 1.0 mm in black
- Bic Matic RT Mechanical Pencil with lead and eraser refills Fine 0.5mm HB #2
- Bic Atlantis ball pen Medium 1.0 mm in blue
- Bic bright liner Highlighter Tape that erases easily 1/5in x 22 ft in Yellow
First thing I did was take each product and write a little to get a feel for how they write, what the ink was like, and just using the product.
Bic Atlantis ball pen Medium 1.0 mm in blue
I liked the ink in this pen, it was very smooth to write with, and I like medium ink. I liked the color of the blue.
I liked that it was a click pen rather then a pen with a cover.
I liked the grip.
Over all I would give this pen a 8.5 out of 10 and would probably buy it in the NEAR future.
Great Job Bic!
Bic Velocity Bold ball pen Bold 1.6mm in black
This pen really had me torn.
I loved the grip and the fact that it was a click pen.
I absolutely loved how smooth the ink was when I was writing, it was like my pen was skating across the page.
I loved how thick the ink was, bold ink is by far my favorite to write with.
BUT, and this is a big one for me
The ink ran in places, coming out thick and sorta smudged. This for me was a big no. I would not purchase this pen because of that. I usually toss pens once they start to give out too much ink.
Again I love love love the bold, and how smooth the ink is, but I would not purchase it unless Bic changed the leaking issue.
Because of the ink issue I would give this pen a 4 out of 10.
Bic Tech Stylus and pen 2’n1 Medium 1.0 mm in black
I really liked this pen, it was my favorite pen out of the ones I was lucky enough to review.
Again it was a click pen, which is a must when I purchase pens, I hardly ever purchase pens with covers.
I liked the ink, it was smooth.
I liked the design of the pen as well, and the metallic color of the pen.
It was a comfortable pen to write with not too large and not too small so it fit very nicely in my hand and just felt good to write with.
The added Stylus at the top was a nice added bonus.
I took a few moments to try the stylus out on my phone.
It worked really well, actually better then I expected it too, one touch and it opened pages and did what I needed it to do.
I would recommend this product.
Over all I would give it a 9 out of 10.
Bic Matic RT Mechanical Pencil with lead and eraser refills Fine 0.5mm HB #2
I absolutely love this pencil!
I am mostly a pen person, but this pencil was great.
I loved that it came with refills for the leads.
I loved that it came with refills for the eraser.
The grip was great and it was a nice pencil to write with.
My favorite thing about this pencil?
Definitely the easy-retract technology. With the quick click you can protect the lead and the head of the pencil.
I would definitely recommend this!
I give this a 10 out of 10
Great product Bic!!
Bic bright liner Highlighter Tape that erases easily 1/5in x 22 ft in Yellow
This was the last product I tested.
To be completely honest I was not sure about this product. I love highlighters. I use them daily. I am a bit of a highlighter snob and like the ink to be just right.
This product works great. It dispenses the color very evenly and very smooth. I liked how easy it was to use.
I loved how there was no drying time.
I also found it great that it was able to be erased.
Having a highlighter that I can erase is amazing.
I think I just found the king of highlighters, and will definitely purchase this product in the future, the very very near future!!
I give this product a 10 out of 10.
Great new innovative product Bic!
I Loved the products, the only problem I had was with the Bic Velocity and the ink leaking, I loved everything else about that product. Bic is by far a leading company in stationary products and I will continue to purchase from them, and am excited about their new products!!
