orange, red, pink, purple, blue, light blue, light green and black rollerball pens with ballpoint ink. A pretty decent selection, right? Especially for ballpoint pens, which are often limited to black, blue, and reds.
The body is lightweight, plastic, thin, and comfortable. The cap posts and caps well and gives the pen the perfect length for writing. There is also a rubbery grip section that is flush with the barrel. It's a firm grip though so it's just there to give you something to hold on to - not to be squishy and coddle your fingers!
But I must say, usually a really comfortable grip is required on a pen that doesn't write all that well because you have to grip it hard and press hard on the paper to get the ink to flow. That is not the case here! The tip is so broad and the ink is so utterly smooth that you barely need to even touch the pen to the page to write. They just glides so well and consistently that it's a pleasure to write with. Even with the generous ink flow and wide tip, the ink dries pretty quickly.

I very much enjoy writing with the Stride Schneider XB Slider pens - they're inky and smooth, comfortable, and come in a pleasant array of colors. They're not expensive and are pretty easy to find now - at OfficeMax and Office Depot. These pens are really perfect for journaling, note taking, doodling, and editing. Oh, and another cool thing is Stride is a woman-owned business!
