What really is the difference between a fountain pen and a gel pen?
Did you take a look here already?
Anyway, I find writing with a fountain pen more comfortable than with a gel pen, and it doesn't destroy the hand writing that much, if you have one to begin with.
Strangely I always had to use fountain pens with nibs for lefties, as the ones for right hand writing were hard to work with. I guess, that is the advantage of the gel pen, to be ambidextrous, though there a nibs for both hands too.
Of course, but how do they write differently, I am looking for personal opinion.
I use G2s and love them, although a good fountain pen will write very smoothly and easily. Cheap fountain pens are messy and scratchy.
Fountain pens use a nib. Gel pens are typically ball-point.
I'm left-handed so they're both useless.
Not even with the right nibs?
What do you use for handwritten documents then?
Wait, really? Why?
So am I but I used to use both.
Eventually I prefer gel pens though cause they don't blur but my current one just dried out.
Because left handed people are evil and broken people. They should be shunned.
No I know that, but why can't they use pens?
No. Their fundamental evil prevents them from properly using such devices. The only thing left handed people are good for is playing pitcher in baseball.
Because rdowns made a promise back in 2004 to not agree with anything anyone on these forums says aside from a few members.
Ink smears as you write when your hand rubs over it.
This. A fountain pen especially. I can do a gel pen but depends on the pen.
Ball points work best for lefties.
Whats a handwritten document? Oh wait those things I did back in high school before I got a computer
Bring back the ink-well.
Pre-pubescent boys DEMAND it.
Lefties get all the chicks.
If that were true I wouldn't be single
And while you are at it, bring back the canes and the birch.
Yep, I have no problem with that either.
I've used a wide variety of writing and drawing instruments.
I find that fountain pens kind of scratch the paper at certain angles as you write.
I absolutely love the Pentel EnerGel 0.7 mm gel pen. I've been using it exclusively for 10 years for any handwriting.
My 10 month old girl is showing left handed tendencies. I'm ambidextrouse but generally prefer to write with my left hand.
I hated smearing ink as a kid and freaking having to crook my arm when writing in spiral notebooks.
I don't want her to suffer the Mae way I did. Hah!
I had issues in 3rd grade with spiral notebooks. My teacher bought me a new spiral notebook and told me to use it from the back cover to the front. I do that to this day.
