Uniball Vision Elite BLX – Colors infused with Black Ink
The brand new Uniball Vision Elite BLX pens may not immediately jump out as being anything different, but you should probably take a closer look. These look just like the standard Uniball Vision Elite pens, right? Take a closer look, because instead of the standard colors each has black ink mixed with a regular color.
I was a bit surprised when I looked back at the history of the site to see that I’ve never reviewed the basic Uniball Vision Elite pens before. Having used them a bunch, I can tell you that they are a solid performing pen.
The key features of Uniball Vision Elite BLX pens are as follows:
- The airplane Safe- ink will not explode or leak due to a change in cabin pressure during flights.
- THe Uni-flow ink system regulates a steady flow of waterproof ink to the point for consistent smoothness and color intensity down to the last drop of ink.
- Features uni Super Ink specially-formulated to become trapped in paper. This helps to prevent criminal check washing and other document alteration.
The above features should be enough to make you consider keeping a few Uniball Vision Elite BLX pens on hand. For travelers the Ubiball Visione Elite BLX is an even more appealing option based on those features.
The beauty of the Uniball Vision Elite BLX pens is that they have some standard colors like blue, green, brown, purple, and red that all have an infusion of black ink. This makes for some unique shades of ink that are hard to come by outside of the world of fountain an imported pens.
The key thing about the Uniball Vision Elite BLX is the writing sample that you see above. These are some really unique colors that you get which includes black mixed with red, purple, green, blue, and brown. Because of the difference between a fountain pen nib and the tip of a roller ball pen, you don’t necessarily get the same degree of shading as you would with a fountain pen nib that flexes. There is definitely some variation in shade that you get when using these pens though.
I think these colors are great and bring new life into what has become a limited set of options in the world of US only pens. With the usual US release of pens our color choices are limited to about 4 colors so this is a great change. I hope this is a trend to give writers some more variety with their writing implements of choice. The color palette is definitely what I’d consider business friendly. I don’t think anybody is going to look at you as if you were scrawling notes with a bright pink hello kitty pen when using these.
Head on over to Amazon and check out the Uniball Vision Elite BLX if you want to add a classy splash of color to your usual array of pens.
