For the last few years I have been using Pilot Frixion pens, they use an erasable gel ink. I prefer to use the 0.7mm but in the 0.5mm barrel, as they fit most pen loops better. See this video for an explanation.
I have recently been expanding my use of fountain pens and roller ball pens for general writing and journal writing.
Although my hand writing isn't the neatest on the planet I find a certain satisfaction writing with a reasonable quality fountain pen. I'm not talking expensive ones, more the lower end of the price range. I'm not sure if I would notice the difference myself.
Using a wet ink pen with your organiser can be a bit of a challenge. The combination of the ink and paper can be a bit of a compromise. Finding an ink you like in your pen, and paper that doesn't bleed through or if the paper is coated, finding paper that allows the ink to dry and not then be prone to smudging.
Despite these issues I think it will be a worth while change for me and one I will be trying out different options in the next few weeks.
So what pens do you enjoy using most in your organiser?
