True Writer Select Rollerball
Lovely pen in so many respects
I was raised on Esterbrook pens so that the True Writer was modeled after them was the first thing that caught my attention. I love the Mediterranean Blue color - never seen another pen with such a pleasing visual appearance. The quality of the pen is of course great as Levenger wouldn't sell anything less. It Is very nicely weighted and balanced as well.
My only suggestion would be to change the screw on top to a magnetized snap on one.

Great quality gift well received
My brilliant nephew-writer calls it his " dedicated pen". Gave it as a Christmas present. Fabulous design and quality.

Great balance and feel.
You don't need an eye loupe to see that the personalized engraving is of fair quality. The treads on the pen cap are not quite lined up, if you tighten the cap just a little too much it "threads out" and twists all the way around instead of getting tight. This was a surprise because the other two Levenger pens that I own the threads are of exquisite workmanship. These two flaws don't effect the performance of the pen and don't undermine the overall cost value of the pen. The pen is an incredible writing experience. With the cap on the back, which fits very snugly the pen offers almost perfect balance and comfort. Pairing this pen with fiber-tip refill produces the smoothest line I have ever written with.

Gift Well Received
This was purchased as a gift and I must say it was well-received, Beautiful, large pen, (bought in Macchiato color with initials), elegantly packaged, writes smoothly, and had a solid feel in your hand. More than pleased with the response.

My favorite pen
I really like the True Writer line of rollerballs, but the Select definitely takes the cake. Slightly larger, and slightly heavier, for a nice solid feel in the hand.
I just wish that the cap fit on the back end when I'm writing, and that it came in more colors.

This new pen is fantastic. I have been using True Writers for a long time and they are great. But this new Select version (I got the rollerball), is really special. I think the best thing about it is the weight. It has a weight and solidity to it that feels good in your hand, is perfectly balanced with the cap on the end and writes very smoothly. And I'm left handed so that's saying something. I highly recommend this pen!

Better Than I Expected
This is my first True Writer Select and I wasn't sure if it would actually be more "high end" or not. Well, the barrel and cap are swirled in a fantastically deep and intricate Mediterranean finish that truly captures the eye. It is the kind of pen that while you are thinking what to write you can sort of gaze into its depths. The clip and band are mirror-finished without the slightest blemishing. It is a very comfortable pen to hold and the rollerball refill is smooth and puts down the proper quantity of ink. Oh, and personalization was fun. I wanted my Ham Radio call sign (Google it) and I needed a number 2 with some capital letters. I wondered if they could do Arabic numerals as well as letters and, yep, came through 100% and looks great on my desk. May buy a different odor sometime in the future.

I am not one who normally praises non-fountain pens, but I will here. I am really enjoying this pen in Macchiato with a fiber tip refill. It is a really big pen...like Montblanc 149 size. It is comfortable to hold and write with for long periods of time. I am much happier with this Levenger pen than the last one I bought.

True Writer Select best Levenger series to date
I have enjoyed many Levenger products and pens, and have about a dozen of the standard True Writers, in various colors and writing modes. I bought the True Writer Select during a promotion, in part because I had a hard time justifying the expense without understanding more about the product. Let me just say, this is one fabulous pen. I picked up the rollerball in macchiato. The color is stunning. The weight is comfortable, even for a petite female. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another and expect that before too long, I will complete sets in both Mediterranean and Macchiato. Do yourself a favor and add one to your collection or offer it as a special gift. Be assured that the staff at Levenger will take care of you if you are not happy. I expect you will be pleased.
