This pen is very nice. The stylus works beautifully, the styling of the pen is clean and uncluttered, and the weight is good for writing. I like the texture of the gripping surface, which ensures control and precision. I use my pen for everything from letter writing to making quick notes and design drawings, and it performs these tasks well.

I have only two criticisms. The barrel is a touch too wide. I have not found it to be uncomfortable, just less than perfect. I believe it could be slimmed down a bit and still fit the same refills. My other criticism is that with the cap on the back of the pen it is too top heavy to be comfortable and balanced in the hand. I don't find either of these to be a deal-breaker by any means, and still enjoy the pen a lot.

I had the Levenger ballpoint version of this pen and was pretty happy with it. But within 2 weeks of pretty light use of the stylus on my touch screen computer, the rubber on the stylus tip cracked. At that time, replacement stylus tips weren't availabel in the black, so I returned the pen. When I saw that Levenger now offered replacement tips in black, I ordered the rollerball with extra tips. I was aware it was going to be somewhat bigger than the ballpoint, but I didn't anticipate this. It is easily twice as big and much more than twice the weight of the ballpoint, which was a nice size, well-balanced, and an ergonomically comfortable pen. This pen is really too big in form alone. More importantly, the weight is a significant detractor -- too heavy and very, very unbalanced. If you put the cap on the end and write with it, it is so top heavy, it trys to fall out of your hand.

I really did want to like this pen but it's not one that I would recommend because of the ergonomic problems.

The listing did call it a large pen, but this was more than I expected. It does say "expertly weighted", which are reasonable person could easily interpret as properly balanced also. It absolutely is not.

I'd return it, but since I had it monogramed, Levenger can't realistically resell it. I tend to be of the "caveat emptor" philosophy and their description wasn't misleading, so I'll live with my purchase. It will end up in my computer bag as a spare pen.

All that said, the quality is there. I'll probably re-order the ballpoint with extra tips and get a gel ink cartridge for it and have a sort of rollerball that's a good ergonomic fit.

Great Feel

By 

from Montgomery, AL

Site Member

When I saw this pen/stylus I thought that it would be nice but little did I know how good a feel it would have. This pen/sylus is a sturdy pen with a great writing touch. As usual, Levenger has a product that is second to none.

Great combo

This is a great combo of pen and stylus. I have a dedicated stylus and pen that I take to planned meetings, however I have a lot of things pop up. I keep this in my car with circa notebook for those last minute meetings.

new pen

By 

from south bend indiana

Site Member

Just received my new L-TECH rollerball with stylus. It is wonderful. The writing is very smooth on all surfaces. It really feels good in my hand and has good balance. I was not sure about the stylus , but it works really good on the I pad and I phone. I highly recommend this.

Good style, mediocre execution

By 

from New York, NY

Site Member

This is a good looking pen/stylus but misses in the execution. The cap is continually unscrewing itself while in my pocket - it simply will not stay on. I had to return one pen for this reason but it still happens and I've lost one favorite shirt to this flaw. The balance of the pen is perfect, unless you like to put the cap on the back. The balance is off with the cap on the back.

Finally a decent writing instrument

By 

from Milwaukee

Site Member

I am a chiropractor and spend a lot of time writing notes. I've been looking for a decent writing instrument for some time and have tried other so called "fine writing pens" just to return them. Most other pens are just way to expensive or not very high quality.

The L-Tech is reasonably priced, feels great in your hand and most importantly, writes smoothly. The added stylus will be perfect for me once I transition to electronic health records. I would definitely recommend

Outstanding

By 

from Apple Valley, MN

Site Member

I carefully read all of the reviews prior to purchasing this pen, both the good and the bad. After using this pen for the past 2 weeks, I have come to the conclusion that it is simply an outstanding instrument. It is a large pen, but I do not believe it is any larger then any other high quality rollerballs in the marketplace today. It is well balanced and feels extremely comfortable in your hand. I would buy this again.

Great Pen Stylus Combo

By 

from Melbourne, FL

Site Member

This was exactly as described. it works as well as any stlus I have ever had and the rollerball pen is outstanding as you would expect. The only thing I woudl warn prospective customers about is the weight. It is heavy for a pen. That is not a bad thing, but if you are not aware of how much this ways incomparison to a Mont Blanc or Cross, you will be surpirsed. Love the feel and the useful ness of this precision instrument.

L Tech Rollerball

By 

from OKC, OK

Site Member

I bought the L Tech ink pen and loved it so I bought the roller ball. The stylus on both pens is excellent, one of the best I've ever had. The roller ball pen is a bit larger and heavier but has a nice feel and writes well. My only problem is that it keeps coming unscrewed. While writing (not even switching back and forth to the stylus) after about each sentence, you have to screw it back together. If they could get this slight flaw worked out it would definitely receive a 5+ star rating from me.
