2 Levenger Rollerball Refills
need more choices
These are good refills, but the sets of two seem to be available only in Extra Fine now. I know the company still makes the Fine and Medium points because they are included in the sets of six (along with three with fiber tips, which I don't want). We should be able to order F and M without having to buy EF and fiber-tip as well.

Theses refills are great. The ink flows nicely and easily. Received them 2 days after ordering which I think is a good turn around time. Wish there were ballpoints in this size.

The quality and easy of ordering the Levenger rollerball refills always makes me come back when I need the new ones.
Never had an issue and have been using for years

a good deal
What I like best about these refills is that they work with a number of pens in my collection (I have a pen paraphilia).
In a perfect world, they would be somewhat less expensive
and would not run out of ink quite so soon.

BASIC pen refills
For a company that prides itself on fine writing instruments and boasts a lovely selection of colored inks, the selection and quality of the Levenger rollerball refills is dismal at best. Short of using the Visconti refillable rollerballs (of which I have two), the offerings from Levenger are predictable, boring, and dry out a bit more quickly than they should.

I've owned Levenger pens for many years, receiving my first fountain pen as a gift -- after going through 5 or 6 fountain pens, I made a shift to rollerballs because the specific pens I fancied are no longer made -- though I'd probably shift to a rollerball of that type if I could get one -- good, old, indestructible brass pens! :(. I really like the needpoints, but I find that there is a quality difference depending on the color ink used.
Red is the best -- the ink lasts the longest for number of pages written with a good, consistent ink flow. I suck the life out of the blue ones really fast, but it has the best ink flow. Jury is still out on blacks, but my initial impression is that it's somewhere between the blue and the red in terms of longevity and ink flow.
Still, these refills are much better than the average cheap pen you can get, and I own a *lot* of pens. Definitely recommended if you're a pen snob like I am.

Beware: Will not fit older rollerball pens
I recently ordered these refills for my True Writer rollerball. However, when I received them they did not fit. Levenger customer service informed me that these refills do not fit pens purchased in 2002 or prior, and my pen is fairly old. I understand a change of refill, but this caveat should be clearly noted in the product description. I gave the refills 4 stars because they work well -- I just wish they fit my pen!

High Quality Ink
I have a number of high-end pens, and when they ran out of ink I bought refills at my local office supply store. I purchased Levenger refills last time, and there is a huge difference in quality of ink. I dont get the skipping, nor do I need to scratch the rollerball on paper to get the ink flowing. Ink is very smooth.

Needs More Colors
My dad got me a Levenger Rollerball for my 21st birthday and I love it. The ink skipped a little bit when I am journaling and I will sometimes have to scribble on a back page to get it to flow again. However, overall, I love my pen and I love the way it writes.
I gave only 2 stars for "style" because I wish there were more colors available for the rollerball refills. My top two choices would be Amethyst and Gemstone Green. I normally journal in black ink, but it would be nice to have more color options.

The ink is still fine, but the rollerball refills seem to run out far more quickly than they once did. I've used Levenger refills for many years and notice a significant difference in the "writing time" available in my recent refills. Levenger once offered more ink colors, too. Now their selection is the same boring colors that everyone carries. With everyone using red ink these days, perhaps cheerier colors would help brighten our days.
