Stabilo Sensor Fineliner 0.3mm Black Review

I want to start off this post by saying that I love fineliners.  Fountain pens are my favorite but fineliners are a close second for their lovely feel, portability, and ease of use.  Now on to the review:

The Stabilo Sensor features a micro-cushioning “sensor” technology that is supposed to make long writing sessions more comfortable.  The fineliner tip retracts into the metal casing when pressure is applied. For me it feels a bit weird.  The pen feels bouncy on the paper and I don’t feel quite as in control as I do with other fineliners.  The tip is smooth and glides along the paper nicely. I am not really sure I care for the looks of this pen.  The “aluminum look” doesn’t look back but I don’t care for all of the big bold branding; to me it doesn’t have a professional look, it looks like a marker.  The Sensor comes in black, blue, red, and green.  For $1.60 this isn’t a bad pen but I can’t say I will be rushing out to buy another one.

Stabilo Sensor Review
The pros:

  • The tip being cased in metal is durable and works well with a ruler
  • No ink bleed on to the paper

The cons:

  • The black isn’t as dark as other fineliners like the Ohto Graphic Liner (review to come)
  • Ink is non-archival
  • Springy tip feels odd

Here are some great reviews of the Stabilo Sensor:
