What is a rollerball pen?
A rollerball pen is composed of water based ink which is similar to that used in a fountain pen. This is compared to a ballpoint pen which uses oil-based ink. Generally this means that a Rollerball pen gives a more fluid writing experience compared to a Ballpoint. Rollerball pens additionally have a different barrel style, a rollerball pen generally will have a cap so that the tip of the refill cartridge will not dry out. Rollerball pens are also able to have finer tips which is beneficial when creating detailed writing work.
