Chromatics is the science of color, and this Retro 51 Tornado rollerball pen will take your visual perceptions to a scientific level with its vibrant rainbow finish. The spectrum of colors are ion-plated on the barrel, then lightly brushed and complete with polished chrome. Each barrel will have its own unique color variation from one pen to the next, but they all are loaded with a smooth rollerball refill and packaged in Retro 51 brand packaging. This twist-action rollerball will take you to another world where waves of color stimulate not only your eye and brain, but now your writing too.

Uses the Retro 1951 Tornado rollerball refill.

Great pen that doesn't work for me

The pen is gorgeous and writes well. I wish it worked for me, but it's too back weighted for my hands. I'd still recommend it strongly as long as the balance point works for you.

Beautiful

This is one awesome pen I normally use fountain pens. But I found fun with this pen I love the colour. Perfect shipping ty.

Retro 51 Chromatic Rollerball

I'm a fountain pen user. I bought this as a gift for my wife, who is not. The pen looks fantastic! It is somewhat heavy for its size, which helps it sit in the hand quite comfortably. And it requires virtually no pressure to write. We both think the pen performs admirably (for a non-fountain pen, of course). I am very happy with the purchase, and dealing with the Goulet company always is a pleasure.

Not a Fountain Pen

If you're on this site, you most likely prefer the writing experience of a fountain pen. So do I. However, signing receipts and birthday cards and such requires a ball point or a rollerball. This pen writes really well for a rollerball. I have to push a little harder and it is not as smooth as my fountain pens. That said, the pen looks gorgeous and serves its purpose well. I will never buy another rollerball and I'm thrilled to own this one for the times a fountain pen will not do.
