I recently received the Ultimate Grip UGLee Pen invented by Dr. James Lee for review. It’s touted as the world’s most comfortable ergonomic pen. My initial reaction was one of amusement; I thought to myself at least the name fits. You can’t see comfort. To date it is the ugliest pen I have ever seen, however it wasn’t designed to win beauty pageants.
The UGLee Pen was designed for comfort and it delivers. Whether you write all day or less than 5 minutes, you’ll be able to do so without cramping or strain. There is no denying that the UGLee Pen will help reduce hand fatigue. It is extremely lightweight (it weighs less than half an ounce) and the gel-like grip around the barrel seems to conform to your hand.
I’m a digital girl that “writes” only a few times a week so I’m no power user. Since I received 3 pens, I enlisted my husband to help me put the UGLee Pen to the test. He works a 12 hour shift and at times in extreme conditions where the internal temperature of the generating station might register as high as 120 degrees.
Although he found the UGLee Pen to be comfortable, he thought the lightweight construction was too flimsy. After several hours of use, the gel-like grip around the barrel became irritatingly pliable and the ink quality was poor, not only does it skip, it leaks. We assume it was due to the heat in his work environment as the other pens have remained unchanged. However those pens have not been used as often.
So here’s the ugly on the UGLee Pen:
- Retractable Sold in Packs of 3 for $19.99~ you can choose from 7 barrel colors
- Smooth black ink is standard
- Refillable~ ink refills are available in additional colors (red, blue, black)
- Can also be purchased on Amazon
- Product has been featured on The Doctors television show
Overall, I feel the UGLee Pen might benefit someone who experiences pain and discomfort when writing, suffers from hand cramps and fatigue, ailments such as arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome. It might be helpful to students who experience strain when writing for long periods of time.
Personally, I know in elementary school, I would have enjoyed writing I Will Not Talk When the Teacher Is Talking (500 times) a lot more using an UGLee Pen rather than a Bic Roller.
I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!)
