The great UGLee pen, an ergonomic pen review & giveaway

I write and draw, a lot. Lists and charts for everything around the house, ideas, brainstorming for my hat shop; sketches and designs for Moose's room. I have notebook upon notebook full of writing and everything is done in pen. With all of that writing, I need a pen that is going to be ergonomical, comfortable in my hands. That is where the UGLee pen comes in.

The UGLee pen isn't pretty. Ok, it's pretty ugly. But that's not how it got it's name. The name actally stands for Ultimate Grip by Dr. Lee. Reguardless, with how comfortable writing is with the pen, how can I complain about how it looks? 
You might be thinking, "How is the UGLee pen any more comfortable than any other "comfort pen""?

Well, let me tell you. Unlike most other pens, the UGLee pen was created by a doctor to make writing more comfortable. 
The UGLee pen has a full sized comfort grip with specifically designed contours that fit to and grip your hand so you don't have to grip it. 
The pen also only weighs 11 grams, which is equal to only less than half an ounce. A super light weight pen means more inertia and more comfort.

Other than the pen I recieved being pretty ugly, I have had a bit of an issue with it writing. It seems like I have to scribble a bit every time before I can actually write with it. The click part at the top is pretty loose too, so the pen tip often sticks out of the bottom of the pen, which could be an issue if it is in a pocket.

The good news is that not all of the pens are rediculously ugly. If you order pens from UGLee pen's website,, you can choose what color you prefer and most are decent looking.
