A few weeks ago, we received a set of UGLee Pens to test out. What’s an UGLee pen? It’s an ergonomic ink pen designed by a physician. UG stands for Ultimate Grip and Lee is the last name of the creator. So there you have the name UGLee. Also, in case you haven’t noticed, the pen isn’t the prettiest out there.It’s pretty ugly. Ha ha, get it?
The UGLee Pen is designed to fit the contours of your hand and provide the most comfortable writing experience possible. According to Dr. James Lee, the creator of the UGLee pen, anyone can benefit from using it. Children can use it to prevent overuse injuries and adults can use it to alleviate hand problems. In addition to being comfortable, the pen also writes smoother than other pen you’ve used.
So what did we think of the UGLee pen?
We were both surprised at the smoothness of the ink flow and overall feel of the pen. The grip is squishy but firm. The gel looks similar to rubber fishing lure material but it doesn’t smell anything like it. Yes, I smelled it, now stop judging me! As far as comfort goes, Phillip and I were both pretty disappointed. I tend to grip pens and pencils too hard when writing. The UGLee pen felt good at first but after a while I realized that my hand still hurt after writing for longer than a few minutes. Phillip complained that the pen moved around as he was writing. I didn’t believe him at first but after paying close attention to the pen while I was writing, I noticed it too. The gel is just squishy enough that it feels like the pen isn’t secure while you’re writing.
We both noticed one huge problem – the gel attracts cat hair like a magnet. One quick drop on the floor and the grip was completely covered in hair. The only way to remove the hair is to wash the pen or wipe it with a wet cloth. I don’t know about you but I don’t need yet another thing to wash.
Our verdict? Pass on the UGLee pen. It’s a bit overpriced at $30 for 3 pens and they don’t work as well as advertised. The concept sounds great but the delivery is not so great.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
