    I've seen those, you must use the plastic ones. Seems like a decent company with good product.

    Seems like there was this whole thread a few years ago. Were I think HooserDaddy said to wear a purple shirt, Mungia and his shorts, JD said American made car or, Gooner I believe used a Montblanc pen and I said I used a MontBlank because I could not afford a Montblanc.

    I have used about every type of pen. I have won 3 or 4 Montblancs, I could not tell you were a single one is. At times I have to borrow a bic from the prospect.

    I do admit that I have my preferences though. I use a bold mostly at the desk and in the car. I Like bold blue ink. Stands out if I am marking up a proposal or form. I use a finer pen for apps because some just do not leave much room. Or whatever the client has.

    Clients do notice the little thing. I had to take care of some service work for an Asian family. I have been their agent Xs 20+ years and probably 30+ extended family members insured. I walk in, pull off my tennis shoes and sit down to do work. The mom says something the daughter translates - "" Did you hurt your foot? Why no Cowboy boots "" I had to start laughing.

    Now,
    Now you got me thinking. One thing that I have run into many times over the past few years is compliments on how I smell... don't I know that opens me up to the hecklers. :yes:

    But in truth, I have received many compliments, both female and male (don't even go there with me... think I have a phobia...).

    I was wondering what sort of "smelly stuff" or "perfume" for you ladies, that you use in the field? What sort of responses have you received... including the occasional sneeze.

    We deal in an untouchable product... so the best sale is ourselves... and how we smell.

    Don't worry... I'll let you know what I use as soon as I hear from some of you.:rolleyes:

    My pens are custom and say "This pen used to belong to Newby. Now it belongs to a thief!" I mean a friend! It now belongs to a friend.

    I don't have to use a pen nearly as much as when I first started, before online apps were a thing, but having the right pen still means something. Kind of judge them by the same standards as knives, they have to "feel right" in your hand.

    I used to use Cross pens, but got tired of having to pry them out of the hands of new clients. I've been using Zebra fine Point Black for over 10 years. Old folks seem to like them and if they want to keep it, I'm only out $2. I actually kept one of my client's Zebra pen recently. :laugh:

    Someone should start selling flights of pens to sample like a craft brewery.
