Do gel pens last long?
I also use a lot of different gel pens on a daily basis so it is difficult to really track how long they each last. If you’re mixing it up equally amongst the colors and writing (rather than drawing/coloring) a set will last a long time. I bought a set of 0.5 Inkjoys over a year ago and they’re still going strong.
