Post-it Flag Pen - Black Ballpoint
Although the fat shape of the pen is not uncomfortable to write with, the balance of the pen is not quite right: the pen is too light for its size. The grip section, although soft and squishy, is too short and the slightly sticky surface attracts dust. I don't like the purple and black colour scheme, but there may be other options available and, of course, your taste in colours is probably different from mine.
The ballpoint is slightly better than average (with average being the basic Bic ballpoint), but nowhere near the quality of a Uni-ball Jetstream. It is tolerable if all you want is a basic pen for taking notes with in class (or some similar activity), but is certainly nothing to get excited about.
The body of the pen twists to hide or reveal the flag dispenser. The construction of this part feels a bit loose: it does not snap neatly into place but still moves around a bit when in either position.
