The Tronix Club is born. This ad in Home Computing Weekly, 21 July 1985 promised a lot and at least one satisfied customer responded, in the 1 October issue. I remember the rather strange flip-top pens that he refers to; unfortunately I no longer have one but you can see what they looked like below.
The Tronix club pen – A users manual
- Observe the pen in its closed state
- Holding the top firmly but carefully, swing it out
- Complete the swing motion and lock the cap in place.
- Enjoy many hours of writing pleasure.
Many thanks to David Jones for the pictures and Simon Plumbe of the Mastertronic Collectors Group on Facebook for bringing them to my attention.
