Pilot Hi-Tec-C Maica Gel Ink Pen - 0.4 mm - Blue Black - PILOT LHM-15C4-BB
  The ink is classic Hi-Tec-C,..., August 14, 2014
By pet...
The ink is classic Hi-Tec-C, which you either love or hate. Most people love them, and you might too! Personally, I find them lacking page-grip and the ink too wet. I write very small and very fast, and Hi-Tec-C's tend to make my writing sloppy. Like I said, personal preference.

The Maica body though, is fantastic. It's weighted nicely, the cap has a firm snap on both ends, and it's the perfect thickness for me. It makes me wish I liked Hi-Tec-C's.
Pilot Juice Gel Ink Pen - 0.38 mm - Blue Black - PILOT LJU-10UF-BB

This is a very decent pen. Shockingly consistent and MUCH better than a G2. I thought it'd be the favorite pen of my blue-black gel grab-bag for a while, but a few niggles demoted it. While consistent, the ink is too blue for me, and not particularly contrasty. Though the finished line looks smooth, the tip feels slightly scratchy and inconsistent across the page. The clip is a clone of the Zebra Sarasa Clip, but not quite as good.

This is a good, versatile all-around pen and is easy to use, but I found the Uni-ball UM-151 produced clearer notes, and the Zebra Sarasa has a better body, writes better, and is just as versatile.

Update to my V-301 review a little bit ago...refills are available on the JetPens site. Not sure why I couldn't find them on the first search.

Personally, I find the Zebra V-301 to be worth the money. The nib takes some time to break in and smooth out but if you are patient, I think it delivers a smooth line to the paper pretty steadily. I appreciate Ron's 2012 review and the recommendation to use a Lamy converter...I'll try that. The lack of a refill pack of cartridges is a definite problem: what's the point of a cartridge fountain pen if you can't get the cartridges...or an appropriate converter?? So keep your used cartridges if you, like me, are satisfied with the V-301 as a sturdy, everyday fountain that pairs well with the roller ball (R-301), pencil (M-301), or ballpoint (F-301). Come to think of it, JetPens has refills for the R-301 that MIGHT fit the V-301. What say you, JetPens?
Zebra Double-Sided Brush Pen FD-501 - Soft - Broad / Fine - ZEBRA FD-501
  6 stars. Awesome performance..., August 14, 2014
By X_pinete
6 stars. Awesome performance on both sides, and fun to draw and write with. One of the best (if not the most complete) brush pen I've tried. Let's see if durability is as good as it works. By the moment, I recommend it to be in every drawing kit.
