This is a really nice pen to have laying around. I disagree that it feels
"scratchy". A scratchy pen is inconsistent and jumpy. This pen simply has a
pleasant sound and feeling from the tip with lots of tactile feedback, and is
otherwise very smooth, consistent, and enjoyable to use.
Like I said, it's great pen to have laying around for impromptu jottings because
writing with it feels so satisfying, but being a roller ball the lines aren't
quite as sharp as my favorite gels. It has a very slight bleed, which made my
compact notes slightly fuzzier than those made with my trusty Uni-ball Signo
UM-151 0.38 note-taking pen. It also doesn't share that plucky get-up-and-go
feeling the Zebra Sarasa 0.4 has, so it doesn't replace it in my pocket.
I'm glad I bought it, even just for how nice and tactile it feels on paper. It
hasn't replaced the pen in my pocket or notebook, but here on my desk, hashing
out my thoughts on my little Rhodia No.12 notepad, it feels right at home.
