Zebra Round Pen Type A(Hard)
Zebra Round Pen Type A, as an important tool for Manga Artist, can this pen
live up to it's G-Pen's sibling's repuation? Let's take a look. For people who
have not used this pen or will be using this pen in the near future,the first
time you use this, it will be hard to handle. Esp. if you're not used to using a
mapping/or small tip pen, this pen really takes a while to get used to. The
problem that most users will find is its tendency to scratch the paper and carry
debris. However,I have noticed that after you find a certain angle with this
pen, the problem won't occur as much. Also, another problem that people may run
into is its resistance to flow. This will happen a lot! However it's still able
to draw the line you want, but as mentioned before, this pen is a little
difficult to handle,probably a little more than the G-Pen, but after you find
the right angle for the pen tip to draw, the true function of the Zebra Type A
Round Tip shows. By far from my handling of Comic Nibs, this pen makes the
FINEST lines of any round pen I've tried(even more fine than Nikko, Deleter, and
Tachikawa Round Nibs). For people who are obsessed with doing very small and
extremely fine detailing, this pen is FOR YOU! Also this pen is capable of
drawing even a thick line! Probably close to that of the G-Pen's capabilities!
But for it's advantages, this pen is a must for any artist looking to work with
a very good mapping/round pen! But be warned, there is a learning curve to using
this and it will take a while to master the Type A Round Pen in order to get the
satisfying result you want. When mastered, The Zebra Type A Round Pen does rival
the G-Pen's reputation!

I got this nib model because I've heard it's ideal for very tiny details, but I
have a very hard time getting it to consistently release ink without pressing
hard, which makes my lines thick and bold (the opposite of what I need).
I don't know if it's just me, but I cant get repetitive detail lines out of this
nib without stopping every minute to struggle with it. When it does work it's
fantastic, but the constant problem with ink flow has ruined a number of my
I've been using the Kaimei Drawing Pen Ink.
Fantastic. Best ever....

Fantastic. Best ever. This is the hard version and it still has flex to it.
Super fine lines to thicker lines ..for even thicker super flex lines use Zebra
G nibs). I'm forever now giving up on various fibre and technical pens.
Converter forever to nibs.
Goes extremely well with Kaimei Sol ink, just to add that in.
