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 take it back what I said, they don't last long and aren't as good as the Deleter Maru pen which are the best in my opinion. Just stick to Zebra G-Pens and Deleter's Maru pen and forget the rest.

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 drawings.
I've been using the Kaimei Drawing Pen Ink.

Fantastic. Best ever....
Verified Purchase
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.
