  I've been using the Zebra..., July 6, 2011
I've been using the Zebra F-301 exclusively for about the last fifteen years. I prefer the textured plastic grip to the rubber grip of the F-402. I've tried the various colors available (they come in black, blue, burgundy, and green), but prefer the black. I find it to be a perfect pen for writing or drawing, because it has a very even ink flow - no globs! As a lefty, I always had problems with pens leaving ink globs that would then get smeared as I continued to write - not a problem with the Zebra F-301. As for other people "borrowing" the Zebra F-301 and "forgetting" to give it back? Not a problem for me. My coworkers know they'd better not even think about touching my F-301. Also, I have left an empty F-301 lying around while I'm not there, so if anyone tried to use it, it wouldn't work. Then, when I'm there with my REAL F-301, people might see it lying around, but will avoid it out of habit, assuming it to be empty. Also, if anyone does ever borrow it, I don't let them out of my sight. And I stare at it in their hand until it is safely returned to me. I have considered getting the F-301 Compact, because it apparently comes equipped to wear on a lanyard. On the plus side, that would seem to pretty much eliminate borrowing altogether, but on the other hand, I just don't know if I want to go there...?

I've managed to hold on to the same Zebra F-301 ballpoint for twenty years. I've refilled it dozens of times and it still goes strong and is still good looking in a techie kind of way, which proves it's a classic.

I'd buy another one, but why? I've had the same one forever.

One of the best pens i´ve been using at work. Light, not very big, handy and comfortable typing.

Such a nice handy little pen. It has a nice stainless steel body with a nice overall look. Maybe it would be better with an integrated rubber grio instead of plastic

  I love this pen for the..., July 6, 2011
I love this pen for the feel and form factor. However, I really don't care for the writing quality. I would love to find a refill that fits this body but works better. My ideal writing pen is the Signo RT Gel 0.38, but any good fine point gel refill would be good. I did try the Zebra G-301, but I found the ink blotchy, not at all fine point, and it took forever to dry. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

By jef...
My expierence with this pen was not a good one. I was carrying the F-301 in my pocket, along with a Lamy Safari fountain pen. The F-301 leaked it's ink all over the inside of my jacket pocket. The Safari fountain pen, however, has not leaked once.

Maybe I received a bad one, but I would not buy a Zebra F-301 again.
