Okay, I've had this pen...
September 22, 2012
Okay, I've had this pen for just about three years now (in particular the Sharbo
X ST3 All Black). I stopped by today to purchase another pen and decided to
read some of the reviews on the site. For starters, my clip is made out of
metal, I'm not sure why someone else would have a plastic clip unless Zebra
decided to stop selling them with a metal clip. Secondly, if you have a problem
with placing the "position" of the rotating barrel then come up with another
solution. Last time I checked, a pencil is not going to leak. It might poke a
hole in a cheap bookbag or fabric case, but it's certainly not going to leak.
Here is another thought. I have my Sharbo X configured with a gel pen, pencil,
and stylus. Put the pen in the stylus position if you are worried about
leakage. Personally, I've positioned by pen in the "in between" position
probably hundreds of times and it has never inadvertently grown a mind of it's
own and slipped into the gel pen position. It would be really cool if it was a
Transformer, but I think those features are reserved for automobiles, planes,
and other vehicles. To alleviate that possibility, put it in the "in between"
position near the pencil and stylus (if you chose to do so). Just saying.
Otherwise, the pen is absolutely perfect. I haven't experienced chipping of
paint, major "flaws", or any other "issues" as outlined in some of the other
reviews and I've been a pen aficianado for over thirty years. Many reviewers
haven't even mentioned that the screw on cap has a rubber tip that works with
some LCD screens. I've used mine on a Panasonic Toughbook to make selections on
