You are viewing a breakthrough in ink history, the development of a new ink type!! The new Emulsion ink from Zebra combines the best quality of a ballpoint and gel ink pen. It has the smoothness of an oil-based ballpoint ink pen but features the vibrant colors of a gel ink pen. That's an incredible new development. The Emulsion is supposedly even smoother than \"low friction\" ballpoint pens, is smear-proof and water resistant. The Zebra Surari is available in multiple tip sizes and colors.
I would warn people away from buying this pen; the ink blobs and smears
unpredictably while writing, although it's more often when you first touch pen
to paper. I can also write something then smear the ink using another piece of
paper, so it isn't that fast to dry, either.
Were the ink better, I'd rate the pen better, since it feels OK in my hand and
otherwise writes well. But the bad ink completely ruins this as a viable pen
This pen is not bad compared to "regular" pens, but inferior to the equivalent
Jetstream model (blue 0.5 mm). I find the ink of the Zebra to be somewhat more
free-flowing, which is a bad thing: it tends to give off ink globs significantly
more often and overall looks somewhat sloppy. Also, the ink in the Jetstream
seems to be slightly darker in colour, which I prefer.
