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

Not great, not awful! It smears, that's my biggest complaint. It writes nice and
it a good looking blue body and ink color. But as a lefty I need it to DRY!!

I find the ink in this pen to be wonderful. It is very expressive. I have yet to
see any globs as reported by another reviewer. This pen writes smoothly and is a
delight to use.

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.

This is one of my top "go-to" pens! It's great for everything- note taking,
signatures... It writes a thin, sharp, consistent line (which I love because my
lettering is so small); it does not bleed through, nor does it smudge (I am a
fast left-handed writer-so this is exactly what I look for in a pen). I believe
this pen has surpassed my love for my Hi-Tec Cs.
I WILL be ordering more of these.
