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.
At first I thought this would be a poor competitor to the 0.7mm Jetstream.
After a full shift at work using just this pen I can say I was wrong! The
Jetstream is only slightly smoother but the Surari is a tad darker. The writing
was a little scratchy at first but as the day went on this went away. The only
problem I had was that ink would glob on the tip of the pen and I'd have to wipe
it off. It would never get on the paper though.
In comparison to the Jetstream Sport Black Fine, I find that the Surari's ink
generally flows less smoothly. The ease of writing is inconsistent between
different kinds of basic paper -- it writes great on some, and requires more
effort on others; I can't figure out exactly what it is about the particular
paper that causes this.
In contrast, the Jetstream writes consistently, reliably smoothly on any paper I
