This is the pinnacle of multipens. Even after three years, the mechanism is as
tight as when it was new. The cap over the eraser is solid brass and screws on,
so it is nearly impossible to lose. The carbon fiber sleeve provides a
fantastic feel and is far more beautiful than the pictures reveal. I agonized
for weeks over pulling the trigger on such a pricey pen but I finally did it
and, knowing what I know now, would spend much more without hesitation. If
you're a hard writer (like me), order the ballpoint refills because the roller
balls will last an hour if you're lucky. Above all, buy this pen!
It's a little lighter than I usually prefer but this pen writes much better than
it's price tag would insinuate. Some weren't impressed by the refill but I
haven't had it skip yet and it always feels smooth.
I love the boldness of gel ink but I'm in the "I've never met a roller ball I
didn't wreck" category. I press very hard when I write and roller balls just
don't last more than an hour or two. Then I found this pen. Wow! They were
right when they said that emulsion ink offered the boldness of gel in a
ballpoint pen. The ink is black as night, doesn't smear like gels frequently
do, and the tip has withstood my daily abuse for three weeks and is still
writing like the day I got it. Now all Zebra needs to do is put this ink in a
really high-end barrel and I'm hooked for life!
