Good, strong color that flows freely and dries without smudging. If you are writing quickly you may experience some ink build-up on the tip. It doesn't bother me enough to drop my rating but you should be aware that it can happen. The 1.0 mm line is so consistent that I can live with it. Congratulations, Zebra!

This is an outstanding 1.0 mm ink pen! Solid components set off by the rubber grip that gives me just enough "hold" to write quickly and confidently. The clip is sturdy and the red accent on the clicker end is a nice touch. The EX Emulsion ink is a little runny, building up on the tip if you write for extended periods without stopping but I don't mind that because the ink quality and depth of color are so good. The Z-Mulsion makes a good daily carry and is a great note-taker if you, like me, are comfortable with a 1.0 mm line. Thank you, Zebra!

Excellent drafting pencil...lives up to its billing! Good value for the price, very pleasing design and balance; this pencil is a delight to work with. Keep in mind, however, that this is truly a drafting pencil, not a daily carry. The lead-protecting sheath does not retract and you will catch its needle-like point in your pocket, so be careful if you just have to have it with you all the time.

A good, solid ballpoint...5 stars when Sailor adds a 1.0 mm refill. The G-Free is a great value for the price -- well-designed, balanced, and attractive. The variable click is intriguing. I set it at a "medium" strength setting which made it feel more authoritative. The G-Free refills write well; I couldn't get mine to skip. I prefer the triangular grip on my ballpoints so that's an added plus. Sailor, please expand the refill options to include a 1.0 mm refill as good as Zebra's Z-Mulsion EX.

Pretty near the perfect traveler's fountain pen. Beautifully designed and produced; the high quality of the materials and the fit and finish are impressive. I bought a Fine nib and it's got enough flex for me. As with most fine-point fountains, however, you do have to take into account the kind of paper you are writing on. For example, the credit card receipts at most restaurants and made of a specially coated stock that doesn't take Noodler's or Farhney's bottle ink well. For extra versatility in a traveler's pen, try Herbin's half-size roller ball. One TWSBI and one Herbin make excellent daily companions.

High-quality ink...for a high-quality pen! V-301 is a bargain fountain pen and the ink flows well and dries quickly. I would like Zebra to market a 4- or 6-cartridge package. An all-metal version of the V-301 and the R-301 pens would be great, too. Get the R-301 roller ball if you don't like fountain pens.

The Pilot S20 is beautifully proportioned and balanced. If you are comfortable writing with a slim profile ballpoint, this is a good workhorse for every day use. My reason for awarding four stars and not five? The ink tended to build up on the tip during extended use and I had to wipe it several times on a scrap piece of paper. Perhaps Pilot recognized this and reformulated the ink in the recent past...I have no way of knowing unless I buy another S20 because I gave mine away to an admiring colleague some time ago!

The Zebra R-301 is a nearly perfect daily carry. It is well designed and well balanced. Elegantly simple in the fit and finish of the barrel, clip, end caps and finger grip. The ink flow is a bit "wet" or "fast," you may experience a bit of bleed-through on thin paper but it dries quickly. My only reason for not awarding five stars is the loose fit of the cap both when closing the pen and when posting the cap on the back from writing. The cap stays on in both positions but it rotates freely around the collar. Fortunately the cap for the similarly designed Zebra V-301 fountain pen only rotates in the posted position.

I have written long hours with my Uni-Ball Pure Malt ballpoint loaded with the black and red refills in the S-7S series and recommend them to anyone using one of Uni's compatible pens. The blue and green ink refills are also vibrant, smooth-running and reliable. They will last until the final whisper of ink is gone. If you are a Pure Malt user as I am, you will find that Uni-Balls' SXR-80-07 series of refills work just as well as the S-7S series...plus there is a 4th refill "holder" inside the Pure Malt that you can slip a spare into for safekeeping until needed!
