Personally, I find the Zebra V-301 to be worth the money. The nib takes some
time to break in and smooth out but if you are patient, I think it delivers a
smooth line to the paper pretty steadily. I appreciate Ron's 2012 review and the
recommendation to use a Lamy converter...I'll try that. The lack of a refill
pack of cartridges is a definite problem: what's the point of a cartridge
fountain pen if you can't get the cartridges...or an appropriate converter?? So
keep your used cartridges if you, like me, are satisfied with the V-301 as a
sturdy, everyday fountain that pairs well with the roller ball (R-301), pencil
(M-301), or ballpoint (F-301). Come to think of it, JetPens has refills for the
R-301 that MIGHT fit the V-301. What say you, JetPens?
