Tombow Zoom 505 Liquid Ink Roller Ball Pen - 0.5 mm - Black - TOMBOW BW-2000LZA11

This pen looks and feels really great. It has a nice thick grip, which I enjoy, and the weight and balance feels just right.

The pen writes much thicker than 0.5mm though. Compared to my Orca which feels more true to the line weight.

There is also this really distracting reflection that projects onto the page while writing. It seems there is a flat silver area right where the silver meets the black, and while you are writing there is this ring of light that gets cast onto the page and while you are writing it just jumps around. Once I noticed it I could not ignore it and now it's super distracting.

0.5 writes like 1.0 or higher.

I should have paid attention to the reviews. While this pen does write nice, the line is way thicker than 0.5. I bought 5 other pens that were 0.5 and this one writes even thicker than some of my 1.0 pens.

So, be aware and buy smaller than you normally would if you're concerned about line weight.

I really enjoy almost everything about this pen. It feels very high quality from the weight to the solid construction to the flow of writing with it. It writes very smooth and fluidly and also kind of snappy. It's easy to control. The only thing I am not crazy about is the grip. I prefer the rubber grip of some of my other pens like the Signo 207. That being said, it might just be personal preference that I like rubber grips and after writing a page or so with the Orca I did start to get used to it.

Overall, a very good quality pen. I'm quite happy with it.
