November 23, 2009
At first I was skeptical because I prefer heavier pens. However, I was quickly
convinced this pen is a keeper. Unlike other reviewers, I found it wrote smooth;
the ink never skips. The pen's shaft is a futuristic, somewhat sticky texture,
and easy to hold. The clip is sturdy but is only moderately stylish when on a
shirt pocket. The pen is a pleasure to twirl and has become my standard
household ballpoint pen. The "black" grip is actually an attractive shade of
dark grey; I gravitate to this colour as I find Zebra's other Espina offerings
too overtly feminine for my taste. While it took me a few weeks to get used to
the lighter weight, those who regularly use pens in the 0.50oz range should
really enjoy this one.
