Product Review


  On my ongoing search..., July 29, 2012
By suin2d
On my ongoing search for the perfect ball point pen to illustrate and ink with, I tried the Zebra Surari. Being a huge Zebra fan, I was really hoping this one would pull through, but for my purposes, it didn't.

Pros:
- nice grip
- creates a think, but dark line
- light weight (could be a con depending on preference. I like lighter bodies)

Cons:
- blots very quickly if writing on an angle; thus creating varied line widths.
- will sometime drag ink threads

The blotting is a huge con. The only way to prevent a blotting tip from happening is if you always write at a perfect 90 degree angle to your surface. Even then, ink threads can appear at any time if you don't clean the tip at varied intervals.

In the end, this is a perfect pen for simple note taking... but so is any other fine tip pen you can purchase locally. Not worth the shipping costs you need to shell out to get this pen online.
