After reading so many good things on here about zebra I thought I'd give them a try. I just bought a Zebra F-301 and F-301 compact to try and cut down on the number of disposable pens we use in work. I'm not hugely impressed though tbh. We're a design office so pen quality is pretty important and although the pen itself is nice the ink seems rather grey and even upgraded to the 1.0mm medium refills the line weight is still a lot finer than the usual 0.7 pens we use (pilot v-ball). They were also a bit lightweight but are slightly better now with proper metal refills in rather than the plastic ones they came with. I also ordered a Lamy Scribble (as it takes the same refills as my pico) very nice pen. I'd like a more positive clicker action maybe and the tip is just a touch stumpy for full control but otherwise a lovely weighty, ergonomic pen. The broad refill also gives a nice lineweight. I can see the zebras getting used on site but only because I'd rather lose or damage a cheaper pen rather than one of the Lamys. Or maybe I should try and find a broader refill for them and give them a chance?
