    I absolutely love this pen. The problem I have with it is I have to buy separate .7 blue ink refills. Please please please provide this pen with blue ink and provide more ink in the cartridges. You guys are so close to the perfect pen. I know a lot of people complain about not getting it in blue and using up the ink fast.

    This is my favorite pen from Zebra. I have a ton of them and use them daily. The ink lays down smooth and the pen feels great in the hand. It also stand up well in the harsh environment I work in. If only it would use Sarasa refills. Oh wait, the new G-350 does!

    Love this pen, glad I bought the 2 pack, my wife confiscated the other.

    If possible, I would love to see a line of colored gel inks including red and blue obviously, but other colors would be welcome too.

    This is my new favorite pen. I have a lot of zebra products. This ones the best. Let me add to a majority of the comments: WE NEED THIS IN BLUE!! I’d buy at least two packs plus refills off the jump.
    Your customer service has always been top notch to me so let’s do this.

    Luv the 402 ink pen, but mine has been having issues of popping out of the bottom. Appears the threads are worn and allowing the spring to push the refill out.

    I purchased this pen set about 2 month ago. I ended up taken it back because one pen was manufacture challenged, it started leaking. The next set was prefect. This probably is the best writing pen I have ever used. But, like one of the earlier comments the ink doesn’t last long, about 2 weeks. That’s a problem within itself. Also, why doesn’t the stores stock refillable? I may have to change to a different pen.

    I LOVE THIS PEN!! I am a nurse also, snd everyone knows about nurses & stealing pens!! Well, my ONLY gripe is that i cannot find it in BLUE ink! Otherwise, FABULOUS, FABULOUS, FABULOUS!! (This, i know to be true to othrrs ss well, because every time i let someone sign their consent with it, they let me know just WHAT A GREAT PEN it is)!! Im always afraid they’ll ask to keep it! I started using a different ballpoint pen to give to patients, so that im sure to get my ZEBRA back!!! Thanks!!

    Like this G-402 gel extra fine point pen. What I don’t like is that the ink supply tube is too small of a capacity. Pen is pricey and should come with the double-capacity ink refills. I only write a moderate amount each day and my pen is only lasting about two weeks. Question is there a higher capacity gell 0.5mm refill available for this pen?

    I Like this pen, the G-402 0.5mm. The refills on Amazon are more than the pens cost. The ink cartridge that came with it is a small amount of ink. I don’t write a lot and in 1 week 1/2 of the ink is used up.
    Is there a better refill that will last longer? Also can you list some other refills that will fit this pen with a gel 0.5mm tip?

    I have been a long time user of the F-402 and love the pen with the exception of what I call a design flaw that the click part of the pen starts to come off the barrel. I was looking to replace the pen with a different one and found the G-402 and decided to give it a try. Even though the design looks to be identical it appears they may have found a fix for the issue on the F-402. I found this pen of all places at the grocery store but now can’t find it anywhere including the ink refills which is why I am on the website. Just order a bunch of refills and a few extra packs of pens just in case it gets swiped since everyone that I lend my pen to always makes the “this is a nice pen” comment and eventually they go missing.

    OK I love the way this pen writes, a fine gel pen is perfect around the office and for quick sketches!

    I do have a “however”… the plastic insides are sliding into the metal body so the grip is mushrooming out. My coworker is getting the same but he writes harder than I do. I have tried to pull it back out without luck but between the one I have been using for 2 weeks vs an unused one its about 1mm

  23. Rated 5 out of 5


    Spectacular writing instrument!
    Fine, unbroken lines from a consistent flow of ink, and possessed of a goodly weight to boot, this pen is an enormous pleasure to use as the weight of the pen alone is sufficient pressure to leave a mark and does not require one to press down, allowing the hand greater control, and write for longer durations. Make certain to procure several refills when you purchase the pen, as the cartridges do not last long (about seven to ten days with moderate to frequent use, unless you’re like me and over-zealously cross out your mistakes.) If you derive pleasure from using a quality pen, give this a go.

    If refills came with an extra spring, that would be an improvement, I formerly used the F-402 (non gel) and the refills came with springs.

    Any idea when the G-401 refill (JK-Refill 0.5mm Black 2Pk
    $2.44 per refill) will be back in stock? I just found out that these also fit in the G-301 pen and am elated to have a super lightweight pen with a fine point in gel. Amazon wants $11 for a pack of 2 refills!!

    This pen is absolutely marvelous. It is my favorite by far. I just cant afford to go and by the full pen or the double pack every 3 weeks. I use it constantly 5 – 6 days a week I really wish that when I come to the main web site (and I mean every time)the refills are not in stock. I really love this pen and I don’t want to waist the metal barrel. Please help!

    Very nice pen, found at local supermarket. It’s sturdy, nice heft in the hand, and the .5mm line suits my compact writing style. BUT: no refills available anywhere in town, including Zebra’s own website, knocks a full star off my rating. Could have become a new favorite, but not until I can write with it again.

    Question: Can I use the 0.7mm JK refill in the G-402 pen?

    • Zebra Support


  37. Rated 4 out of 5


    Very Good Pen! I really like the Zebra G-402 pens. The ink flows constant and consistent without any skips or variance. The feel in the writing hand is superior, especially with the rubber grip around the metal barrel. The retractable button feel superior to other brands and I particularly like and prefer the low-profile or deep-carry pocket clip as I carry it in my front shirt pocket that also has a tight clip so it is less likely to fall out of my pocket. It would be better if the ink cartridge was larger like the size of the F-402 that holds a lot more ink and writes a lot longer before needing a refill. I prefer no plastic underneath the rubber grip to prevent breakage under a lot of pressure. Is the barrel all stainless steel without any plastic under the rubber grip? I recommend this pen for both business and personal every day carry!

    I love this pen and have been using it (plus two extras) for more than 20 years. Especially the metal refills. But I would really like to have other ink colors – especially green and purple. Thanks for a great product, long-lasting and minimal plastic. Also please consider packaging without plastic.

    how long does the ink last for this pen? I have the G301 GP and the ink lasts me like 2 days.

    • Michael Wacewicz

      Hi Carolina. The G-402 has a finer point than the G-301 so it will lay down less ink. The G-402’s write out is dependent on how frequently you use it.
