    Absolutely loved this pen when I first got it. But about 3/4 of the way through the first ink cartridge it quit working reliably. Changed the ink and it hasn’t made any difference. The ink isn’t getting to the tip for some reason. I can hear metal on metal squeaking when I try to write with it. Very disappointed.

    I really wanted to like this pen, sadly the 1st day I used it, the ink leaked all over the place. After trying to get the ink off my hand I had to try and clean the pen up and the ink cartridge. Today when I decided to try the pan again, there was ink in the cap, I am assuming from the pen tip. Very disappointed.

    A phenomenal pen and writes with ease i.e, very smooth. Additionally, the point size 0.7 is just right. The concept of a cartridge refill with a rollerball point is an amazing find and unique concept. I would love the possibility for consideration a bold (1.0) point.

    I hear you Pedro, on the jiggly pen cap. I love this pen, but the cap drives me nuts. I’ve even had it fly across the room while I was writing. Does anybody have a self-help fix? Or, is there a way to convince the manufacturer to fix this flaw? I would buy a replacement pen to get a cap that fits.

    I m using these pens with monteverde ink refills and love them but there are two negative points. the first one is the tip size, for me 0.5 should be perfect. The other complain is about the movement of the cap on the rear when using it posted.

    20+ year illustrator. I love pens that are rugged enough to carry everyday and take notes all day at work. One that I can also use to doodle. I love the fill system because I can put in my own ink mixes I have come up with. Very inexpensive. Top notch. My favorote zebra pen.

    Great pen well balanced only two change I would like to see is smaller MM and the ink bleeds as i have a tendency to let this pen set in one spot and I have a heavy hand.

    This pen feels really cheap even with the steel barrel. The ink is looks like it might bleed through the paper when you write even though it doesn’t unless you hold it in one spot for a really long time. I’d rather not worry about it bleeding through.

    This has to by far be the smoothest pen to write with. The only pen that I found that compares to it cost me $300 and the refills cost $10 each for that pen. My only complaint is that I wish they made smaller pen tip sizes. I often write calligraphy and I can not use this pen because the tip is to fat. The weight of this pen is spot on. Not to heavy not to light. The price of the pen and refills is perfect. The flow of the ink is perfect and it flows consistently until the last drop of ink. As you can tell I’m extremely picky about the pens I use and I can honestly say I love these pens.

    Definitivamente una de las mejores rollerball. He usado la misma pluma desde el 2010 y aun sigue siendo increíble. Debo decir que después de 6 años la mía se encuentra vieja y desgastada pero sin lugar a dudas siempre ha sido (y seguirá siendo) una compañera fiel

    Definitely one of the best rollerball . I used the same pen since 2010 and still remains incredible . I must say that after 6 years the mine is old and worn out but no doubt has always been ( and will remain ) a faithful companion

    I actually went into the local office supply store looking for more zebra F-301 ink cartridges and saw the R-301. I had a good feeling and picked up 5 of them. These are amazing. I have to use a pen pretty much all day at work filling out forms and the R-301 is my new fav. Smooth writing, sturdy, refillable, fits perfect in the hand… i’ll never go back. Trying to convert co-workers and friends. Everyone loves them so far. Don’t stop making them, ok?

    Very surprised!
    Excellent rasp and grab on the page surface, creating a bold, bleed free line.
    Love the refillable cartridge, and the closest thing to a nib point pen feel with the freedom of a ball head.
    Perfect for left-handed people like myself!

    hiya! 🙂 Well, I use erasable pens when I’m doing my note tanikg for my college classes, but ultimately, I just want something comfy. Have a nice comfy pencil — still on the search for a nice, comfy pen! :)[email protected]
