    I am a product designer and graphic designer, so software design tools and traditional design tools are my daily drivers. I was looking for a wider, bolder ink pen than the .7mm Pilots and .7mm Uniballs I use. These Z-grips were advertised at 1.0mm wide on the package and description, so I jumped on them. NOT so! Apparently, no one has ever measured the actual widths of the lines produced by various pens, so I did. I tested the Z-grip 1.0mm against my Pilot G2 .7mm black ink pens and Uniball Signo .7mm pens. While NONE of them ever actually wrote to the dimensions specified. the Z-grip was the thinnest of all coming out nowhere near 1.0mm wide. See photos comparing line widths next to a precision metal mm ruler. Now I realized that paper type, pen pressure, room temperature, relative humidity all play a factor in determining line width. I have tested these 3 pens on different bond papers, artist paper, Strathmore paper, pad paper etc. all under the same conditions, pen pressure, line length and have consistently found the Z-grip 1.0mm pen to be .5mm or less! I even measured the roller ball of the 1.00mm with a micrometer and again, not even close to 1.0mm. I pointed this out to Zebra Pens via their website contact email form TWICE and never received a response. I call the customer service number on the website and the phone rang and rang and rang….Never answered. I even sent another website email indicating I would post a negative review if no response received…so here we are. Aside from the ink width issue, the pens write smoothly, fairly consistently and are a good value.Read more

    Received 3 packs of pens as a gift, giving me the opportunity to compare the Uniball, Pilot G2 Gel roller, and the Zebra “z grip”.You can see in the photo that the Zebra and the Uniball come out looking about the same, with the Pilot writing the darkest.The photo showing a “blank” page is how the pens show up through the paper – only the darker Pilot is slightly visible.Read more

    Part of my job is taking a lot of notes from a phone conversation or from a voicemail to give me the information needed to record an event. When I’m done with my notes, I draw a long line under the notes to separate events. When the event gets entered into the system, I draw a long line diagonally through the notes. The pens worked fine for the notes. They act like they’re dying on long lines. It took me a few days to figure out they need to rest a bit after drawing a long line to work properly again. This has been the case with 3 pens so far. Otherwise, for the price, they work well. Update 27/October/2018: I may have been hasty. After the third pen finally died, I grabbed another pen (I at least got SOME use out of them). Suddenly, the 4th, 5th, and (as a test) 6th pen all work wonderfully. Maybe I got a few bad pens. Maybe some are good and I’ll run into more bad ones. Maybe I just had a fluke package. Either way, I’m satisfied with my current trio.Read more

    I bought these, along with a set of memo clipboards, to use for food delivery/waitressing. If I ever need more pens (and I surely will), I’ll just buy a gigantic pack of these, no more shopping around. That’s pretty much the highest praise I can give. First, the value. I’m sure you could find a pen with a smoother ink flow, more comfortable grip, whatever, but I doubt you could find it at this price point. I use these pens every day, so I didn’t want anything too nice or expensive to lose/accidentally forget to get back from a customer. Plus, they ride around in my car, so I’ll always lose a few under seats and in compartments. I wanted a pen that was nice, but not too nice to replace without guilt. And they really are nice pens. They write smoothly, even at a slight angle, and rarely smear or blot (smearing is the main reason I didn’t buy Pilot G2s). The writing comes out dark, clear, and clean. I have noticed with my most-used pen that it rarely, after 15-20 minutes of non-stop writing, will seem to get clogged and write weakly (very little ink, kind of hard to read) for a few lines. A good scribble generally seems to clear up the problem. I particularly like the metal clip at the end. I find plastic ones often break quickly, and these seem far more sturdy. Overall, this is an excellent option for those looking for cheap-but-good daily use pens. They’re enjoyable to use, sturdy, write well, and enough of a value to easily replace when lost/empty of ink. Happy writing!Read more

    I own a small business. On a daily basis people need to write things on paper. Said people will often compliment us on our pens and ask what kind/where to purchase. I don’t hold that information as top secret so I tell them where they can purchase such nice pens as these…so they don’t steal mine. But they write well. Not a super heavy fluid/smooth pen but really good for a standard ball point. I love that they can write on glossy business cards/appointment cards since some of the other pens smear and smudge. I also love the retractable feature. I can’t stand the pen caps that go missing. Before you know it, your pens storage container has leaked ink puddling at its base and then you’ve got ink goop all over the place and it takes many minutes of paid staff time to figure out where the mess is coming from! Not with these pens. The retractable feature protects the roller ball from damage and keeps the mess down.Read more

    I was looking for a good ballpoint pen to use in my book review journal. I love rollerballs, but they tend to smear until the ink is totally dry. I need to write small to fit in my entire review on a page, but the medium point was a great price so I decided to give these a shot. Best ballpoint pens EVER. Other brands I’ve used in the past tend to get gloppy and I constantly have to wipe off the nib to prevent clumps. I usually have smears all over the page. Not here! These pens write so smoothly it’s like using a rollerball. The ink is nice and dark and easily read. I didn’t have any problem with skipping. I wrote an entire page and not once did I have to scribble to get the ink flowing again. Though they are medium point, I was still able to write tiny and legible. I’ll be sticking with these pens!Read more

    These don’t seem to be genuine Zebra pens. They came in a clear cello taped plastic bag rather than in a branded Zebra bag as they are sold in in high street shops/supermarket. Some pens have bits of fibre sticking out from under the rubber grip and the black plastic bit at the top is faded and scratched inside the clear plastic casing as if it’s been forced into it. All seems to indicate they’ve been put together in a diy kind of way. Each has a silver bar code sticker on which shop bought pens don’t. Again, it looks like stickers have been stuck on by hand. The white brand writing is blurred and is thicker than on shop bought pens. See the photo (Amazon pen on the left, shop bought pen on the right). They appear to be fake and won’t be buying them again. They do, however, seem to work and will do for my kids to use at school. Very disappointing though.Read more

    I ordered these as the one day all I could find in the house was one black ballpoint pen which ran out. Mum gave me another Christmas day. Then i came onto amazon to buy some and I saw these Zebra rubber gripped black ink retractable ball point pens, and £2.99 for 12 pens was an absolute bargain with Cree deliver6: Comfortable rubber grip stops pen slipping. Smooth flow of ink for neat handwritingvor note taking. And fully retractable to protect the ball point. I have them scattered about the house as I’m a keen on arrow words and cryptic crosswords. Would highly recommend you snatch a pack of these up for the price. Always handy to have in incase your like me and can never find a pen In the house!Read more

    Ive been using these pens for a while now and the last 2 orders of a box of 12 has not been great? The ink is NOT black? It’s more like its running out and it’s more a faded grey? My current pen is half full I can see and writes in a faded light grey. Not ideal!! (I’ve added a photo to show the comparison using another brand pen in black).Read more

    These pens are used by doctors and nurses a lot I found after a lengthy stay in hospital just recently. Ink in pens lasts a long time more so than general bic biro onesRead more
