zebra f-301 ballpoint

In the advent of so many gel pens, the ballpoint pens get left behind. One of the problem we often encounter with ballpoint pens is how sticky the inks are. Zebra F-301 is very smooth and almost as smooth as a gel pen.

When I worked at a big box store of office supplies, I have met this guy who works as a trucker. He said all of his trucker friends only buy this pen. I have also met a couple of traveling nurses and they too, use this Zebra ballpoint pen.

It starts right up and never skips. It's not the darkest ink I've used, but it's not a big deal to me. The pen is made of metal with a knurled, plastic grip for non-slip feel. Unfortunately, for dry hands or older hands like mine, I prefer a thicker body, so I wrap mine with one piece of rubber band on the grip area or you can get a pencil pillow to improve the grip.

It really has a good cult following. It's available at Wal-Mart, but not at Target. More expensive at Office Depot or Staples.
