I have reviewed a few Zebra's here at Good Pens in the past. Here's the list and some have even made my top tens. So, I was pretty stoked when Shoplet.com sent over a pile of the little fellas for review. I was pretty familiar with this line of office supplies and Zebras and I knew they had a gel version (G 301) but had never written with one. I like this line of pens, they look good in combination. Sort of how matching pens and pencils should look..5 mechanical "set" that looks nice. These Zebras are a little bit lighter than I remember mainly because they are not solid metal. There's enough plastic on the front and the back to lighten the load.
Marty. It's pretty clear, Gel is Gel, BP is ballpoint and 0.5 is the pencil. What I did not know until I looked in the product guide that they also make a Fountain Pen. What? Why didn't I know this? (The search has commenced.)
I will get the winner of the August contest out and change the rules a little for September. The Tumblr is getting some good stuff on it and there's always Facebook if you like that sort of thing.
