  1. Jonathan

    This is a really nice pen – I had to buy another as one of my clients grabbed it from me and would not give it back!

  2. Scandinavian king

    When my Zebra ballpoint pen ran out of ink, i rode moped 100 km in total only to get a new Zebra pen! (Not a refill, because i had modified the pen to adopt another brand of refill to make it work somehow again.) I found out that these come gel filled too, so i bought 2 gels and a ballpoint. Gel pens are great, but they seem to come to the end rather soon. I’m about to start my moped again…

  3. Ted

    The Steel G-301 pens are great. My friends like them, too. They don’t take my other pens, just the Zebra pens. The pens are that good.

  4. Charlie

    I love the way these pens write. My only complaint is how fast they run out of ink.

  5. Jeannie

    I love these pens. They SHOULD receive all 5 stars but because I have so much difficulty finding the refills for these gel pens and the refills seem to run out so much faster than any other gel pen I’ve ever had. That is why I still love these better than any other pen, but I’m so disappointed and don’t use as often because of the refills. Can you please do something about this Zebra! Think of the $$ you’re losing due to this in my opinion!

  6. Traci

    These pens are fantastic but they run out of ink very quickly. I’ll have to debate whether to keep buying them. I LOVE how they write until they quit after a couple weeks.

  7. Logan

    Great pen but ink does not last very long about 8 days for how much I wright wish it was the same size as the f402 maybe that would help with more ink

  8. Grace

    I’m a student, and these pens last about 2 days for me. They write very smoothly, and have very pigment ink, but the lifespan is too short for me.

  9. Brent

    As stated by others, these pens write superbly but do have issues. The ink does run out fairly quickly and even more to my dismay is the lack of strength needed for the plastic barrel/grip to break. I’ve had three break while in my hand writing. This is the weak part of the pen. You would think with a steel body, the pen would be more durable, but frustratingly that is a no.

    I’m in the military and love the G-301 Gel because it lays down ink well, is sturdy, and it fits in the pen sleeves on my uniform so well. HOWEVER! It runs out of ink WAY TO FAST! Reminds me of buying a printer at a reasonable price, and then spending a FORTUNE replacing ink cartridges. C’mon Zebra. If you want me as a loyal customer, make changes to the refills. Otherwise, I’m outta here.

  11. Donald

    I love the way the pen writes. My main complaints keeping it from receiving all 5 starts is that the ink does run out fast and the plastic part of the barrel breaks way too easy. I work in a sales office but also do warehouse work so I am pretty tough on pens.

  12. fruitypuffs (verified owner)

    I really like this pen. You don’t have to worry too much about it where I’d kind of worry about the rollerball pen even though it doesn’t seem to bleed through unless you hold it in one spot for a long time. I have it in black and blue ink and I really like it.

  13. Rex’s Texas

    Love the G-301 Pen and the refined look…stainless and sleek, fits perfect in FRC work wear. Adequate enough for all events I attend, no cheapo clear plastic body, nice! FYI, gel ink does not last and I’m tired of chasing refills, sorry. Swapped to a competitor’s .5 mm gel pen and find that I like the smaller tip much better than the look of the 301. Build a G-301 .5 mm Gel with a FULL ink reservoir that lasts more than a week and I’m back in a heart beat…expand the line. All vendors I deal with carry this style of pen and pencil.

  14. Ray Stump (verified owner)

    Excellent for all types of writing conditions.

  15. Just Someone

    I LOVE the F301 Gel Pens. It’s amazing how smooth they are. However they run out of ink so quickly! Mine lasted less than a month. I know gel goes faster than regular ink, but less than a month? Sadly I won’t be buying the gel anytime soon unless you put more ink in the refill. I’ll stick with the regular F301 for now.

  16. Ignacio

    I really love this pen ! It’s most likely my favorite one ever.
    Unfortunately I took it apart and I can’t seem to be able to put it back together. Can someone help me please ?

  17. James

    If you offered 0.4mm tip (and even smaller too!) I would be all over these. Ultra-fine precision and low smudging are my two favourite qualities that gel pens generally seem to offer! Thanks.

      Thanks for your feedback!

  18. Clarence

    I share the same opinion as the rest of reviewers on this pen. I love writing with it, but the gel ink drains way too quickly! Unfortunately, due to the amount of writing that I do, I can’t sustain the cost of buying refills each time it drains, so Zebra, if you are reading this review, please take this into consideration.

    As you have heard from the other reviewers, you are starting to lose legions of fans based on this fact.

    We would appreciate your reply on this to at least let your fans know that you have listened to us.

    Hope that you will take this into consideration.

      Hi – so glad to hear you love our G-301! We are working really hard to try to improve the refill size for this pen – your voice has been heard!

  19. Jackie

    I have used these pens for years and love them! It is only the last 2 packages that I bought that run out of ink in no time. You have changed the refills for them as I have the older style pens and a bunch of refills that fit them, that I bought a couple years ago and they no longer fit in the pens. The old ones lasted months.

    • Zebra Pen Canada

      Hi Jackie – thanks for leaving us a comment. The G-301 gel ink pens have always had a different refill than the original F-301 ball point pen. As with all gel vs. ball point pens they do tend to write out quicker, mainly due to the different ink type and smooth lay down of ink.

  20. Amma Poku-Dapaah

    Very nice pen! I love nice pens, and appreciate a good one. Very smooth, nice lines, wrote immediately and consistently. Only drawback: very little ink. It lasted less than a week.

  21. James

    Awesome as usual with Zebra gel ink. Lays down a dark line effortlessly and dramatically smoother than the ballpoint F301. Doesn’t lay down quite as much ink and bleeds less than the Sarasa pens but with the same perfect feel. It does however absolutely shred through ink, but the $2.15 refills are absolutely worth it, even if they could be a bit bigger like the JF refill. If you write a lot and hate buying refills then get the F301 or one of the Zmulsion pens- they’ll last twice as long. Other companies who I won’t name but rhyme with schmilot will have you pay almost 5$ per refill for the same liquid ink pens, and the Zebra is definitely not a compromise on performance. I end up writing a lot for school and work, and I won’t use anything other than Zebras.

      Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback!

  22. J. Couture

    I agree with almost everyone here. I LOVE the G301. I cannot possibly fathom WHY making a larger refill for the pen is such an engineering impossibility. It’s a pen! You’re not launching a satellite to a distant planet! I would love this pen even more if I didn’t have to replace the cartridge weekly. Figure it out….

  23. Monica

    Love these pens. They write incredibly smoothly, and are very durable and sleek-looking. Can’t say I ‘ve had problems with the plastic like others have. I’ve had a pack of the black ones for over 2 years and the ink level is still going strong. I had to buy another pack for my work term and I’ve done a lot of writing so far, and it’s still fine. Thinking about buying some red F-301’s because I’m now loyal to Zebra over any other pen brand.

  24. Victoria Robinson

    These pens are awesome. I have always used zebra and I love all of them. The gel is amazing, however if you could make the blue alittle lighter in colour that would be great. Black and blue are kinda hard to distinguish.

  25. Victoria Robinson

    Absolutely love this pen, definitely my fave. Would be nice if the blue ink was a little lighter, kinda hard to tell it’s blue and not black. Purple ink would be awesome too for this pen. Then I would buy a lot more. Thanks.

  26. Isaac

    Quite simply the best pen I have ever owned. No competition.
