Zebra Black Z-Grip Max Gel Pen

Cons: not worth the price
This last order was a huge disappointment. The pens are now being manufactured in Mexico and the quality of the product has declined severely. The pens run out of ink quickly. When using the pen, it often gets stuck and will not retract. Although the quality went down, the price did not follow.

Not worth it

Cons: can't refill
I made the mistake of buying these pens without knowing you can't buy refills for them. I was at an airport, I needed a pen, I grabbed the package, and left. Now that I'm almost through the second pen in the two-pack, I came here to see if I could buy a refill for them but I can't according to the product description. While it's decent ink and a good feel in my hand, it's just a total waste of money they can't be refilled.

Pitiful ink flow

I bought a 4-pack of Z-Grip Max and a 5-pack of Sarasas to compare side by side. Although my large hands prefer the grip of the Z-Grip Max, its ink flow is pitiful, especially when compared to the Sarasa. I tested all 4 Z-Grip Max pens in the package, and maintaining a steady flow of ink was a struggle; even the ball-point and roller ball pens I own seriously outperform the Z-Grip Max.
There's no competition; buy a Zebra Sarasa.

Not worth it

Cons: not a long lasting pen
I was disappointed in this pen. I have only been able to get about 3 weeks worth of writing out any of the pens and I ordered a dozen. I would not recommend this pen.
