I received my first Zebra Sarasa Stick from fellow pen addict Bryan in Japan, and it has been a very enjoyable writing experience. When I saw that JetPens started stocking this pen - and in loads of colors and sizes to boot - I was anxious to add a few 0.3mm models to my collection. A few clicks later, and new pens were on their way!
I ordered two - one black ink, and the other purple. I broke out the purple first, and it was fine for a while, then it got a little skippy. I set it down in favor of the black to do the review, and the black was cruising right along until it hit a dry patch about halfway through the page. It only lasted for two words and then was right back to normal, and didn't happen again. I didn't stop writing with it in an effort to see how long it would go before picking up again. Fortunately it wasn't too long. I haven't run into this issue with my 0.4mm version, and I'm wondering if I just didn't get these pens warmed up enough before putting them to the test. I do run across pens from time to time that need a little more ink flow and friction before settling into a good writing groove. Maybe these fall into that category. I like the look and feel of this pen a lot, so I will give them a little more time before making a final decision.
Has anyone else experienced this with this particular pen?
