In 2019 Zebra released the X-701 as an a rugged, outdoor-friendly pen. It was highly expected but failed to impress most buyers once it was released. Easy-glide ink brings top of the line writing performance to your everyday needs, like note-taking, document signing, filling out forms and making listsThe ink is great and rarely blots, but it can’t write on all surfaces, and it may skip if you try writing on the wall or other unusual angles. If you want to be able to write on any kind of paper, surface, condition, and angle, we recommend you get a Fisher Space pen with pressurized ink. Zebra F-701 Pros and Cons Pros
I've had two of these and like everyone agree that it is well built. If you fiddle with pens whilst in meetings or thinking and unscrew the tip a little too frequently then the thread starts to wear away. Start by removing the tip, the rubber grip, and the ink. At this point you will notice the steel tube simply protects the plastic insides, and to get the metal peice we want off we just need to remove the steel tube from the plastic tube. Have you carried the F-701? Did you feel the need to upgrade at all? We’d love to hear your thoughts on this EDC classic in the comments below.This pen looks great, I like the stainless steel industrial look. The Zebra F-701 writes so well. The ink flows smoothly, and the fine 0.8mm point tip makes all handwriting look clearer and more legible. We even like it more than extra fine tech pens, which are delicate and can start skipping if you drop them. Zebra F-701 Knurled Grip The stainless steel body isn’t just all style, other. From a practical perspective, it’s easier to sanitize than plastic, and it’s corrosion-resistant. Since I spray almost everything with alcohol now because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this is definitely a big and healthy plus. Post-release the pen was criticized for its use of plastic components — the grip section in particular which not only is made of plastic but has a plastic-y feel to it that F-701 fans disliked. People have also noted flaking paint on the coated steel body and the large amount of plastic used in the pen’s construction (both inside and out).
