If you've had a chance to use the medium (about .5-.7mm) F-refill line of Zebra pens (F-301, this pen, F-402, and others) you'll know that they have some of the nicest tip feel available in ballpoints. The F-402 is a beefier case for this refill that has a fair distance between tip and rubber grip that may not be ideal for those who really like to hold really far down on the pen.

The rubber grip is a little larger than I'd use for really long writing sessions (3+ hour classes/meetings where you're the notetaker) where the lighter and slimmer F-301 *Ultra* really shines.

The pens do prefer to write with a few sheets beneath the writing sheet (or a good semi-firm leather writing pad) and probably would not be comfortable for any period of time if used on a single sheet on a standard clipboard. From time to time the ball in the pen can get a nick that can cause it to skip - but I have only been able to do this by abusing the tip (using it to open something, or push a recessed button, etc), but this is fairly rare and does not cause large gaps in most writing.

The refills do not fail gracefully - they go & go and then fade significantly where you might get another paragraph of text out of them before they are completely dead. I think this is advantageous because you can really use all the ink, but if you've used the pen a lot, be sure to have a spare as it doesn't give you real warning it's going to go. The refill is usually see-through, so if you unscrew the pen you can see how much ink is left.

So - if you want an incredibly smooth writing experience in a rubber-gripped, tough, metal-bodied pen, click the order button. If you want something a little slimmer/lighter that retains the rubber-grip and has a plastic clip, the F-301 Ultra is your pen.

The Ink leaks or runs out of plastic tub

I really love this pen, but after three to weeks of usage, the Ink dries or runs down the plastic tube and it is no longer a Retractable Ballpoint Pen. Why?

I needed a pen where the click button didn't stick up very far since I was putting in my breast pocket. This pen works great and look great.

      Best Pen Ever

      By Micah

      from California

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Zebra® F-402® Retractable Ballpoint Pen, Fine Point, Black, 2/Pack:

      This pen is very comfortable to hold with the rubber grip. In addition to the good looks, it writes very smoothly and has a very precise feel to it. Every once in awhile I run into someone with one and have to check my pocket to make sure it is not mine which I carry every day.

      I had used the Zebra F301 for years and had gone through over a dozen refills. I always thought it was a great pen. However, now that I have used the F402 for over two years, I much prefer it. Both pens take the same refills which are available in black or blue ink.

      My Favorite Ballpoint

      Comments about Zebra® F-402® Retractable Ballpoint Pen, Fine Point, Black, 2/Pack:

      These pens are great. They work very well, they are sturdy and they aren't that expensive. You can get some Zebra models that are fancier but in my opinion these are the best out of all of them. I love pens, I write all the time and I'm willing to spend good money on them but I also lose them all of the time. Because they aren't that expensive it doesn't hurt so bad if I lose one. They write smooth consistently and they are a good weight, pretty heavy for their small size and I like that. I'm always buying new pens to try out but I always return to these trusted pens.
