Zebra Airfit Jell Ballpoint Pen


There are great reviews of the Zebra Airfit Jell Gel Ink pen, such at the Pen Addict, and now here's a look at the Airfit ballpoint pen. The Airfit ballpoint feels great in the hand and the 0.7mm ink cartridge has one of the smoothest ink releases I've ever felt. It is more like a gel ink pen than a ballpoint, no skips or blotches and the oil-based ink doesn't streak. For a 0.7mm the line is very fine, and the blue ink gets lost on the Doane Paper so that a black ink cartridge might be better. But it's a great looking pen, and the clip opens and closes like an alligator clip so that attaching it to a pocket is easy. I really like the yellow color, as well.

JetPens carries the Airfit Gel Ink Pen and Mechanical Pencil but not the Ballpoint Pen. As I'm usually more inclined to use a gel ink I'll be looking at those in different colors.

  1. After reading this review, I had to ask myself when I started thinking of the workhorse ballpoint pen as the lowly ballpoint pen. Back when I was a youngster, I preferred the 39-cent Lindy pen to the 19-cent Bic. Clearly, I thought there was a difference among ballpoints then. Now I'm using a sturdy, retractable promo pen I got from my local library. When the ink's exhausted---well, that's it for a pen that's served me pretty well without my thinking about it.

    Thanks for the review, PB.
