This pen will turn your world upside-down!

This pen will turn your world upside-down!

The new-in Zebra X-701 pen works perfectly in extreme writing conditions. It survives temperatures from -34°C to 121°C, writing upside-down, even underwater! And it writes like an absolute dream, I love it. Its 0.7mm fine point nib isn't something I'd usually go for - I'm into broad nibs - but the light-as-a-feather writing experience has really brought me round and encourages me to shrink my handwriting; saving paper. Its military-grade durability means you can use the handy loop at the end of the barrel to attach it to lanyards or key rings risk-free.

This pen is a delight! Maybe it's just personal preference, but I have never felt so at-one with a writing instrument. As it's a new model, its refills are only available in black; but Zebra have been spotted discussing adding new colours on their US website with reviewers (starting with blue). Some reviewers are a little displeased with the relatively lower amount of metal present in the pen's composition - however its body is no longer cold to the touch, and its weight remains tilted to the heavier side (just how I like it)! Just remember that due to the pressurised engineering, don't leave the nib extended while not in use. Retract the tip to remove the pressure.

I'm probably going to use mine to death - that might take a very long time, considering the pen's military grade. Good job it's refillable!
