If you are in the market for a new rollerball pen or refill, you are probably looking to highlight the single most desirable feature of rollerball pens: their smoothness. If you want smoothness approaching that of a fountain with the practicality of a ballpoint, then a rollerball is for you. Might as well choose the right one!
If you have an older model Zebra F-701 pen then you might have realized that the pen is almost entirely metal, but there is one prominent plastic part. Meanwhile the cheaper Zebra F-402 uses a metal component for the single piece where the F-701 does not! This video explains how to combine the two into a fantastic sub-$15 EDC pen.
Have a Lamy pen but confused about the refill you need to fit it? It’s very easy to know which refill you need because Lamy makes so few refills!

Do you have a Lamy rollerball? There are only two options: the Lamy M63 and M66. The M63 is for capped pens while the M66 is for capless pens. That’s all you need to know except for if your pen has a cap or not!
Here is a list of Lamy rollerballs, if you’d rather just identify your rollerball pen and refill that way…

If you have a Lamy ballpoint pen then your job is even easier, because Lamy only makes one full-sized ballpoint refill: the M16. There is also the Lamy M22, but that’s for small pens.
Lamy ballpoint pens that use the M16 include…

The tiny Lamy Pico and Lamy Scribble ballpoint both use the tiny M22 refill.
