The Zebra G-750 is a retractable gel pen from the Zebra “7” series, which includes the company’s famous F-701 ballpoint. As of November 2019 the pen is not yet released but has appeared in some of Zebra’s marketing materials.
The G-750 is sold with a 0.5 mm or 0.7 mm tip size refill with Zebra’s quick-drying gel ink. The specific refill is Zebra’s JK (88112) gel refill, the same used in the G-301 and G-450, but not the larger Sarasa refill used in the G-350.
The pen is all black, with all the hardware being matte black. Being part of the 7 series means that the pen is entirely metal. This is a clear sign that Zebra learned from the poor feedback people had when the X-701 ruggedized pen used a plastic grip. That pen has largely been a disappointment and similar design cues would not have been well received in a pen that is in some ways seen as a successor to the F-701.
F-701 vs. G-750
If you expected a black version of the F-701 — something that fans of the pen have been wanting for years — the G-750 is not the pen you had hoped for.
The G-750 is a gel pen that uses the same tiny gel refill as the G-402, not the F series ballpoint refill found in the F-701. The ballpoint refill lasts much longer and writes on almost any surface, where gel inks are really only for writing on paper.
The G-750 has an updated design that is much more modern looking than the outdated (but still highly functional!) F-701. The G-750 is a good deal larger as well, with a size that is closed to that of the Rotring Rapid Pro then smaller, everyday carry style pens like the F-701 .
