Zebra JLV-0.5 Sarasa Dry Gel Pen Refill

The JLV-0.5 is the dye-based gel ink refill sold in the Sarasa Dry pen. This is one of Zebra’s DRYJELL inks, which are dye-based and said to dry up to 85% faster than a traditional link. This makes the refill ideal for left-handed writes as it is highly smudge- and smear-resistant.

The Sarasa Dry is one of the best gel pens so this refill is, as you might suspect, quite good. The JLV combines very good color with fast drying and a smooth writing experience. It is not prone to blobbing and is very smear-resistant.

The JLV-0.5 is the 0.5 mm version of this refill. This is probably the most popular size in the JLV line, as the 0.7 mm is not commonly seen. The 0.4 mm version is good for journals and writing there space is tight, but the 0.5 mm has some extra smoothness and color pop that many people will appreciate, especially lefties who can benefit from the extra smooth experience.
