One way to draw a zig zag line is to first draw a straight line. Select the line and choose Effect > Distort & Transform > Zig Zag. You could also draw zig zag lines using the Pen tool.  If you are drawing the zig zag lines with the Pencil tool, that is a freehand tool and the lines do tend to get rounded, even if you change the settings for that tool.
