Really nice pens,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pilot G2 Retractable Rollerball Gel Pen Pack of 3 - Blue (Office Product)
My favourite pens over the past few years have been the PaperMate Flexgrip Ultra Paper Mate Flexgrip Retractable Ball Pen Black - Pack of 5 but the last pack that i bought didn't last very long, and there seemed to be 1" of ink left that was just unusable. They are still my favourite basic ballpoint pen, but the other thing i find with them is that they can make your fingers quite sore, with the ridges on them.
So....a few months ago, I decided to try the Pilot G-2 pens. They are gel pens, so don't last as long as a ballpoint, but they are really nice to write with....very smooth, no leaking or gloopy bits on the tip, but the best bit for me is that they don't show through the pages either in my diary or my lovely new Black 'n' Red notebook Oxford Black n' Red A4 Wirebound Hardback Notebook
The only disadvantages are that they really don't last that long, and don't actually appear to have much ink in them even when they are brand new (see photo of the 4 new ones that I've just bought). In the interests of being eco-friendly, you can also buy refills, but I was shocked at the cost of them! The refills cost more than the pens (although the pens I bought were on special offer).
