Pilot G2 – Is Orange Better?

Pilot G2 Orange .7mm

If you have seen any of the other posts here about the ever popular Pilot G2 pen, you will know that the thing is kind of a mystery to me, and certainly is not one of my favorite pens.  When presented with the opportunity to get some new pens for review from our friends at Jetpens, I coudln't help but see if the Orange Pilot G2 might offer … [Read more...]

This Pens Ink is Baffling to Me – The Pilot G2

The Pilot G2 Pens Ink is Baffling to Me

  I don't think I've made any secret of the fact that I'm really not on board with those who think that the Pilot G2 is the best pen and in fact, I've been pretty harsh in my criticism of it here in the past.  I found something odd the other day though when I started using a G2 by accident, and something about this pens ink really surprised me when I took a second to look closer. … [Read more...]

Pilot Bottle to Pen (B2P) Recycled Water Bottle Pen

The Pilot B2P Water Bottle Pen

These new earth friendly pens from Pilot called the Bottle to Pen (B2P) get their interesting name because they are made from 89% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.  Seems like a cool idea from Pilot to be earth friendly, so I thought I'd pick some of them up to take a closer look at and share with you. … [Read more...]

Pilot Better Ballpoint Pen, Really?

Pilot Better Retractable Ballpoint Pen Grip

Pilot says they have a Better Retractable Ballpoint Pen, and in my mind, whenever someone has to tell you how good they are it instantly raises a flag.  With the appropriate caution flags raised, I clicked the "Add to cart" button on Amazon for the Pilot Better Ballpoint Pen, and patiently waited for this "better" pen to arrive. … [Read more...]

Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto Lumio 4 Color Multi Pen

The Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto Lumio 4 Color Multi Pen Side View

One of my favorite mult-pens is the Pilot Coleto, which is basically the multi-pen version of Pilot's Hi-Tec-C line.  It has many color and size options, and even with up to 5 refills in it, it manages to not be bulky and awkward looking.  Naturally when I saw the sleek-looking  Lumio body style of the Coleto I couldn't resist grabbing it from JetPens to try out. … [Read more...]

Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto 5 Color Multi Pen

Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto 5 Color Multi Pen Plunger Tops

A while back I reviewed the Pilot Hi-Tec-C 3 Color Multi-Pen, and dint even realize until a few weeks ago that there was now a five color version available at JetPens.  Considering that I've always been a big fan of the Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto 3 color version I figured that I really needed to try out this larger version. … [Read more...]

Pilot FriXion Erasable Gel Ink Pen

Pilot FriXion Erasable Gel Ink Pen Capped

Every time I check out the list of top selling gel ink pens on Amazon.com, I see the Pilot FriXion Gel Ink pens near the top 5 but I've never actually tried any out until recently.  I've seen lots of reviews (here and here) of these around online, so I know this might not be new to many of you.  You will notice that in my link to Amazon above, that is for the assorted color pack, however I was feeling cheap and I only picked up a two pack of the black. … [Read more...]

Pilot Acroball Ballpoint 7mm Review

Pilot Acroball Ballpoint 7mm

With my last post on the Pilot G2, @dowdyism from the PenAddict (click the link for his review) left a comment that reminded me I had never reviewed the Pilot Acroball 7mm ballpoint pen that I picked up from JetPens a few months ago.  I figured now was a good time to do the review before I forget again. … [Read more...]

Is the Pilot G2 the Best Pen

Pilot G2 Gel Ink Pen

The Pilot G2 Gel Ink Pen is one of the most popular pens out there according to various sources.  If you believe their own packaging it is the #1 selling pen in America.   It is currently in the #1 spot on Amazon's list of Top Pens and Refills and is #1 on the Amazon list of Top Rollerballs as well.  Personally, I've never been convinced that it was the best pen out there.  This seems to go against commonly accepted opinion among people who enjoy their … [Read more...]
