I want the old refills.

Comments about Parker� Ballpoint Pen Refill; Fine Point, Black Ink:
I have used the same model of Parker pen since 1979. I will not use another brand, nor model (I have to get them on the secondary market, until they relaunch my model.)However, since they started manufacturing the Quink-flow refill, made in France, I only get 20-23 days of use from each refill. I have never had this problem in the past 30-odd years, and it is very disheartening.The ink and ball qualities are FINE, but the longevity or capacity is pathetic. In October, when the last of my non-Quink-flow stock ran out, I purchased one refill in store. After less than three weeks, I returned it, thinking it was defective. After another three weeks, it was dry, so I ordered online. I got the same results.Each time, whether purchased in store or online, I cannot get over 23 days of ink. I am the bookkeeper for my husband's family-owned retail store, so I write checks, fill in forms, document orders, and a few other manual deeds. I do not write novels, I do not write inspection reports, nor do I draw elaborate doodles in the margins. I use my pen for work.I want Parker to change this product. Either fill the cartridge more, or change the formula or design of the cartridge, whatever is causing this short life. I have been keeping my empties, dated with time of use, and will send them to Parker, eventually, so they will be aware of the issue.Until then, I am buying by the half dozen.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

While selecting this product, I searched the packaging to find the phrase "Parker Jotter compatable" or something similar, but There was no such wording. I went by the memory of what the refill looked like (the Parker Jotter pen has been on the market for a long time) as I haven't needed a refill for a long time and wanted to get the right one the first time. It appears that I was right, but I wasn't sure. It turned out to be correct. Maybe there is only this one refill available, I don't know.The Parker Jotter pen is the best writing instrument as far as I am concerned.

About Me Quality Oriented
I've always preferred high-quality pens with replaceable cartridges to throw-away pens. As a left-hander, I need a high quality ink to prevent smearing. I've used Parker pens for over thirty years.
Excellant refill for another make of pen

Parker Ballpoint Pen Refill/Fine-Great

I've always ranked Parker as second best in pens, behind Sheaffer & Pilot. But this refill fits the bill as first rate. Smooth and precise, never a smear, glides well. Recommended

It is a good refill but I would like a larger ink supply, i.e., fatter refill.

a real pen for people who don't erase

It is a shame that today's computer oriented people don't know how to write.
Best refill yet for Parker
from Tulsa, OK
This refill feels more like a gel pen than a ball point.
