Comments about Pilot� G2 Retractable Gel Ink Pens; Extra-Fine, Black:
This has been my favorite pen for years. Both in my work and in personal use it has always given me great satisfaction. I have also been pleased by the pleasant reactions and compliments I have received from people I've let use it to sign or to jot notes. (And I have always kept my eye on my pen and made sure I got it back when I have lent it out.) People often comment on how smoothly and clearly it writes. My only quibble is that the gel ink smears if it is handled too soon after use, but that is the nature of gel and liquid inks. I am surprised at writing this extended comment but pleased at one of the little things in life that function so satisfactorily.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
