Pilot G2 Pens Point Sizes – Most of my writing has been done with the G2 Pilot from middle school, when I didn’t know any better
I was asked by Arch Drafting Supply via Twitter what I thought of the Pilot G2 pen. My frothing reaction was “That’s THE worst”, followed by admitting that the .38mm Pilot G2 was inexplicably not an affront to human decency/everything beautiful in the world. But I still haven’t done a comprehensive review of the Pilot G2 line. It’s time we changed that.
Pilot G2 Pens Point Sizes
I have laid down pretty much all the harshness I can in my previous post reviewing the .38mm Pilot G2 – the design has reached the pinnacle of boredom. Can any other pen claim this title from the Pilot G2 through its innovative use of the most inconvenient and unattractive design techniques known to modern man? Not interested. An endlessly boring design is a classic that will stand the test of time and still be as boring in 20 years as it is today.
The Best Fine Tip Gel Pens
There are three different design elements between models in different sizes. One is the color of the barrel; two large tip sizes (1.0mm and 0.7mm) have clear smoky barrels, and two small tip sizes (0.5mm and 0.38mm) have clear barrels.
Pilot G2: as exciting as a roller coaster, provided the roller coaster only goes 1km/h and never leaves the station until it gives up and goes down.
The second element: text on the clip – gold for 1.0mm and 0.7mm, silver for 0.5mm, white for 0.38mm.

And your last item: the color of the plastic on the tip (something most people probably won’t notice, because who refills a Pilot G2 when it runs out? I’m pretty sure everyone just throws them away) is different for each tip size. But enough about the design. What matters is what’s inside. In fairness, I went out and bought this pen brand new for this review, hoping that the abysmal quality control would finally break in my favor, unlike the entire 0.5mm and 0.7mm Pilot G2 I was going to use in my last job.
When people say they love the Pilot G2, it’s like teenagers saying they’ll love each other forever. They simply do not know what is good.
Fortunately, I didn’t have a completely frustrating experience that caused me to throw the pen across the room while writing this review (this happened a few times with some previous G2 pens). All pens do what pens are supposed to do, which is write.
Pilot G2 Metallics .7mm Point Ink Pens
0.5mm is my favorite. Something feels unstable, distracting when I write with it. 0.7mm arrived at the limit of acceptable: perfectly fine if I have to write something below now, but if I have time and opportunity to find another pen to write with, I will. The two extremes, 0.38mm and 1.0mm, turned out to be my favorites.
Having such a boldly large rolling ball makes the 1.0mm the smoothest of the G2s. My writing looks awful and messy, but I don’t get any resistance from the pen (one of my biggest problems). And the performance of 0.38mm is not surprising; We already know that one is a favorite, with a sleek, precise and consistent line.
I doubt I’ll ever go out of my way to make sure I have a Pilot G2 model in my daily arsenal, but the 0.38mm and 1.0mm would be nice in an office drawer, and this pen could easily be in the spotlight. they probably won’t be thrown out of one of the many pen mugs in my house.

No links, because you can find this pen anywhere. Maybe also shops and bakeries. They are ubiquitous. It’s easy to see why the Pilot G2 is one of America’s best-selling pens. With smooth, vibrant ink and comfortable rubber parts for hours of stress-free writing, the G2 is the perfect gateway to the world of high-quality Japanese gel pens.
Waterproof pens and inks show little or no smearing or discoloration when exposed to water. Water-resistant pens and inks may smudge or color when exposed to water, but remain legible under most conditions. Water resistance can vary depending on the paper used and how long the ink is allowed to dry.
Q: Can I use this pen with a refill that has a different tip size than the pen?
Pilot G2 Premium Gel Ink Pens, Fine Point, Asst, 20 Pack, 995510528
This pen is compatible with all refills listed in the refills link / Recommended section, regardless of nib size.
It’s very soft and the color is good but… it doesn’t dry quickly because my journal is full of spots and smudges. The Uni-Ball Signo RT 0.38mm is my weapon of choice for this pen.
This pen is not bad. But I bought it with a Uni-ball Signo DX UM-151 Gel Ink Pen (also 0.38mm) and I found it to be better, so I don’t think I’ll use it much.

Unlike this, the Union ball does not stop making a line when you lean slightly to the side, only suddenly produces a thick one when you push a little harder or tilt it back upright. This pencil is a bit fiddly, in comparison – it doesn’t have much in between, it either makes a line or not.
I think it should be a pretty good pen for writing, actually, but not for illustration (which is what I bought it for). But the Uni-ball is a better pen, good for writing and illustration and the price is almost the same…so I recommend buying it.
I’ve used a few of these (but not bought them from here) and honestly The ink smudges pretty easily and it seems like when I get to about half of the ink tank I don’t know if the bullet pops out or what, but I’m left with a needle sticking out of the nib and the pen is useless. It really puts me off this pen.
Pilot G2 Premium Refillable & Retractable Rolling Ball Gel Pens Bold Point
It has a clear line that lends itself well to fine print, which I do. I make notes in the teaching material and to get as much space as possible in the margin I often write less than what is written in the front of a quarter. Although this pen writes quite cleanly without smudging on regular notebook paper, it smudged very easily and badly on the “semi-gloss” workbook. If you’re going to write on a paper like that, like annotating a textbook, I wouldn’t recommend this particular pen.
The pen itself is very smooth, but when it comes to highlighting, it smudges a lot. To prevent this, I want to highlight first, but this is a tedious process, so I decided not to use this pen at all. I have been on the kick of the new Pilot pen. Somewhere I had gotten a “20% off your total purchase at Staples” coupon, so I went to the mall a few miles from my house with the intention of picking up another pack of Razor Points. Staples doesn’t have these, but I left with a few new daily writers that I use regularly, including this Pilot G2 Limited.
The G2 Limited is meant to be an “upgrade” for those wanting to step up from the G2 Pilot’s plastic stylus. Like the Pentel Energel “Alloy” model for Energel running. They are too cold. Staples run out.
Pilot G2 Premium Refillable And Retractable Gel Ink Pens, Fine Point (0.7mm), 7 Colors, 8 Count (16603)
Pilot advertises the G2 as the “#1 selling gel,” which might be self-promotion, but it might as well be true, because these pens are everywhere. Pilot has released several versions of the pen, including the “G2 Mini,” “G2 Pro,” “G2 Professional,” and even a charity line that includes a breast cancer fundraising edition. The model that caught my eye, was the silver G2 Limited, which I was able to get for about $8.50, after my rebate.
Don’t get me wrong, this is an $8 pen. It is made of plastic. There is some looseness at the joints where the parts fit together, but not enough to vibrate, which is the point where it would bother me. the bank is pretty solid and retracts / retracts the tip without sticking or rattling. pen comes with .7 mm G2 black refill. I usually like 0.5mm refill blue (or even “Ultra Fine” 0.38mm either G2 or Juice line), but I need a black pen at the moment and I have actually come to enjoy 0.7 mm. . It is incredibly smooth, leaves a very dark line, and in a week of use I have not seen any of the “blobbing” that people complain about with a 0.7mm tip.
A comparison with some other standard gel pens in 0.38mm, 0.4mm and 0.5mm. I usually go for narrower lines than the standard 0.7mm, but this line is clean enough that it is more than useful.
