    The copper pointed object is my Tactile Turn Slider that arrived earlier this week. Writes and carries nicely. :D

    My first foray into "quality" pens and so far I'm impressed. I never thought I would pay more than a couple of bucks for a pen, but I'm glad I did. Writing with these is an enjoyable experience...now I know what I've been missing. Retro 51 Betsy and Hex-O-Matic.......

    twin63: when it comes to ballpoint pens (regardless of whether the refill inside is traditional bp ink or gel ink), keep in mind the writing experience is almost equally due to the refill itself and to the pen body. Ink flow, drying, etc., is clearly due to the refill. The ergonomics, feel in the hand, etc., is clearly due to the design of the pen body. Once you find a pen body you like you can evaluate different refills (usually many will fit the pen body) until you find the optimal combination.

    Have fun and keep on writing!

    That is why I am a happy camper! The Retrakt (which I have had more than a few comments about) runs G2 refills which I find to be perfect for my needs!

    It was on sale, plus a $5 coupon for subscribing to the newsletter, and free shipping. $50 shipped is a great deal!

    Will use with my favorite refill, Itoya Gel.

    My wife found a Pilot G2 Limited Metallic Body Gel Pen in Purple in her Xmas stocking. We both love gel pens and she mentioned a few times having something other then the "generic" gel pen for her work. She also didn't want anything too expensive that if she lost it or someone swiped it, she wouldn't be upset. She wanted a clicky (some caps don't seem to fit on the end of pen very well) and some color on the body.

    I still haven't moved past the G2 gel pen myself. I don't need another hobby to spend my cash on. :) A well spent $11 imo.

    My wife ordered a Pilot s20 pen for my birthday. I'll give a report on it in a little over a month...
