    Try a Stabilo Bionic Worker - very smooth gel pen that makes the G2 feel rough. Or Parker gel refills in the many pens that Parker gel refills will fit including many freebie pens these days.

    Jotters aren't bad. I love the gel refills they have. I have one in my stainless model now actually :D

    I use a Space Pen almost exclusively in my Moleskine, except when other colors are required, and then I use the G2 minis I carry in my laptop bag.

    Do you have an official refill for the Space Pen? I think I bought a compatible one, and that may be why mine leaves spatters in my Moleskines.

    I'm on the original cartridge. It blobbed a little, but as others have indicated, that goes away. They just get better and better

    My favorite pen I have found is any of the Tul pens I really like them. They make several different ones and I like them all.
    you buy them at an office supply store

    I'm not as fond of gel pens as I was a few months ago. On the other hand, I've learned that a fine-point Fisher refill writes very nearly as smoothly as a gel pen, so I've converted all my Fisher pens to fine point and use them in my Piccadilly notebooks.

    A few months ago I was introduced to a pen that works phenomenally in my Moleskin. The Pilot Precise V5 RT. It is great ink and it dries very quickly. I can only get it to smudge if I hit it with my finger within about 1 second of writing.

    I didn't are for the ergonomics but it is interchangeable with any pen that accept the G2. I use the G2 Pro and a G2 Limited.

    I exclusively use Pilot VBall pens in my Moleskines. I love the ultra fine 0.5 nib, they're very fast drying (i'm a lefty) and they don't bleed through the pages.

    I tend to carry around VBall Classics in black, light blue, green and red.

    I tried to use my SpacePen in my moleskin. After a year I still didn't like it. My pen of choice now are G-2's, in .05 and .38.
    I had bad luck with my 3pk of G-2 .38's. One my son messed up, one started spontaneously leaking and the last one seems fine :|
