    Anyone else have issues with thr gel inserts? I was on my second refill out of a two pack and it barely wants to right unless I am at an extreme angle.

    I've had some refills dry up m if you don't write with the gels for a while
    If yours stop writing call up Parker and complain.

    I'm annoyed that Parker gel refills ooze a clear viscous liquid that coats the refill and makes it difficult to deploy and retract it.

    Yeah I've written letters and called Parker. All they do is send you more of the same refills for free.

    I saw that happening on a bunch of my pens a couple of years ago or so. I ended up going through all my pens and pulling any Parker gel refills as well as purging extras I had stocked up on. Just not worth getting further trouble IMHO! You can also find a lot of discussion about this over at Fountain Pen Network: http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/

    The good news is, the so-called "Parker" refills have become a standard size and configuration, available from many makers, not just Parker. Schmidt Easy Flow are particularly well spoken of. I also picked up a pack from Levenger that were reasonably priced and performed well.
    I don't think by the way that I'd leave that ooze inside a pen. If nothing else eventually you could reasonably expect it to get gummy ... :eek:

    L'chaim!

    So as to not double-post, over yonder is the Jotter I got (relatively) recently.

    I got one when they were announced as available at Goldspot in October, however, going by Only Arrows' post, seems like they had been around a while (at least 3+ months)...

    :cool:
