Pros:Smooth Writing

Cons:Ink can smear

The Bottom Line: I love these pens. Would recommend them to everyone.


How many of us find a pen that we “LOVE” and then someone takes it away never to find the same pen again? I have that problem all the time in my house, or maybe I should say I “DID”. Now it seems everyone in my house has the same Favorite Pen and no one wants to take it away never to be seen again. So here is the story of the Pen…

What and Why, Who and How?

Pilot Bold Point G-2 is the new pen in our house. What it is a new Retractable, refillable Gel Ink Rolling Ball pen that comes in several colors. The options are Blue, Black, Red, Green, Pink, Turquoise, Purple, Burgundy, Orange, Hunter Green and Navy Blue. My local Walgreen’s only carries Blue, Red, Black and Purple. Each Pilot Bold Point G-2 package comes with 2 pens priced around $2.99 a package. I have seen some stores mark them down from time to time, but not too often.

Pilot Bold Point G-2 are Refillable – No more throwing the pen away once the ink runs out. This is a big thing in our house. How many of us have spent 5 minutes going through all the pens in the pen jar seeing which ones still write or which ones we need to throw away. The refills run about $2.35 and can be found at our local Office Depot or online at www.pilotpen.com.

Pilot Bold Point G-2 has a Contoured Rubber Grip for easy writing. The Gripper is the same color as the pen. The Gripper is very comfortable when writing and the packaging says it has a Finger-Friendly Design.

Pilot Bold Point G-2 is Retractable. Too me this is a great asset to a pen. I lose more caps and then the pen dries out. Not on this one. Just press the top and the pen retracts back inside. Press the top again and your pen pops out. Couldn’t be any easier.

Pilot Bold Point G-2 has a Gel Ink formula for writing with. It has a clear barrel on the pen so you can see how much ink is left in the pen. The ink is very smooth writing. The packaging states that the ink is Smear – Proof, however I differ with this statement. It depends what type of paper you are using the ink on. If writing on paper or a notepad no problem, it seems to dry immediately. However, when I have used in my checkbook for a check the ink DOES NOT dry and takes a minute. So my solution is not to use in the checkbook!

Overall I think Pilot Bold Point G-2 is one of the best pens on the market today. No skipping, nice and smooth writing. Fits nicely in your hand. Economically priced. Has dual packaging. Comes in multiple colors and options.
