EhhhWrites smooth however it smudges so easily. I only use G2s when someone gives them to me, I will not buy these myself.
These are really great pens. Smooth and comfortable to write with. I found that the Zebra Z-Grip pen is comparable at a lower price.
These pens may be a bit overpriced, but write wonderfully! They are reliable; you never have to wonder if they will write. They are smooth writing and comfortable to hold in your hand. They come in nice colors and they don't run out very fast. Pilot G-2 pens have always been a fixture in my note-writing. Even through college!
