Therefore, if the Schmidt Easyflow 9000 Pen doesn’t tickle your fancy, then you might want to take a look at its closest alternative. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you, the Pilot G2 brand of high-quality pens. With 25+ color options, multiple barrel styles, and up to 4 different point sizes, you can always count on any Pilot G2 Pen to satisfy almost all of your writing/drawing needs.

Are Pilot G2 Pens nearly as good as Schmidt Easyflow 9000 Pens?

As I already mentioned, many pen experts have ranked the Pilot G2 Pen among the best of the best, which makes it the perfect alternative for the Schmidt Easyflow 9000 pen. Everything, from the pens’ features to their eye-catching design, is bound to tickle your fancy whichever way you choose to look at it. The same applies to its competitive prices.

You can also count on your Pilot G2 pen’s durability. Just like the authentic Schmidt Easyflow 9000 Pens, the top-tier Pilot G2 Pens are both water and acid-resistant. The brand also boasts of its archival quality; which, in layman terms, means that it can stay intact without being used for up to three years.

Another incredible feature that makes the Pilot G2 Pen a more suitable alternative to the Schmidt Easyflow 9000 Pen than its closest competitors is its ink economy. The latter was proven by Alex Lee, a writing enthusiast who used a Pilot G2 Pen to write a total of 1166 sentences before depleting the inkwell. The latter number translated to a whopping 37 pages of a standard-size notebook.

The silicon paste found in all Pilot G2 Pen inkwells helps in two ways; one, it keeps the ink from drying, and two, prevents the ink from flowing backward and creating air pockets that’ll eventually hinder the smoothness that’s essential for an effortless writing experience. And when you couple the free-flowing, high-quality ink with the incredible Pilot G2 rollerball points, then you can always expect the best writing/drawing experience ever.

How many colors do the Pilot G2 Pens come in?

The Pilot G2 Pen brand comes with an incredible 27 color options. The latter makes it perfect for both writing and drawing. Some of the most famous colors include black, yellow, red, brown, etc. That said, always go for whatever colors you want as it won’t influence the price at all.

Pilot G2 inkwells are also quite easy to retract and refill, which makes it a lot more convenient for you to work as you won’t spend too much time with refilling – a process known to be quite messy especially when inexperienced hands and ordinary brands are involved.

That said, in case you’re having issues with replacing the ink in your Pilot G2 Pen, then feel free to check out one of the countless tutorials on the same on YouTube.

Are the famous Pilot G2 refills compatible with other pens?

While the Pilot G2 Brand has proven beyond reasonable doubt that they have the best ink on the market, there still are many pen brands that aren’t compatible with it. The main reason for the latter being the case is that most pen brands tend to produce their ink. Thankfully, you can still use your high-quality Pilot G2 inkwell in a handful of top-tier pen brands without risking a malfunction.

These top-tier brands include the Ti2 Techliner, the Schmidt 5888, the Pilot V5, the Uniball Jetstream, and the Uniball 207 Gel Pen. There’re hundreds of other lesser-known pen brands that are also compatible with the Pilot G2 Pen Ink.

Why is the Pilot G2 brand considered one of the best pens in the market?

As I’d already mentioned earlier, there’s a legit reason as to why the Pilot G2 Pen is among the best-selling pens in America and therefore the perfect alternative for the Schmidt Easyflow 9000 Pen. For starters, the Pilot G2 Pen is super durable. It also comes with a wide range of color options that cater to different people who want the pen for different reasons/uses.

Another valid reason is simply that the Pilot G2 Pen has aesthetic value. In simpler terms, the pen’s design is simple yet quite eye-catching at the same time. The brand’s top-tier roller point also makes writing easy and fun. Finally, you can stash your Pilot G2 Pen for up to three years and not worry about defects as is often the case with most ordinary brands.

Why do the Pilot G2 Pens have a huge difference in prices?

The main reason behind the Pilot G2 Pen price difference (from $1-$25) is quite simple; different people have different purchasing powers. The Pilot G2 Pen company, therefore, understands that just because an esteemed client doesn’t have the luxury to spend $25 on a pen doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get their hands on good quality pens.

The only difference between a $25 Pilot G2 Pen and a $1 Pilot G2 Pen is that the former comes with a lot more features than the latter.
