Did you know that the Pilot G2 comes in a “Mini” version?
This isn’t really a review, because I’ve reviewed the G2 before and I really like it for what it is. But I wanted to throw out there that I recently picked up a three-pack of G2 Minis on Amazon for the “add on item” price of 4 USD.
The pencil itself is essentially the same as the “regular size” G2. Same grip, same retractable sleeve, same eraser. It’s just squished into a smaller size.
I actually find myself appreciating this smaller version a lot. It is convenient to slip this pencil into your pocket with a small notebook in case you have to jot something down on the go. Here’s a comparison between the normal size and mini versions:
The G2 doesn’t make my Top Ten or Honorable Mentions, but it is one of the better economy pencil choices out there and comes at a very reasonable price. If you’re looking for a great pencil that is pocket safe to take on the go, this is a great solution!
Here’s a rundown of how I rated the G2 originally in case you don’t have time to watch the video:
Writing Experience: Good
Quality: OK (I might be inclined to go OK+ on this now)
