I bought my first B2P...
I bought my first B2P pens just after they came out. This is a neat body for the Pilot G-2 Refill. I found that I liked it much better when I removed the label. I found I really liked this body. There's a good grip area on the body that extends pretty much all of the body that is easy to hold onto. There's not rubber/gel to attract dust. Add to that I have found this pen takes many other refills. I have tried Uni 207s in 0.7 and 1.0, Pentel EnerGels in 0.7, and Sarasa Gels in 0.7 and 1.0. Also I've found that the Jetstream BallPoints fit this body! I have 6 now and I think each one has a different refill in it!

My purchases: I bought B2P in colors black and blue.

In dim-lighting, the identical barrel coloration and design of each pen make the pens very difficult to differentiate. I think the only noticeable ink indicators are only visible under brighter light: the lighter blue ink of the blue pen, the pen clicker colors, and the written color indicators on the pen labels. I have found it too easy to accidentally presume the dark-blue barrel of the black pen indicates blue ink, or vice versa, since the barrels are the exact same in dark-blue plastic coloring. I think this is a minor, or maybe major, problem, with implications for many specific writing needs and particular environment conditions; and due to it, I have limited my use of B2P pens for informal, casual, non-professional use only.

My issues with the B2P identical barrel coloration aside, for such a reasonable price, and very cool concept, buying several B2P pens seemed like a great idea, and I would buy more again. The pen cost is inexpensive for the higher quality of pens I believe I have with my B2Ps compared to even cheaper alternatives. So, considering the low-cost alone, and noble cause to bring awareness to environmental implications, overall I think the B2Ps are better than OK. The ink performance is good, and up to the standard of quality I have gratefully experienced from all Pilot pens. In the future though, I would consider buying or using only one of the three colors of B2P ink options available... I hope this information is helpful to you!

I had one of these pens in the past and forgot why I didn't use it as my everyday pen. I found that out after getting this one. The B2P label in the middle of the pen starts to detach where it overlaps so that you end up feeling a portion of the label as you write with it. I think I'll remove the label and clean up the glue and keep using the pen.

This writes well since it used the G-2 refill and hasn't caused me any issues.

Interesting concept,...
Verified Purchase
Interesting concept, but the pen is noisy, it rattles a lot when writing, as a pen it should be as silent as possible. The 0.7mm line is very thick.

This my new got to pen....
This my new got to pen. I am enjoying the .7mm tip more than I thought I would, but the more I use it the more I want to put a thinner refill for notes. I bought 2 somewhere else and oneis my daily pen and another notes with .38 G-2 refill.

Verified Purchase
I love the concept behind these pens. I try to support anything that is earth-friendly. I purchased 4 blue B2P pens from somewhere else and decided to get one black & one red from JetPens to have all the colors. These pens write incredibly smooth & the colors are very bold. I have enjoyed using them with the added bonus that somehow by using them I am helping the environment.
