Strangely, I have to...

Strangely, I have to disagree with almost every point the previous reviewer
makes about this pen. I find this pen a lot smoother than the Signo Premier 207
pen. The refill that comes with the Signo Premier 207 pen skips and is drier
than the refill that comes with this pen. The refilll in this pen is very wet
and inky. As for precision, I generally use 0.5 mm or smaller so I am biased
when it comes to rating its precision.
I prefer having a bit of weight in my pens, so the Signo Premier 207 is way too
light and feels cheap. The Signo Premier 207 does have a better grip though, its
the Alpha-gel grip. I'm not really sure if the reviewer before me has actually
used this pen because the grip is not made of metal at all, just metallic
colored rubber. I repeat, the grip is not metal for those who are unsure of
buying this pen. The rest of the pen is metal however, and one point I do agree
on with the previous reviewer is that the pen is unbalanced.
Overall, I think there are good and bad points to both the Pilot G-2 Limited and
the Signo Premier 207. The Pilot G-2 takes many Pilot pens including the Frixion
line (with the exception of the Color-pencil-like 0.7 mm Frixion pens). The
Signo Premier 207 I believe is best with the 0.38 mm Signo RT pens which cost
about the same as typical pen refills ($1.50). A note for those who like the
Zebra Sarasa RT pens, the refills on those pens fit the Signo Premier 207 as
well, at least they do for the 0.7 mm kind that you can find in most office
