File this one under "What the heck was I thinking?". I have already gone on record saying how much I dislike the Pilot P-500 Precise Gel Roller, but I didn't put two and two together when grabbing the environmentally friendly model off of the grocery store shelf. I was caught in a moment of I need that, and didn't take a moment to really consider what I was buying.
For the uninitiated, the Pilot BeGreen line takes an existing ink cartridge - say the Pilot G-2, or in this case the P-700 - and wraps an eco-friendly barrel around it. This is a great program, and in cases like the Pilot G-Knock (the eco-friendly G-2), I like the eco barrel even better than the original. Unfortunately in the case of the Precise, it is the same needle tip gel ink cartridge that I dislike so much.
Looks like this pen is about to be recycled one more time.
