1 Parker Style G2 Ballpoint Pen Refills

Parker G2 ISO Standard 12757

In 1954 Parker launched their first ballpoint pen, and then three years later, in 1957, they improved the refill. This was known as a T-ball refill and was revolutionary at that time. It had a tungsten carbide ball with a textured surface that significantly improved the writing experience combined with a new ink formula.

The design of the new Parker refill was patented, and no other pen manufacturer could copy it. Many years later, Parker gave up the patent, and the design of this refill became an international standard according to ISO standard 12757.

As you can see from the image above taken from ISO 12757, the G2 refill is the one that was invented by Parker for their Jotter ballpoint pens, and hence the name Parker Style G2 refills came about.

  1. I need a refill for a Parker Pen T-BALL ref E8 MED BLACK Can you suggest an alternative refill which will fit. This pen is of significant sentimental value as it was given to me when I was under two years of age and I woould like to keep it. Thank you.

  2. Hi there… While I love the versatility of a ballpoint, I really enjoy the fluidity and lack of writing pressure when using a gel. Is the writing pressure of a hybrid negligible when compared to a gel, or is the hybrid close to my normal ballpoint pressure?

    Last, based on your detailed review above, am I correct in understanding that the only broad gel G2 refill is the Pelikan337, that the only broad hybrid is the Schmidt P900, and that the only extra-broad, is the Schneider Slider 755 hybrid?

    Thank you
