I am an ardent fan of the Visconti Gel Parker style refill (model AA38B) .... alas Visconti have decided to discontinue it in favour of a new hybrid Gel ballpoint ink version called the Smartouch. Unfortunately no where near the smoothness of the old Gel version. Attached is the new (top) and old (bottom).

If anyone knows who may have the old Gel stock Id appreciate any info.

RIP Visconti Gel.

Write Visconti and tell them they are taking a step back in quality and ask why they are doing so. If enough people does that, they may retrace their steps and advance differently.

If it isn't too bright for you, it isn't bright enough for me.
