The Schmidt EasyFlow 9000 (sometimes referred to as the EF9000 or the EF9K) is a top choice for people who want to upgrade the ink in their Parker-style G2 pen. While it’s not sold in many pens, the EasyFlow 9000 is considered by many to be an excellent refill thanks to its versatility, vibrant colors, smoothness, and distinctive feel.
The EasyFlow 9000 is sold in fine, medium, and broad tips sizes. It’s sold in blue and black. We haven’t officially confirmed it yet, but for some time the broad size has been difficult to find. The company might be stopping production or limiting its release. The medium is a 1.0 mm.
Schmidt notes that the EasyFlow writing technology (ie: its ink) is combines the advantages of a ballpoint with those of a rollerball. This is one of the reasons we categorize it as a hybrid ink, despite Schmidt not using that specific term. The company also notes that it is a G2 standard refill that uses the “D” style as per DIN ISO 12757.
This is one of our favorite refills. It fits in a huge numbers of pens, like the Rotring 600, it has really bold colors, and it has a distinctive feedback when writing. We highly recommend checking it out.
The downside is that the broad size is hard to fit and the drying times are OK, but not great.
