"Upgrading" My Waterman

My brother used to commute to Paris for work.
One benefit of this was the occasional French trinket.
I got a lovely Waterman rollerball pen one year for Christmas, but was never thrilled with the cartridge. Waterman makes a terrific fountain pen, but I think the rollerballs are nothing special.

I'm a huge fan of the Pilot G2 ballpoints though. When I was online ordering a Waterman replacement cartridge, and I realized the Pilot G2 ballpoint refills were the same length as the Waterman rollerball.

Turns out the Pilot G2 refill fits! Now I have the nice feel and appearance of the Waterman, with the smooth G2 ink. (And at a fraction of the price.)
