Hybrid HGG² by DarkArcher

This mod is called Hybrid HGG² because it uses a HGG and a G2. The 2 Gs make it G² and the rest is self explainatry. This mod uses the cap on feature of pens to allow it to retain its ability to write. Another personal favourite, it has a good length, isn’t too heavy/light and is definitely something you should try out.

Pen Facts:

Length: 18.5 cm
Weight: Com.ssa < HGG² < RSVP MX
CoG: In the range of 1cm of CoP
Main pens: HGG, G2

Parts Needed:

2: HGG barrel. Cut at the part just after the buldge near the screw threads. (Theres sort of a slight marking already)

3: G2 barrel. Measure 5.8 cm from the back of the barrel (after you have taken the clicker part out) and cut.

4: G2 refill. Poke a hole large enough for the tip of the ink to fit through in the back cap of the refill (Black part in the picture). This refill portion is 4.2 cm long.

5: G2 refill. This portion is 1.8 cm long.

6: The back part of a Pilot SuperGel.

7: Any ink tube (RSVP).

8: HGG grip.

9: A portion of the G2 grip.

10: Wooden barbeque stick.

1) Fit the parts together as shown in the picture. Tip: You might want to give the grooves on the HGG barrel (Where the original grip used to be) a little shave so it is easy for you to slip on the G2 barrel.
2) Wrap some tape on the G2 refill portion to thicken it (The portion near the tip).
3) Do the same for the other G2 refill prtion (Part 5).
4) Place part 5 at the back part of the G2 barrel to cover the hole.
5) Slide the HGG grip onto the G2 tip portion (Part 1).
6) Fit everything together to get the finished Mod.

    Who ever has this pen, is it a good pen?

  2. sfsr says:

    It can be awesome, but the weight is distrubuted a bit weirdly. If you’re new to penspinning I would not suggest this pen, as it can be a pain to mod also.. xD

  3. Ian says:

    I’m not new to penspinning and right now I am trying to make the pen. It’s such a pain in the ass to make it.

  4. GazL says:

  5. brunowow says:

  6. clyde says:

    what’s the rsvp inktube for? it doesnt write anyways…

  7. Apricot says:

    just a hint of mine:
    if youre cutting the grips of the g2, try to attach the fluted part..i think its much better than the slick part that is used in the tutorial (even tho its a bit shorter)

    also i agree..its a pain to make it t_t

  8. blacknwhite says:

    hey btw how do u create the insert? im new to penspinning but i have already did a hgg^2… juz without the insert

  9. metyl says:

    if you do not like this pen and think the weight is distributed wierdly you can make the retractable one (made by some german guy on youtube, dotn remember his name^^) and its quite nice

  10. Winterlocke says:

    I just made a mod of this pen last night… and it spins like a dream.

    Its the HGG²-SE, a german mod. It uses only an HGG and G2 (it lacks a plug, but i just bulked up the ink tube with tape to block it – does the same thing). However, I didnt find the cutting of the barrels that difficult, and I was using a very large table-clamp (which didnt work too well) and a serrated knife.

    my favourite part of the pen is DEFINITELY the grip. i was using a modified MX before and I really found infinities difficult… but i can do them again! (my first pen was a bictory XD)

    Oh, theres also a tut on making the SE retractable… but it unbalances the pen a bit.

    how is it writable?

  12. jamx_jai_jay_jam(jjjj) says:

    ican we make this with a pilot super grip barrel?

  13. jamx_jai_jay_jam(jjjj) says:

    do we have to use rsvp grips?

  14. jamx says:

    i just made 1 and it rulz! well for a g2 + hgg mod…

  15. LiEn says:

    Does anyone have a good verision remove the “clip” from the G2?

  16. matt says:

    do u need to use the spring?

  17. Chris Zombolas says:

    i made one today. it works well. it’s really easy to cut the barrels as long as you have the right equipment. i used a hacksaw and series of differently gritted sandpaper. the only problem is you can’t write with it.

  18. spinn3r says:

    I have one

  19. Oow says:

    I have two, and I can assure you its a good mod

    @Chris Zombolas: I don’t know how you made your pen, but it definitely writes. You just take the G2 tip part off.

  20. Noobspinner says:

    anyone got a sub for the supergel end bit? =(.

    local stores here sells HGGs and G2s but no SuperGel…
