Very nice review. There seems to be so many different versions of the "Elite". Most are "Pocket Pens" with long caps and short capped length. This one seems to have a shorter cap so it is longer when capped. Also there are some very cheap versions, similar to the 78G's in construction with painted-on cap bands and the word Elite. Clips vary too, from cheap crimp mounting to better designs like this pen has. Are these pens still being made? Where did this one come from?
