Hi. I am looking for a good cheapish pen to go with my new sexy leather notebook cover. I have a midori pen clip medium so it has to fit that. I also want a screw cap so it doesn't fall of in my bag. I have been looking at the TWSBI mini so no more expensive than that. Please help me with more suggestions.
Then why not the TWSBI mini?

If not a mini then consider looking vintage and get an esterbrook, they are lovely pens with screw caps and interchangeable nibs like the TWSBI.

Two great suggestions in the Esti and the Pilot. In a different vein, you might look at a Kaweco Sport or a Pilot Petite 1. Both are pocket-type pens intended for banging around in a pocket or purse, not necessarily right-side up, and both are excellent writers, with the edge in my opinion going to the Pilot. But the Kaweco takes standard cartridges (and can be used as an eyedropper-filler) while the Petite 1 requires a proprietary Petite-1 cartridge.

Platinum Preppy 03 about $4 or less. You can buy a dozen of them for the price of a TWSBI.

What a shame. Love my Micarta.

If you didn't have the cost constraint I'd suggest looking at a Pelikan m300. How about a Pelikan m200? They're priced very competitively these days

Pilot 78G is a good suggestion - it is a twist cap, light, decent - but not particularly sexy.

I would second both the 78G and the Platinum Preppy.
Notebooks can get dropped and/or stood upon, and the attached pen become damaged.
I know the Preppy doesn't have a screw cap, but it does clip on quite sturdily, and screw caps can come undone just as easily.
I currently use a Platinum Preppy in a pen loop I made for a Modena notebook. It lives in my backpack and hasn't failed yet.

Presumably you'd be after something slim how about a Cross Century II.
