So I just bought a 700R last week. I had checked out a few reviews and nowhere in any of them did it say the 700R does not post. Well here I am today with a non-posting 700R. Is this normal? I prefer to post my pens when writing so I don't have to worry about the cap at all.

I don't have a 700r, but I do have a 700 and a couple of 580's. None post but, even with my large hands, they have sufficient length not to need posting for a comfortable fit. Don't know what to say about concern for the cap. I usually just lay it down on the desk above my writing area, but if I'm making quick notes, I hold it in my left hand as I write with my right hand.

Those are large pens with heavy caps.  I don't believe they were meant to be posted.  It would make it very top heavy.

 

I can assure you will soon get used to holding the cap with your other hand.   I don't like posting my caps either.

 

 

I only post if the pen is too small to hold properly without cap (ex. kawecos, stipula passaporto)

I bought a 700R couple of weeks ago and mine posts really securely over the knob. While the cap doesn't screw on the back like the mini, there shouldn't be an issue with it posting.

Vac 700R posts securely but heavy cap makes it top heavy and unusable for me. 540 / 580 can not be posted.

My TWSBI Vac 700's cap posts securely onto the barrel. My 580ALs all post securely, though only onto the piston knob (as expected though).
