Even though I love my fountain pens, I don't really like bringing them with me on business trips, especially not if I'm flying. I have been looking at the orignal model, AG7, but I think it's a bit too expensive for me (it's a ballpoint). I have also had my eyes on the Bullet model because of the price (however it looks quite cool as well), but I would like a capless version. Now I found the Shuttle model, which is much cheaper at domestic web shop than the AG7, almost as cheap as the Bullet. The web shop has two versions of the Shuttle model to choose from: CH4 http://images.spacepen.com/ch4_frontview_open_400.png and B4 http://images.spacepen.com/b4_frontview_open_400.png Anyone who have tried both these models and can tell pros and cons? Grip, finish, etc.. Also, the point sizes. Medium or fine? How do they compare to fountain pens in line widths?
Hi Pen People Had to join so that I can ask a couple of burning questions about my rOtring 600 trio (which I will endeavor to do in the correct forum). I worked in the U-district (Seattle) in the late 80's/early 90's, right next to the UW bookstore. I always had a bit of a pen/pencil fetish and I delighted in browsing the aisles and searching for the perfect pen (I worked retail). I fell in love with the compact Fisher Bullet Spacepen, and I have had one in my pocket (and can't count the lost ones) ever since. I kept feeding my penlust and when I discovered the rOtring display, I knew I had to have one. At the time, the pens and pencils were a princely $US45 and I never told my wife how much I had spent on, first, a silver 600 MP, and, later, a 600G BP. I put a Fisher Spacepen pressurized insert in the 600G, and it is now the perfect pen. As to the 600 trio, I found it at a garage sale, in gently used condition, for $US5, yes, five. I still carry all three daily, clipped securely in my laptop bag. I saved the black and red gift boxes for years, but eventually tossed them out. <regret> Super glad to find this resource Todd
