    Every Pilot Precise V5 I've owned started leaking ink, usually where the clear plastic was connected to the tip. They are very smooth and have nice ink, I just got tired of the ink ending up all over my fingers and clothes. I haven't bought one in five or six years, maybe they've improved them by now.

    Okay, have been noticing that the clip on my Fisher Pen keeps coming/sliding off. I did Loctite Blue it, but for some reason it doesn't "adhere" to the finish. At least that's something to say for the finish on this Fisher pen eh?

    Loctite wont work like that. It needs threads to work, this is because it needs a lack of oxygen to cure (it does not actually dry).

    My clip keeps sliding off too, I don't think there is a solution because of the pen shape.

    The clip was nothing more than an afterthought. A quick way of trying to add a clip without changing the original design. My current pen is the only one that the clip has managed to stay on.

    Hello Alloy Addict!

    You're refering to your Fisher Pen? How'd you manage to "keep" it on there? Did you somehow sinch(sp?) it? Just curious—

    I didn't do anything to it. There is a piece of shrink tubing on the cap under the clip, perhaps the friction helps. I never use the clip either which might have something to do with it. I actually keep the clip on there to keep the pen from rolling off of stuff so easily.

    After reading your post re: the clip coming off I tried to think of a solution. Some type of epoxy came to mind, but how to get it under the clip without getting all over the pen is a mystery.

    I have damn near as many pens as flashlights!

    My latest find was a two-pack of Uni Power Tank 1.0

    It writes first time everytime. It isn't very sturdy as I've already broken the clip off one. Also I've not seen them in either Target or Wallyworld since I got these.

    The broken clip one stays in my pocket ready for use as I have a "pen" place in my uniform shirts.

    Would say more but I gotta go bowling!

    A few more words on the subject.

    I also EDC a Sharpie with a Fine point on one end and Extra fine on the other.

    Almost any of the Uniballs write well, with of my examples the Vision Elite pop top having the strongest line of several I just tested. The gel inks seem to flow better.

    Of the other pens I could easily lay my hands on just now, the Pilot Easy Touch is a pretty decent writer.

    I tend to put something nicer in my pocket on off work hours, but I hardly ever go without a pen!

    http://www.uniball.com.au/uni_powertank_ret_med.htm this is the pen i like. it is a mitsubishi uniball pressurized cartridge as mentioned by sjackal. couldn't find it anywhere. after some research, http://www.uniball-na.com/ was found. sanford pen site. look at powertank on far right which has a pressurized cartridge. looks identical to the mitsubishi pen. they must buy it from them. wal-mart sells them at about $4 for two pens. they write upside down, on walls, thru water, etc. cheap

    I still love my old metal Shaeffer ballpoint though it does feel slippery at times. My Pilot Hi-Tec C pens writes like it was going out of style though - just perfect. Just wish it wasn't so hard to find.

    I have carried a Rotring 600 Trio for 6 years now. It is very heavy and rugged and provides three writing instruments in one.....7mm pencil, red ball point and black ballpoint. Equiped like a geek but don't look like one. ...no pocket protector.

    Always carry my Porsche Design Tec Flex Pen (don't drive the cars, just like the pen).

    The Tec Flex barrel gives plenty of grip, the whole thing is really tough and as a bonus takes Parker refills which seem to be readily available in most stationary stores or big newsagents and I really prefer the broad refill in black.

    Plenty of links around the web, here is one I picked at random http://www.artbrown.com/merchant.iht...tid=107&step=4

    Comes in gold & silver or just silver, which I prefer.

    Okay—dropped my Stealth Black Fisher SP in a parking lot outside El Torritos and put a "dinger" on the cap! No Bueno! Gave it straightaway to the first kid I saw at the restaurant.

    Still EDC'ing my A.T. Cross SS Ion though. But I think I'm going to get another FSP—the Millennium series.

    Was slumming today.

    Had a Pilot EasyTouch in my T-Shirt pocket. Ain't much to look at, but it writes OK.

    Lost one of my Power Tanks so I had a Pentel Client in my work shirt pocket the last couple days. It's a nice! Maroon color with chrome accents.... which also writes nicely.

    I much prefer Medium points...

    My EDC pen is a cheapie, either the Zebra F-301 in black ink, or the G-301 (G for gel). The anoying thing is that nobody locally has just the refills for the G-301 so when the refills run out I buy 2 more pens and refills from Walmart.

    LOVE the Zebra F-301. Been my EDC for two years plus on the first cartridge, still have the other pen from the two-pack in my briefcase. Cheap, smooth, reliable, grip not too sticky, not too slippery, not bad looking, and I can't stand anything but a fine point. Did I mention cheap? A cheap pen is one that you don't have to replace often because it just keeps performing, almost like new. I don't know who these Zebra people are, but I wish they made flashlights, computers and cars!
