Has anyone used the Fisher Space Pen with stylus? I'm considering getting one, if you have one, please share your thoughts on it. How does it write, both on the PDA and on paper? How long does an ink refill last?
I just received my Fisher Space Pen multi function, and boy what a piece of junk. For $30 I expected to receive a pen that was a bit heavier and was made of metal, not plastic. Check it out for yourself but for me I will be returning mine.

For the record, you are mentioning a completely different pen. Both of these are very popular and sell very well. We get very few returned. I am sorry it is not to your taste. Please feel free to return it for a refund. Thank you.
I recently purchased two of the chrome bullet space pens with the stylus and think they're great. In fact Im ordering another one today, just deciding if I want to try the black version which in my opinion looks less eyecatching. I love the design and elegant simplicity and it writes as well as any mont blonc I have. I do find that the chrome can be a negative if my hand is perspired since it can slip slowly forward, but the ribs at the grip area help limit that. As a stylus it works very well for me either fully opened or closed; closed it is about the same length as my Axim x50v stylus but the thickness makes it easier to handle. One possible negative is that I got it mainly to clip in the change pocket of jeans, but when I sit it seems to squeeze itself out defeating the purpose of it's size and designed purpose. Ultimately I highly recommend it.
