I don't use ordinary ballpoints a lot, but Fisher's refills I like, so I've got some pens for them. This one is one of the nicer and nowadays usually the first choice when I bring a ballpoint pen.
You can get this pen in a few different colours and finishes.
It's solidly and well made, balance is good and it suits my hands quite well. I only wish it was a bit larger, like the Rotring Newton fountain and rollerball pens. The action is very smooth.
It weighs 24 g and the centre of mass is 80 mm from the tip. The pushbutton mechanism takes ~2.5 N to operate and the button protrudes about 15 mm over the clip.
I primarily use it with Fisher refills, as Parker compatible refills fits this pen too, and Parker gel refills.
