Wrote acceptably but the barrel fractured, rendering it dangerous to use. Very
disappointing! I had high hopes for this pen. Save your money by buying the
regular kind, or get a proper Fisher Space Pen.
I found the ink to be acceptable. I used this as my dedicated car-pen; in good
temperatures it writes like a good ballpoint, and in sub-zero Canadian winters
it writes like a thick, below-average ballpoint: that it still writes is
impressive enough for me!
Unfortunately, the top of the barrel fractured, and while the pen is still
intact, clicking the pen down or up you risk having the top pop off. I have
stopped using it for fear of losing it forever.
Total usage: a few hundred lines in my car, and a *single day* of pocket carry,
prematurely aborted because I noticed the barrel had already snapped.
