But you know what they say - Russians used pencils

Personally for 'normal writing' I am a big fan of Parker gels in a rather heavy and very ergonomic thick metal pen that I had for ages, and of some similar-to-Fisher but a lot less expensive Uniball PowerTank models when I need to write 'upside down'

retractable point, so the cap needs two hands style...not my choice really. In2004 I bought 5 used pens from a forum buddy in USA...he was clearing out his unused stuff!

The Fisher pen is just for fun to go with my X-33 hahaha! If I like how they write/perform, I'm going to order more!

seems like the ink used to smudge up and smear on the paper and my fingers. But it worked great everytime a wrote upside down.

to leak. Cheaper ones leak almost as soon as you start writing with them; then you get smears and ink on your hands
The more expensive ones should be a lot better but eventually they too will leak.
