    I will buy an aluminum pen with grooves when they come out.
    I don't like the feel of smooth metal.

    Expect one from Tactile Turn sometime in the not-too-distant future. I was lamenting how bad the Schmidt clicky knocks suck (and that everyone uses them) and Will said he was working on a bolt pen. :)

    I love my Fellhoelter TiBolt. I've carried it to work everyday for a year and a half--2 years.

    I see a lot of love for the Fellhoelter and Maxmadco... gotta admit I'm part of the bandwagon :D

    Of the two, I prefer the Maxmadco. The slimmer profile suits me better and also the smaller knob. The large knob on the Fellhoelter presses into my hand the wrong way and I have to turn the pen to avoid this.

    I really appreciate this thread. I'm deciding on a bolt style pen and am leaning towards either a ti or al maxmadco. Anyone like the Karas? Also, does anyone have a link for MMC? Finally if anyone wants to chime in long term use and what their current favorite is, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

    The Maxmadco will not disappoint, its such a beautiful pen. I got the Ti version and have no regrets with it. Can't post links on this site, but a quick google search of "maxmadco" will produce the site you are after :)

    I used my d.caston design 'rocket oval bolt pen' for some time now and I have to say I really like it.
    It is unobstrusive while in pocket and I like how the mechanism feels. It is in no way scratchy.
    Also I put some mild locktite on the top screw so it stopped loosening during use.

    The titanium feels good in hand, the weight is great (not too heavy, not too light) and it looks good.

    And for the people who are in desperate need of a 'space type' refill there is a pressurized refill made by Schmidt which has the size and form factor of a Parker refill. It fits this pen perfectly.

    Waiting for someone to post the titaner stylus pen..
    The maxmadco remains THE pen of all the "internet" pens I have that I would buy again without hesitation.

    I have the Ti bolt and love it. It is very smooth and feels great in hand. I also have the boker 50 cal version, awesome compact pen at a decent price. The maxmadco is on my list, but may be awhile.

    Thanks for the replies, so the MMC is the maxmadco? Also, is the titanium worth the extra money over the aluminum?
