    Has anyone else come across one of these? It’s a Jotter XL. Same steadfast Jotter pen but slightly larger in size. Only picked it up on the weekend so I can’t say if it will make a difference in my big mitt yet but I know I sometimes get hand cramps during long writing sessions with the regular Jotter and hoping the little extra dimensions will help. The black is my trusty standard Jotter and the blue is the new XL. [​IMG]

    I saw these when they first hit the market. My take: It negates most of the good points of the original Jotter (i.e., short length/handy carry), without substantially improving ANYTHING AT ALL. Jotters are not and never were intended for extended writing as witness the name Jotter. The XL is not really enough larger in diameter to address gripes about small barrel size, so it went on my "Why Bother" list the minute I first saw them. If you do extended writing, do yourself a favor and get a pen actually designed for that, If you're looking for something in a similar price range, the Metropolitan ballpoints are a better choice for more extended writing.

    Did it come with an adapter to fit the Fisher Space refills?

    The adapters come with the Fisher Space refill...not the pen.

    I knew that...

    Just didn't remember.

    So, the question still remains...

    Will the Fisher fit in the XL @rat-7 ?

    The XL takes the same size refill as the regular so I would say yes.

    ..and did they improve the strength of the clip or make it the same strength just longer?

    Same clip only longer and a little thicker.
