    Thats your average chinese tool pen, i would not pay 14 dollars for that even if they gave it a nice paintjob and a giftbox. They are your average poor quality pen, if you want to try one yourself anyways check out aliexpress and search for '32673033003'.

    Go check out Office Depot or OfficeMax or Staples.

    I have a Silver Avant Pro capped.
    It has a rubber grip area. Can use G2 or Uniball or Avant refill. It was my good capped pen before I got a Lamy.

    I recently got a Caran d'Ache 849. I intend to use it as a host for a space pen refill, but the goliath refill it came with is pretty good.

    If you like short pens, it's a contender.

    That should be an interesting effort. I tried once. Standard Fisher refills are different enough in both diameter and length that they didn't fit in my CdA 849. IIRC, I've seen others post both here at EDCF and at Fountain Pen Network that that is not a mod that goes too well... Hope you'll be more successful and then teach the rest of us!

    And yes, the Goliath refill is really nice!

    L'chaim!

    I have found some Ballpoint pens that write pretty darn good.
    Papermate Inkjoy 1.0mm.
    I put one black one in my F701 and one in a giveaway pen at a place I used to pick up at
    Both could make it into rotation...

    Also dollar stores often have Gel ink pens with standard skinny refills.

    Hmmm...perhaps I've been mislead by the refill compatibility thread stickied at the top of this forum that says that the Caran will take Parker style refills (and, thus, a Fisher with supplied adapter). Well, time will tell.

    Parker Jotter is also my suggestion. (You can refill it with Fisher when the original tank runs out.)
