It's now been a day with the 702. This is the perfect EDC pen for me. I ended up not using the plastic insert in the tip at all. The clicky from the 402 is far more satisfying. The fine red Fisher ink flows perfectly, so smoothly, it is a great writing experience. I was interested in a fancier pen - the retrakt - before I succeeded at the 701+402=702 mod. For now, at least I am very satisfied with the 702. I guess the earlier post about zebra not wanting to give up the extra $ of those of us having to get both 701 and 402 is spot on. Though zebra did respond to a tweet and said they would look into this further. If a 702 came this way out of the box, I'd certainly pay more for it (though the mod is fun, I felt accomplished by doing it). Very satisfying all around!
