Massdrop, how about adding refills to the drop?
3 out of 4 cartridges have leaked, still a sexy pen
smudge
parker or cross sent ya?
The PR refill looks a lot like a Parker, is it possible to fit a Parker Gel refill in this pen? (yes, I realize it kinda defeats the purpose)
I have an older space pen with the U style and hate the way the ink flows (feels like a Bic) but have always loved how small it is when not in use.

The Parker is still to fat.


Also, mine is brass all the way to the end inside (no plastic to remove), there is just not enough room inside the Spacepen for a Parker in any direction.

Dunno then. Something may have changed with either the pen or the refill in the intervening years.
Are these shipped with clips?

I ordered these in chrome and matte black on the last drop (for $29.99...), and they did not come with clips.

Well, that's a pity..., thanks for the info!
I heard the Russians just used a pencil.

That's a myth. They use these now as well, apparently.

Grease pencils may have been used, but no one, EVER used a pencil. That would really, really bad. Graphite is a conductor, and stuff just floats around until it gets trapped in a filter, or finds something to short out (at which point, it floats in smaller pieces). And these were developed privately, no government paid for their development, though many have been customers.

I have a clicky type one with a pocket clip, and a rite-in-rain notebook. These are great for everything my fountain pens are not great for.
Do you ship to the UK?
Is Massdrop not doing updates on drops anymore? I recieved my pens today but had no idea that they’d even shipped.

These pens are beautiful. I got a rainbow and a black titanium. I have a click Fisher I’ve been using for ages, and really happy with it, but these are something else!

Probably one of those "forever" drops that resets daily.. But it is wierd that your order wasn't updated imo.

Are these pens non refillable? If they aren't, how long can I expect them to last?

These take the PR refills described at the link below. They claim a writing distance of 12,000 feet or about 2.25 miles. There was some study done in the UK that showed typical ballpoint pens last on average 3,000 feet, with the longest they tested achieving 6,500 feet. Also, the thixtropic ink shouldn't dry out like a normal ballpoint may if left in a drawer.

I've always been amazed by the longevity of the space pen refills. My preference goes to the Fine point versions, which in theory should last even longer... perhaps?

Thanks for the detailed answer! That sure is a crazy writing distance. Will definitely consider it.
Can you carry this pen on a plane? Will it leak if air pressure drop?

Good point! :)

While the Shuttle was sea level pressure (14.7psi) Appolo was 3.4 psi. So, shouldn't leak ;-)
