      I'm also have the same issue as Dimity below - great pen until this happened.

      Hi. Got mine. The pen is perfect, except for one annoying thing. The spring inside the body, that is being pushed by the back end of refill, is not fixed well in the pen. When I slightly shake the pen, it makes a rattle noise. That is quite strange, as the spring is supposed to be compressed by the refill, and shouldn't rattle. Does anyone else have the same issue, and is there a way to fix this?

      I absolutely love this pen! I use it everyday with a Mont Blanc fine tip roller ball refill and couldn't be happier. While the pen's build quality and fit and finish are great, I was a little disappointed that this pen is made in China and not in the USA. I didn't see anything on the campaign that said the pen would be manufactured in China. Knowing the creators are from Chicago, I naturally thought the pens would be manufactured locally or at least in the USA. No problems with the pen, it is great, I just wished it had been made clear these were Chinese produced.

      For anybody else interested in knowing, I was able to cut down (with some patience and a pair of ordinary office scissors) a Pilot G-2 refill to the length of a G-2 Mini. A pair of pliers will get the little plastic plug off of the discarded end and it easily fits into the new "end" of the cut-down refill. Works like a charm! Now I have an excuse to use the bigger pens (with G-2 refills) and then modify and move the refills to the smaller pen now and again. So many pens, so little time! :-)

      Hi, I love the build quality of the pen and how it writes but I have a tiny issue which really annoys me when I write with the cap attached to the back. The clip of the screw-on cap has become pretty loose for some reason and it clicks/moves around whenever I write. Is there anyway to fix this? Thanks alot! :)

      next version could allow the barrel to be filled with fountain pen ink or include a cartridge converter with replaceable rollerball tips

      Drats, I was hoping they might at least sell them in bulk to you folks! Ah well, I do feel silly buying entire pens just for their refills. I may have to test the various ways of cutting down other refills.

      Thanks for the info and some great pens!

    10. chadwick parker & joe huang 22-time creator on July 19, 2014

      Hi Julie,
      Thanks for the comments! You will need to buy the pilot mini g2 pens and use the refills inside and recycle the plastic parts for the XTS refills. We suggest buying the online if a local store doesn't have them near you. You can also cut down other old refills to fit inside if you'd like also.

      We have contacted Pilot before and they tell us they do not sell the refills separate to anyone worldwide. :(

      We wish they did but sadly they won't do it. Thanks for the strong support of our pens and we hope you have a great day!

      And yes, I love my XTS pen so much that I've emptied the ink refill. I also love its "big" brother, but the XTS is perfect for my pockets! I never realized how much I missed having a pocket pen that writes very smoothly and is incredibly well balanced. I can write for hours without writing fatigue! As I have rather small hands, this is pretty hard to do outside of disposable pens or the slimmer astronaut pens. Thanks for another great pen project!

      Has anybody found a source for the Pilot Mini G2 Refills for the XTS pen?

      @Chad and Joe: Maybe you guys will stock them in your storefront so I can order them along with some more stylus tips. :-D

    13. chadwick parker & joe huang 22-time creator on July 5, 2014

      Hi ssugi,
      You should be able to firmly tighten the flat plug to keep it in place. You can also put a small amount of bees wax or dry candle wax on the plug threads to help it have more resistance. Hope this helps!

      This pen feels just perfect in your hand. However, do you have any suggestions on how to keep the screw tip from coming off? My came off once, but fortunately, I found it in my shirt pocket.

      Just wanted to let you guys know my wife absolutely loves the pen. She writes all day long, so I consider that high praise from her. Thanks again for an awesome product, and I look forward to your next KS project.

      Hi John,
      Glad you got your pen! The stylus tip is required to have a little room in the tip for air so it functions properly. This is actually part of the design.

      Received my pen on Saturday and I love it, one small niggle is that the stylus adapter does not fit well (the rubber portion bulges out).

      Received my pens two days ago and just had a chance today to look them over. I love the pens! Great design as well as fit and finish. Perfect EDC pens. I'm going to love taking these on my overseas travels.

      This is my first time backing one of your projects and I look forward to backing future ones as this entire campaign experience was top notch. I wish other campaigns were ran this smoothly. Great work guys!

      Got my pen yesterday, but finally had a chance to really look at it today. It's fantastic so far. The only issue I have with mine is some scuffing at the base of the head, near the threads. It's not really noticeable, but slightly annoying. Other than that, really well done guys!

      After two days of 9 to 5 use of this pen (and ownwing all their previous models) I think Chadwick and Joe have finally perfected the design of this pen.

      The weight is perfect, the look flawless and the new cap design now really protects the refill tip. I can't think of any downsides.

      I have chosen not to apply wax to the threads. The scratching is non existent on the back side and It's gotten much better on the front side after some use.

      The quality of this product combined with the exceptional way of managing the project since its start makes C&J kickstarter campaigns a non brainer for a lover of product design. I can't wait to know what they have in mind for their next one.
