Jeanette, the Fisher AG-7 is a great pen but it costs about 8 times what the Zebra 701 does. You can actually buy a Fisher Space Pen refill and by removing the inner plastic tip from the tip of a Zebra 701, put the Space Pen refill into the 701 and you have a great pen, for way less than an AG-7. I leave a modded Zebra 701 in my cars all the time and temps above 110F, the pens work perfectly.

I also carry in my pocket for everyday, the Fisher X-MARK CHROME SQUARE TOP BULLET pen. Not expensive and small for the jeans pocket. I never leave home without that pen.

Im confused. Are you saying the AG7 is the better pen or that a modified Zebra F-701 is better than either of the two?

I think the AG-7 is the best of the bunch but costs a lot more than the Zebra. So, a modified Zebra is a great pen at a decent, affordable price. I prefer the Fisher AG-7 to any other ball point pen though.
