Default Felt Tipped Parker Inserts

A customer wants a bolt action pen with a felt tipped insert. I've looked around from specialty sites and stores to office max and staples without luck. Anyone know where to find these?

Thanks!

Does that pen have a cap on it?? Would the felt dry out if no cap.

That's a very good point... I'm feeling pretty silly right now for not considering that.

Thanks!

I have purchased the Schmidt 6040 (Fine line felt-like tip), to use as a roller replacement. I didn't have much success with it (and it wasn't cheap). The BA will accept a Parker Style Ceramic gel refill, but it is closer to a roller ball feel/wetness than I felt tip. I would also be concerned about a felt tip drying out. Let us know how you make out.

He brought that exact example up - but I believe those have a little door mechanism or something to prevent the pen from drying out.

Thanks for the references - the felt tip drying out is indeed the major concern right now.
