Here you get the best deal possible.
I have yet to use the pen, but the tube that housed the rollerball/ballpoint adapter was FAR too small for the piece.
I tried various methods of trying to extract the standard pen tip to no avail. In my efforts I ended up scratching the interior of the standard pen tip. I had to resolve to cracking and breaking open the tube with pliers.
Even when I exposed half of the tip and tried to pull the tip out it wouldn't budge at all. I, then again, slightly scratched the threads. I wasn't able to retrieve the standard pen tip until fully destroying the plastic tubing. Nearly cutting myself.
This size problem renders the tube useless. I now have nothing to store the fountain tip in, and negatively affected the standard tip in the process. Extremely poor design for such an expensive pen.
Expected more. Expected better.

I absolutely love my Ti Ultra Pen. It feels great in my hand and writes superbly.
I can not speak highly enough about this pen. The weight, the shape, the versatility, the aesthetic, everything! I originally saw this pen on the Lochby blog and was fasciated. After I saw the Figboot review, I knew I needed it. It feels amazing in the hand, and the extra o-rings give the cap such a snug feel, it's a great experience to just uncap the pen.
Two nibs for the fountain pen, and a refill for the ball point/rollarball/gel section! The value is in favor of the buyer.
Lastly, I got mine in 1 day! I don't know how that happened, but it arrived in record time.
This pen is worth so much more, and for a titanium pen, It feels great as an EDC.
See the FigBoot On Pens review.
This is hopefully the last pen I will ever get. It has good weight to it. The build quality is phenomenal and will be great as an everyday carry writing utensil. It also fits well in a shirt pocket. Five stars!
I first purchased the Big Idea Design Ti Pocket Pro, followed shortly after by the TPT Slide Tool, the Ti Bolt Action Pen, and a couple BiD leather pen sleeves to protect my investments. All awesome products in their own right.
But I really wanted the Ti Ultra, because I liked the idea of a slightly larger diameter pen in my hand, and I was completely intrigued by its unique capability to be readily converted from a premium fountain pen to a ballpoint pen, and back. I looked at other premium fountain [only] pens on the market, and given the versatility of the Ti Ultra, I thought it was a true bargain. I don't regret my decision to buy this pen at all. It is just plain awesome. Exemplary build quality; a novel, all-metal chuck mechanism to accommodate and firmly secure any of 700+ ink cartridges; and perfect size, weight, and balance in my hand. This is, IMHO, the best pen that Big Idea Design makes. You can tell that they put a lot of significant thought and careful design engineering into this piece. Great work, folks!
