The only incompatibility...
September 6, 2011
The only incompatibility I found with this pen is that it is uncomfortable for
me to hold. My normal grip has the distance between my thumb and index finger
and the nib tip measuring about 0.75 inches. The ergo grip of this pen increases
that distance to more than 1 inch, which changes the dynamic of my writing (not
for the better). I compensate by positioning my hand lower down at the very
bottom of the ergo area where the plastic flanges out, which is not where my
fingers are supposed to be, and my middle finger ends up being very sore after
less than 5 minutes of writing. As a result, I won't be using it as often and
for as long as I'd like to.
It's too bad because I really like the XF nib and inkflow, which I have had no
issues with. Depending on where you like to position your fingers though, the
ergo grip may or may not work for you.
P.S. Jet Pens' service was awesome!
