Well, the inevitable happened. The clip on my EWP-01 finally broke and before I could get through to Surefire CS for a replacement (they just didn't pick up) my pen slid out of my pocket and disappeared. I figure that I got my money out of it after 6 years of continuous use. I had my gripes.... - the anodizing was slick - the tip backed itself out all the time - the triangular shape didn't give the user much freedom to grip the pen normally. - the loud crack it would make if you dropped it on a table during a meeting was distracting - And the worst part ... it seemed slightly top heavy for comfortable writing. I do miss being able to use nearly ANY refill. And this negated any complaint I had. My question: Are there any EWP-01 users that recommend another pen. Something that gives me the same flexibility, but resolves some of my issues (with the pen)?
