    On my cheap chinese bolt pen i had the same issue (no surprise giving the price) and i stretched the spring as well but that made the pen quite noisy when closing it. Dunno if that's also the case on the tactile turn but if it is you can add a slice of silicone tubing in the inside of the pen that will dampen the action and give it a nice dull thumb. No more rattle.

    I ordered a titanium Slider on the Cyber Monday deal; can't wait to get it! Are you guys still enjoying your Sliders/Gliders?

    The two pens I carry most often are a Ti Slider and a Black DLC Ti Slider. After some months I've demoted my MMC Ti Bolt Action to my laptop bag as a backup -- it's an awesome pen but I prefer the Sliders.

    I had Allison Miles from FlyAwayToys anodize this sublime Ti Glider. She's a beast at ano jobs.

    Her prices are quite reasonable actually. Just message her. She'll quote you based on the design and number of colors you choose. Here's the link I used.

    And here's another :censored: of the Glider next to my OG Ti Mover and Fellhoelter:[​IMG]
