The Long Click from Dayacom is my worst. I am hesitant to file away too much of the coupler, don't want there to be any wallowing around on the tube.

As I said, I use the Schmidt for every single pen that it will fit, I will continue to use it in non-click pens. If modifications work, I'll gladly put them to use.

Interesting timing, I was messing with a Civil War pen this weekend and couldn't figure out the cause. Sure enough it's got an Easyflow 9000 in it.

Generic refill works great. I tried a Schmidt P 900 and it works well too.

While the P 900 isn't as good as the EF9000 it's better than the standard supplied refills. May be a good option without having to mess with the components.

That being said, Ed a video sounds like it could be in the works, I'll be a viewer.

My personal pen is a Vertex with a S9000. Never a problem. The Stratis has the same mechanism and all I have made work perfectly with the S9000.

Just took a look at one, I have a hypothesis--expect will have a video by the end of the weekend.

The label also gets hung up on the Vertex click and the Bolt Action Tec pens.

I've had some Sierra Elegant Clicks that were a little sticky with 9000s. Now, if there's any question, I wrap a small punch with 500 grit and run it through the tip a few times--seems to smooth up the transition where the catch can occur.

Regards,
Michael

I hadn't made click pens for years because I was disappointed in all of the mechanisms. The only returns I ever had were click pens.

Then PSI came out with the Stratus and Vertex (Spartan as well, but I don't like the style as well.) Smoothest click mechanism I've seen. Nice long bodies, you can really show off wood or acrylic blanks. I sell quite a few of them now.

No, I made several attempts at getting it to "hang up" and never succeeded. Can't fix a problem I can't replicate.
