Default Mechanism Question

Played around with a Mont Blanc the other day and noted how nice the transmission was on the pen. When you twisted it to bring out the point it would get to a point then basically pop into place. I have yet to find a twist kit with anything close to that nice of operation. Has anyone found anything close? I would really like to offer a pen that has that kind of quality feel to it.

Browse our vendor Catalog for your IAP code- we'd love your feedback.

Let me know if you ever do... Sadly pretty much everything we have is rather cheap china made stuff. (IMHO)
I am not sure is there is one kit that is a "perfect pen" They all have some issue or another that could easily be fixed with some care. Take loose fitting slimline centerbands for example.

Have you tried the perfect fit? It has a very smooth transmission.

The perfect fit comfort pen has that same type of movement in the mechanism. It is also double twist.

I have never seen a double twist mechanism with the perfect fit. It is a black plastic mechanism that will function well with both a parker ballpoint refill or a schmidt mechanical pencil refill.
