Have used this pen for about 10 years. I like its shape in my fingers. Always REALLY liked the "grippy" rubber bottom which makes the pen easier to grasp. New order (15 pens) arrived Feb. 2018 has same great shape,but the "grippy" part seems to have been replaced with a harder textured, "slippery" material which for me requires more effort to grasp. Still like this pen though.
