About a year ago, at the suggestion of a friend I got a Platnum Curidas in smoke gray.
Not a bad pen, little needy as it wants to dry out when not used often, but if you use it on the regular it’s all good.
Then the “slow click” took affect.
It wasn’t until TODAY that I realized that when I last gave it a good flushing, I rinsed out the grease. The same grease that reduces the plastic-on-plastic friction.
Added a little silicon grease that came with my twsbi pens and TA-DA! It’s just as good as new.
Don’t forget to grease your plastic.
