Had mine since Aug.
- I had to tinker with the EF nib to get it to feel right TO ME. I am a bit fussy on that. Now it writes like a champ, a smooth writer.
- No issues with cracking.
- I do not post the pen, as that makes the pen too tail-heavy for me.
- I like how light the pen is. Great for long writing sessions, my hand does not get tired holding it, like it does with heavy pens.
- Diameter-wise, it is just marginally OK for me. If the body or section were any fatter, I could not use it. I would like a slim version, with the body 1 or 2 mm smaller in diameter.
- I wish the cap and piston knob were CLEAR.

Reviving an old thread with a question:

Now that you guys have had your Ecos for a while, have the cracking issues indeed been resolved? I love the look and function of this pen more by the minute (especially after seeing the white pen/blue ink combos upthread *drool*) but the stories I've heard about cracking in TWSBI pens has me pretty nervous when I consider the alternatives that aren't known for that.

 

No problems at all with mine. Good pen, happy I bought it (so happy, in fact, that I went out and bought the other one recently so that I have both the black and white models).
