Based off the Eco's feed there is a flat spot on the feed but no corresponding notch in the grip so it can rotate freely, I suspect it's the same on the Eco T although I don't yet have my hands on one.
That's incorrect. The feed is not fixed and you can rotate it according to your preference, which IMO is a nice alternative to the Lamy Safari if the Fixed nib doesn't suit you.
Also, I wouldn't say the facets are very subtle. They are subtle, but add a significant level of grip to the section when compared to the Original Eco. The Facets aren't as substantial as the Lamy Safari, which has an emphasized articulation of the section, but I think the Eco provides a happy medium between a rounded section and something like the Lamy Safari. The Facets taper further back up the section towards the body so you get the feel of a rounded section but with a benefit of a faceted section as the facets enlarge closer to the nib where they flare out to nice subtle, but significant lips that have a nice concave shape that contours the finger tips nicely providing good surface area for traction for your fingers.
The Eco-T is quite comfortable and I think they did a great job on providing customers with a happy medium between a rounded and faceted section.
If you like the Lamy Safari I think you'll like the Eco T, and if you don't like the Lamy Safari, the Eco-T is different enough where I think you still may like the Eco-T.
As with the Original Eco, you get a great package with a sturdily built pen, a sturdy little pen case with needed accessories, and a great nib that now has an improved section IMO.
