I was wondering what others might have to say, regarding the materials for Conid's pens. I am curious, as to the stability of the materials to environmental/time/and everyday bumps and drops. I have had a Pilot 832, currently on a trip to Pilot after the body/section joint sustained a fall, The crack apparently is not all that uncommon for this model, as I have seen several mentions of this on FPN and Reddit. It cracks just in the right place, to cause catastrophic failure of the pen, necessitating repair.
Now my concern with Conid is a similar in construction, is that the danger of a crack from a slight drop would be catastrophic as well. Does anyone have any thoughts on Acrylic vs Delrin vs ebonite in terms of risk of crack?
Also, in terms of longevity, what material would be most stable over time? I am aware of the oxidation of ebonite, and am concerned it may prove to be a concern, but likely not in my lifetime.
