Pelikano Jr works for me, but I have tiny hands (I'll never be much as a pianist because I can't stretch an octave!). I'm thinking that Lamy 2000 might not be a bad pen for you to stack up against the 'cigars' - I'd be interested to see how it compares on ergonomic friendliness. Laban Mento as well, which I think has already been mentioned.
Too many pens, too little time!

I'm a women with long slender fingers. I find a softer nib is also easier to write with but a wet noodle takes too much concentration for everyday writing.

... I find a softer nib is also easier to write with ...
Ergonomics and nibs: a while back I had a long marking stint, and at the end of day one using a Lamy Safari my wrist was hurting. For the second day I switched to an Esterbrook J with an Osmiroid soft fine nib, and the wrist was fine. Might have been the change in the section shape/grip, but I think it was the softer nib cushioning my wrist as I wrote.

My writing habits have undergone a change recently, because I've managed to develop a vexing case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in both (!) wrists.
Please look out at this solution in this case:
