Before, the pen used to scratch its holder a little, so after a long period of use some of the color would get scratched off. Really not a big deal and I didn't care about that since the pen covered the damage when not in use. But apparently enough high-maintenance people complained so that they must have tweaked the design - now the pen doesn't clasp so tightly it scratches, but the flip side is that now the pen just drops right out of the pad if held upside down. Considering I use this to take notes at work as well as hiking in the woods, this is a huge problem. I lose the pen just pulling the pad out or returning it to my pocket. I once lost the pen for a day or two.
If the situation I am encountering is a fluke that only happened to my particular pad, I would love to be corrected so I can continue getting these products. But for the time being my otherwise perfect score for this has been tainted by a rather problematic design flaw.
There's been several times I've needed to trade phone numbers, or write down some quick notes where paper wasn't immediately available. It just feels great to pull this out and to know I have a paper and pen with me everywhere.
I had a cheap knock off version of this Wellspring Flip Note years ago that I also loved...but the metal was very thin and flimsy and quickly got bent up and dented.
This Wellspring however is made of very sturdy heavy duty metal. I've had no dents or bends in the metal yet and I've been carrying it for over a year now.
It looks great, it feels great, and it works great!
I've since bought several others to give as gifts. I love how these are available in such a wonderful array of colors and designs!
I love my Wellspring Flip Note!
I've now owned this Flip Note for over 2 years...and I carry it with me still just about everyday.
I've found all sorts of uses for this little thing! Grocery lists, reminders, a place to write down quotes that I'd like to remember...heck I even got to whip it out in a criminal justice class final project I was a part of in college...where we had to investigate a crime scene. I needed to write down some measurements but didn't have a notebook on me. I whipped this out of my shirt pocket and really felt all 'official' and stuff! lol :P
It's still in fantastic shape too! None of the paint has chipped off, there's no scratches, and I've yet to get any dents in this thing. The metal truly is very sturdy!
I'm so thrilled with the purchase of this flip note!!
These notepads come in two versions, apparently, which isn't all that clear in descriptions. I bought two of each:
1) The Signature Flip Notes feature a cover that can be folded all the way behind the notepad, which makes it fit one's hand very well while taking notes while standing. A small magnet holds the cover closed. The pen does not have to be removed to open the note pad. My brown faux leather one measures 2-7/8x4-3/8x3/8.
2) The Metal Flip Notes are, indeed, made of metal. The cover doesn't fold past 180 degrees, so it's best used while flat on a surface. The pen is held by both front and back; or, put another way, the inserted pen holds the front and back closed. You have to remove the pen at least half-way up to open it. My metal one measures 2-7/8x4-3/8x1/4 (slightly thinner than the Signature).
Both versions use the same kind of pen and same kind of paper pads. You can write on a note and immediately tear it out if you want to give it to someone else.
Both versions are truly pocket-sized, which is exactly what we were looking for. For me, to go in a shirt pocket. My lady friend carries a very small pocketbook, and she finds it fits perfectly.
The Wellspring note pads some in a huge variety of cover designs. I think they'd make great gifts.
