Are you ready to try something a little different? I have discovered a pen
that has a personality disorder…it can’t decide if it wants to be a pen or a
stylus, or whether it wants to be held with a thin grip or a fat rubberized
Based on Cross’s popular Morph line, the looks of this pen are slightly
Why would you want to even consider such an attention-grabbing pen?
Simple – it writes like a dream, and you can customize the grip to fit your
Through some modern miracle of engineering, the same center band that you
twist to extend the pen’s tip, is also where you twist to change the size of
the Morph’s grip. Once you start twisting, these “ribs” will start to
appear, from inside the silicone cover. These ribs can get pretty large,

the end to feel cushy on your fingers. The way the grip expands should fit just
about anyone’s needs.
All of the attention is drawn to where your fingers will be when you are
using the writing tip of the Morph – this creates the only “con” that I
can find to this pen:
When you flip it to use the stylus end, it is obviously not as comfortable. I
don’t recommend writing for extended periods of time in this manner –
however, for quick look-ups, and entries, you should have no problem or
There is no way that I could get through this review without mentioning the
case that the Morph comes in – the word coffin comes to mind…J
