Coming from a Stentura LX MANY years, having definite trouble adjusting to Diamante.
Getting ALOT more "shadow" letters than prior, as well as stacking. Haven't found the stroke-depth/tension adjustments to get me as fast and clean as pre Diamante after a few weeks already. The posted comments are very helpful, though. Stenograph advised as deep a stroke and strongest tension as possible to cure problems,but even that isn't cleaning things up. if I'm going to have to work hard to adjust my writing style, I might as well do it and get the benefit of the "easy-glide" feel the Diamante can provide at the short/light settings. Seem logical?
PS even if I can never recoup my glory days of Clean and Fast, I don't think I can give up the Diamante's weight, look, display, etc.
