I like the tenderfoot or the quikheel. Haven't used a neatnik, though, to compare. I do okay with the regular lancets, but I really appreciated the easier ones when i was starting, or when a babe is a little dehydrated.
ah, yeah, some of my NeatNicks don't work - or they have a delayed spring. If that's the only reason for the recall, I'm still using the ones that I have. I MUCH prefer them to pretty much everything else I've tried.
