Flippin' WE Streak

I recently got a WE Streak and I like most things about it, except the action of the flipper. I don't own many flippers (only two) and was hoping this may entice me to buy more, though it is a tough sell.

A simple light switch type actuation doesn't really cut it. Pushing it inward towards the handle works, albeit at the cost of finger tip. Often I either have to flick it the rest of the way open or it just fails to deploy altogether. With gloves, I don't think this would be an issue at all since I could push a bit harder without discomfort. However, I rarely am wearing gloves when I use a knife.

Does any have any tips for this particular model or flippers in general?
