I bought this pencil...
I bought this pencil hearing that it reduces cramps and I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
- Doesn't cramp your hands (even though the grip is pretty hard like other reviewers mentioned)
- Doesn't look cheap
-Very comfortable weight (not too heavy, not light at all) - great for spinning around
-Writes very smoothly (almost like you're gliding across the paper)
-Twist eraser (it's actually a very long eraser that works great)
-Nice price for a Niiiiiiiiice pencil
- Isn't slim, like most of the pencils I prefer to use, but it's not too thick either. So I can live with it.
-The refill erasers don't match the pencil color as nicely as the eraser that came with it, but it hardly matters.
-Grip is harder than I normally prefer, but it's still very comfortable which is remarkable.
Would I recommend this to my friends and others?
heck yes! this pencil is great for those who write a lot because it's very comfortable.

This pencil is great!...
This pencil is great! ;). Although the grip is very hard, I feel very comfortable when using the pencil. The twisty eraser feature is awesome, and the lead advancement is very smooth. The center of gravity is truly evenly distributed, and it feels like you are flying across the paper. The grip is hard, but it's comfortable when writing with a proper hand placement. There's nothing big about the clip, but it does its job.

I have several great mechanical pencils (but nothing expensive, just fun), but now find myself reaching for this one first. I think it's because it rests in my hand so nicely and is also so lightweight. I am buying another one.

Only complaint is that...
Only complaint is that the grip is a little hard. Smooth, but hard. The pencil is pretty good value and normal size. The eraser size is pretty good too. Recommend it for big-handed people.

Perfect pencil on the...
Perfect pencil on the cheaper end. Twist wide eraser is useful, replaceable and actually erases. The grip is comfortable and not too squishy. The retracting tip works great. It is not fat, and it is not thin, so "just right" (e.g. my GraphGear1000 is narrower and my PaperMate PhD is fatter). Nice combination of features.
The plastic can make it fragile. Car door smashed/warped it enough it's dead, but I'll get another.
