  It's not a bad pencil...., December 9, 2010
By kis...
It's not a bad pencil. Not good either. Here's what I think:

Advantages:
- Has retractable tip
- Lead hardness and thickness indicator
- Good design

Disadvantages:
- Grip is slippery ( If you want to take a test using that pencil- DON'T risk your life- it will fall off your hands like soap). Grip literally SUCKS compared to Staetdler 925 25 05 silver series, Papermate pro touch II or Alvin Draftmatic.

- Eraser is horrible. Erases badly ones it gets dirty, it just spreads black lead all over the paper, making it dirtier.

- Pencil is balanced like wooden, i.e. center of mass is in the middle of the pencil. Personally i don't like it, because when you try to write/graph something with it, you can feel that pencil becomes heavy after like a minute.
- Too expensive for such an average pencil. Platinum Pro Use is much better than this pentel graphgear, yet it's half the price ($7.50).

Overall, I'm dissapointed with this pencil, but it's good when you keep it just for the sake of collection of mechanical pencils.

  This is the best pencil..., June 7, 2006
By alex5k
This is the best pencil I ever had had until my bratty lil niece threw it and broke the tip... I admit I almost had to kill her but i figured she could just pay me back so I am going to reorder :(
