Ahhh, what can I say, I've used this pencil since I was in 4th grade. By far the
pencil I've used the most, even made a BB shooter out of one of these (in grade
school at that). So heres my review.
Length - Decent, not real long, not real short, it works.
Pipe Length - About standard, not enough to make a difference on how I hold it
Tip - Works well enough, no gripes.
Grip - Has one.
Body - More of a solid piece, dont really have to worry about it unscrewing at
the tip, works well.
Clip - Standard, works well enough.
Cap - One mine, they've never slipped off, so thats a HUGE plus in my book.
Eraser - Has one, but I really dont use it. Some have the needle for clearing,
never needed it personally.
Finish - Kinda shiny, doesnt show scratches really, the shiny metal makes it
more appealing to the eye. The different body colors makes it easy to see what
lead size the pencil is.
Weight - On the lighter side, not a problem in my book, weight isnt really ever
an issue with me in pencils.
Lettering - Pretty decent, they placed it a good spot where it really wont get
rubbed off from using it consonantly.
Tip - Has unscrewed before while writing, nothing major, and again, this is the
pencil I've used the most in my writing.
Lead Indicator - Doesnt have one, I just write whatever lead softness I'm using
and tape it on the body below the cap.
Grip - Biggest problem, not that its a huge problem, but it tends to get
slippery when writing for hours. Wish the grip groves were more pronounced.
I love this pencil, I've gotten more used to other drafting pencils with better
grips and other features, but I wouldnt feel right not having one of these. For
the price, definitely worth having.
