Get your hands on this Japanese "shaker" pencil. Just shake the pencil and the internal weight mechanism e xtends the lead for you! No need to click (though pencil includes this feature)! As one of the most popular shaker pencils, the Pilot 2020 combines and affordable price with function.
See shaker pencils in action in the following JetPens.com TV video!
This pencil is very good, but there is not much to say about it. It's a shaker
pencil, has a rubber grip (not so special), and writes smoothly. I think this
color is the best out of all. The pencil also writes very smoothly. The price is
decent, so that is why I recommend this pencil.
This is my favorite mechanical pencil of all time! My uncle in Japan sent me one
6 years ago and I liked it so much that I was afraid to use it. I thought that I
might misplace it. I then found a blue one on Jetpens.com and I was so excited
that I bought one. However, I wanted another orange one and while I was in a
bookstore in New York I found one. Then Jetpens started carrying all of the neon
color Super Grip 2020s and now I do not have to go to New York to buy one!
I like this pencil for everything except the sliding sleeve on mine is
annoyingly scratchy. As long as the lead is sticking more that a millimeter it's
ok, but as soon as it gets short it has to be lengthened. At this point you
might be thinking - of course, that's what the shaker is for! But, a sliding
sleeve on other pencils like the Pentel "sliding sleeve Sharp" (that's what they
call it) is smooth and allows you to write until you've used about 4 mm of lead
before you have to click again. Too bad.
