Verified Purchase
I love this mechanical pencil! I bought this pencil along with a few, but was not able to put this one down. I get a lot of compliments and when people see me shake my pencil they get all curious lol I recommend it, in fact, I'm going to buy the blue and yellow one for me again =)

I have a bias for soft grips, so I just didn't like this pencil very much. It does indeed have a good shaker engine, but I'm not really used to shaker pencils anyway. I like the sturdiness and weight of this pencil, but there's too much weight at the back of the pencil so the balance feels just awful. The pencil itself is very nice; the tip resembles that of a Hi-Tec-C Coleto gel refill in case if you were wondering. Also, it's a bit hard to tell, but the grip of this is made of rubber as per the specifications. The rubber grip on this pencil is so thin, though, it doesn't feel like anything. The design of this pencil is okay, but I still can't get used to the plunger (or whatever it's called) that you push to get the tip out. The whole pencil is pink and orange plastic, but the plunger is aluminum. It looks rather unpleasant and I wish they had made it out of orange plastic instead. The main selling point of this pencil is its delful-ness, or just the double feature of a retractable tip and a shaker mechanism. The Del part of this pencil really had me wondering why Pilot doesn't make all of its mechanical pencils come with a retractable tip. One thing to consider, though, the lead shaker still works when the tip is retracted. The lead doesn't come out that easily when the tip is inside, but it just feels like yet another derp moment courtesy of Pilot. Overall, I would recommend this for people looking for a casual pencil to carry in their pockets or purses (and man purses).
