These Fure Fure pencils are a newly released upgrade to the popular Pilot 2020 Shaker pencils. They are remodeled to feature tinted color bodies and a more modern white clip and grip. The Pilot 2020 Shaker pencil is one of Japan's most popular shaker pencils, and the upgraded Fure Fure line shares the same high quality function an affordable price.
How do Shaker pencils work? Just shake the pencil and the internal weight mechanism extends the lead for you! No need to click (though pencil includes this feature)! They are lots of fun to use and are great for students and professionals alike.

For the price:
Nice appearance. (Brighter than the picture. It looks a little more
bluish/tealish in real life).
The shaker function works well. Not too sensitive, lead never comes out in my
pencil case or anything like that.
The click has nice pressure to it.
The barrel is medium sized
The guide is long (when I measured, 2.5 millimeters) (which is nice for a pencil
you end up waving around all over the place shaking with all your might! But it
does help keep the lead stable, which is nice.)
For a cheap grip, it's a good grip.
On the downside:
The nozzle is too long! I feel like my hand is too far away from the paper when
I'm writing (especially with the exceptionally long guide!) Total, my hand is
always at least 2.5 cm away from the page. Too far for me.
The shaker function is not the smoothest in the world
BUT!!! For this price, it's definitely a nice pencil. I use it all the time in
class, and the shaker function is worth so much to me for notes. I love this
pencil. I would be sad if I ever lost it.
