I was -really- hopeful for this pencil component, but upon using it, it's a bit clunky. The clicking motion is difficult to get at first. I struggled to figure it out, even with the video tutorial. It just takes clicking it harder than you think you might need to. But the biggest problem I have with these Coleto pencil components is that the metal barrel spins within the plastic lead-holding tube part. Basically it results in the whole pencil component rotating towards the flat side of the mechanical pencil lead. It's impossible, no matter how I turn the whole pen, to write with the sharp tip of the pencil because the metal always rotates within it's own component. I'm relatively heavy handed, but even writing lightly with it has the same result over time. I also own the .5mm mechanical pencil component and it does the same thing.

This mechanical pencil component absolutely DOES NOT WORK VERY WELL. I put mine into a Coleto sweet 4 and while I'm writing with it, it retracts every few minutes. I have tried changing the amounts of pressure I use while writing, I have tried to extend the component slowly just until it locks, but no matter what, it retracts while writing. This is beyond annoying, I don't feel like I got what I paid for....

A great addition to the Coleto, especially if one wants to write thin and neat lines with a 0.3 mm pencil. However, the method of lead advancement is rather awkward to operate.

Unlike the .3mm gel refills, I really like this mechanical pencil refill. I am not a frequent pencil user, but this is a very good option for tracing lines for cuts, etc. Like it, and will purchase again.
Love this pencil component!...

Love this pencil component! I was a little worried at first because it seems so delicate compared to the pen components but, with a little patience, I am now a huge fan. I followed the directions in the description and refilled several leads with ease after several failed attempts because I was trying to refill from the wrong end. I am so pleased that I purchased one for a gift and plan on getting more.

Been using this for about a week now, and it's been working just fine. I just refilled it last night and it took a bit of time (and a lot of clicking) to advance the new lead through the tip.
