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.
