DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
The Opt pencil is a quality instrument available at a fraction of its potential price. The sales slogan for this line in Japan is "Dress up!", and it was designed to accompany business people and travelers. It features a broad body for an ergonomic hold, a push clip that can be used to clip this pencil onto thicker objects, and a shaker function! This means that you can just shake the pencil and the internal weight mechanism extends the lead for you! No need to click (though pencil includes this feature)!

I don't know why everyone is getting this pencil fairly bad reviews...This pencil works really good! Nice smooth grip, writing is REALLY smooth, and the shaker function works well. Weight distribution could be better. But excellent pencil.

Great Mechanical Pencil with good comfortable shape for men with big hands, like me. Nice grip. Only problem is refilling the damned lead. Does anyone have any tips on how to get a pencil lead into that tiny hole without breaking, losing the lead or your sanity. You have to keep the lead advancer depressed in order to get the lead in. At 76 my eyesight ain't that great. Any tips would be appreciated.

I found this pencil a little after a month ago and this product is just a sloppy form of the pilot 2020 in my opinion. after using this for a few days the shaker function stopped working and the lead broke inside the pencil. The eraser is small aswell. I would just suggest getting the fure fure pilot shaker pencil, much more useful.
