  The reviewer who said..., November 22, 2010
The reviewer who said this feels like a dart WAS right. If it wasn't so expensive I might be tempted to use it next time I got to the bar. Works just fine, I actually really like the grip on this and how far it rides up the barrel. What I just can't fathom is why in the world would pilot make this with see through plastic. I know it would be a weight issue, but I don't know I would have just prefered them to use aluminum or something more sturdy. Other than that I really like It and recommend it.

A well executed pencil. Just the right amount of grip. Smartly styled right down to the wrap around pocket clip. And unlike so many mech pencils it's solid - doesn't feel like internal parts are rattling around when you write. One of my every day pencils!

  I first used the S series..., October 20, 2010
I first used the S series pencils after I found one at Wal-Mart, so I sprung for this one when I saw the more elegant design. The balance is great and the pencil is beautiful, and -- at the risk of inviting criticism -- I used 400 grit sandpaper to reduce the sleeve to about 1/3 its standard length. By doing that the pencil is better suited for general writing and still has all of its design qualities.

  My 2nd JetPens review...., January 18, 2009
My 2nd JetPens review. Are you proud of me?

This Pilot S10 0.5 mm mechanical pencil looks and feels like a dart. And it writes on target like one too. I'm almost 100% certain that if you add flights, the wingy thingies on darts, that you could toss bull's eye's all day long with this pencil.

The weight of its longer than normal metal grip section just somehow seems to propel this pencil along the paper with a natural flow and makes me feel more assured and confident in my line work. And the click button gives the most satisfying click of any clicker that I've ever clicked before.

Yeah, there are mechanical pencils with more adjustability than this one, and I love my fiddly pencils as much as the next person, but this is the most solid natural feeling pencil I've used so far.

This pen is a definite bull's eye!
  Probably my favourite..., June 13, 2014
Probably my favourite drafting pencil among my small collection. It looks great and it feels great. Mind you the price is a little on the higher side but the quality and feel really show. Its the first tip heavy mechanical pencil so it took a while to get use to but I actually prefer it. The edgy cap where my fingers press into actually makes my hand tired while writing exams but that's just nitpicking at this point. The feel of the knurled grip, the brushed metal parts, even the transparent plastic body all look and feel amazing. It has a professional look to it yet still has that element of fun. If only it wasn't a transparent black body but a blue one, I would be extremely happy. Still, the S10 stood by me as I plowed through my final year.

Just a warning to other S10 owners or to-be owners, the tip can be rather dangerous to yourself and itself. I've seen someone bend their S10 tip before resulting in failure to advance the lead. Luckily I was able to fix it by rounding out the tip again.
