These Stad One-Push pencil...
, July 7, 2010
These Stad One-Push pencil extenders/lengtheners/holders are awesome! I've been
in search of the perfect ones for a couple years now ever since I started buying
expensive pencils such as the Mitsubishi Hi-Uni and the California Republic
Palomino pencils. I've tried about 4 or 5 different styles. These are by far my
favorite! They are just the right weight, size, and texture - the whole body is
really smooth aluminum (there's no rubber grip). The cap/button also has an
eraser under it. The eraser diameter is the same as the Tombow One Twist Mini
erasers, and you could in fact replace it with one.
They're so comfortable, I almost wish I could use them with my full sized
pencils as well. They are super easy and quick to put the pencil in our out,
which is a big plus since I sharpen pencils a lot. They grip the pencil really
well and don't let the pencil move around once it sort of "locks" in (although
sometimes you have to twist the pencil until the grip mechanism is all the way
back like it is when there is no pencil in it.) I highly recommend these if
you'd like to get a little more mileage out of your pencil stubs.

This is a great tool...
, February 19, 2012
This is a great tool for extending a pencil and/or making a pencil more
comfortable, but the quality of the "claw" that extends when you push on the
button feels cheap. It's made of aluminum, so the holder itself is lightweight,
but the aluminum doesn't seem durable (who knows, I haven't had it for too long,
so it could prove to be??) and the machining of the claw is rough with a lot of
sharp edges. It also doesn't fully retract once the pencil is inserted. The rest
of the holder looks good, and it feels good in the hand, but the claw mechanism
doesn't impress me.
