It's definitely not pretty or girly if that's what you're after, but despite the
fact that it's not a looker, I still find myself using it over some of the
fancier pencils in my pouch. It's very comfortable to write with over long
periods of time. I used it to write a two page essay and my hand didn't cramp or
get tired. The side click is pretty useful if you don't want to change your grip
and go through the trouble of finding the angle you were writing at. The colour
is a nice garnet red, but I wish I'd gotten it in blue.
I bought three of these pens, one each red, green, and blue with the matching
Uni-Ball colored leads to replace some of the items i lost when my pen bag was
stolen. This is a very good pencil, it works well and puts up with the abuse a
writing instrument takes when its owner does outside plant installations.
