The mechanism is super quality, and works perfectly. I have compared with other models.
But the barrel plastic quality maybe it can improved.
And the most important thing, if there were put a metal ring in the lower sliding area, it was more than perfectly.

I ordered both the black and white versions of this pencil. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is the eraser cover on the black one is a bit loose. Since the white one is flawless, I assume this is just a production fluke. Also, the eraser is a little hard to use with the lead sleeve out due to the softness of the eraser. It sits really close to the end of the pencil. Great pencil for the price though. Can't beat a $2 pencil with a retractable lead sleeve.

These pencils are a variation to the Alvin Draft-Tec Retrac pencils, which come as 0.38, 0.5, and 0.7 lead sizes. The Alvin pencils are just slightly heavier than the Sun-Star and have a rubber grip plus eraser. The mechanisms, however, are identical, and the Sun-Star is a fraction of the cost of an Alvin pencil.

I have all three Sun-Star pencils and use them as "grab" pencils. I leave them lying around (computer table, phone table, night stand, etc.) just within reach when I might need to jot something down or make a quick list.
