Let me ask you if you would purchase a mechanical pencil that was cute, unique design, works flawlessly, quite comfortable to hold, and offered .5mm lead and it was only $4.00?

If you answered yes I suggest you get 2 of these so you have different color to use for fun. WOW for $2.00 this is penny for penny the best pencil on Jetpens guaranteed. Many $5.00 don't compare to this. It would be nice if they would carry all of the colors on the section picture but hey at least they have the few colors they do. I would pick a couple up if I were you before they are all gone and never come back.

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.

I want to like this pencil more than I do because of the innovative design. However the entire pencil just wobbles so much I rarely use it for fear of breaking it. I also have the eraser cap popping off in my bag all the time and I'm not a fan of that. It's a decent pencil, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who is serious with their writing implements.

This pencil is less than ok... I was disappointed with how the metal part wasn't strong. If I write something, the whole pencil just wiggles. I guess the price is worth it, but I would spend that to buy another lead or something.

I liked this pencil a lot- it has a nice color and the grip is fairly comfortable. I like the design of the barrel and it fits well in a pencil case (although it is a bit wide).

Unfortunately, I probably wouldn't recommend this pencil, as it is fairly fragile. It works alright if you do not use much pencil lead when you write, but if you leave the lead out too far, the tip that holds it can break pretty easily. This happened to my pencil about 3 weeks after I started using it. Without the tip that holds the lead, it will wobble around, breaking the lead very easily and making it near impossible to write.

I write with quite a bit of pressure though, so if you do not press very hard when writing, this will likely not become an issue.
