You might want to forgive...

You might want to forgive the first review where they complain about something
to do with a retractable nib. DUDE IT IS $2.00 Fricken dollars what do you
expect? This is penny for penny the best mechanical pencil on jet pens, but
again it is only 2 bucks so don't expect high craftsmanship and superb
engineering. What you can expect is a good looking, fun design, in a pencil that
is good to hold and writes very well, and I will add has a retractable tip.
IT IS 2 BUCKS so it is not going to take a beating so the reviewer who complains
about it not being able to take a ton of abuse, use your brain when deciding
what purpose something is designed for. It is not fair to rate items 2 stars
becasue it breaks when it is not designed to take a bunch of abuse. If it were
it would be higher priced. Come on people get it together. I understand most of
you are under 12 years old but I expect more out of you judgment than this.

I picked up two of these pens as honestly, I needed $4 bucks to get the free
shipping, so I thought why not. Turned out to be a great choice! I've been
wanting a mechanical pencil with a retractable sleeve for a while, I'm sick of
stabbing myself in the leg when it's in my pocket. This pencil writes very
smoothly and contrary to another review, does not wobble much if at all. My only
knock on this guy is the eraser, that thing is quite flimsy when you use it, but
that's not stopping me from carrying this one with me on the road. Overall, well
worth the two bucks!

I thought I was getting a good deal with a retractable nip and nice design, BUT
I was mistaken. The pencil seems to be made of very poor quality, and the nib
is WAY to wobbly. The way the pencil is made also makes for a very non- smooth
write, which isn't very helpful at all. I would not recommend anyone to buy

I liked this pen! Liked. I broke it after trying to fix it. The lead broke
inside the pencil and I took it apart to fix it but after I got the broken lead
out every time I click it the lead would just fall out like it didn't fit. The
metal lead holder would wiggle a lot more too. It was kind of sad but I can
still write with it. The function is good because the tip is protected but
that's all. A pencil box would protect the pencil without fail really.

I thought I was getting a great deal for a pencil that had a retractable nib,
but no. The nib has TOO much wobble in it. The retractable nib makes no
difference to me if the nib is a piece of junk. The nib wobbles about a full
millimeter in whatever direction you aren't trying to move the pencil.
It's a nice design, but terrible mechanics. Only reason I give it more than a 1
star is because if held at gun-point, I might be able to bring myself to use it.
That, and it's better (in some regard...) than a pencil that didn't have a
retractable nib with the same amount of wobble. I'd give it a 1.5 if I could.
TL;DR Bad pencil, too much wobble.
