March 19, 2012
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!

very cool pencil, it took me a bit to figure out though: pressing the button all the way will push the pencil top bit in or out, and clicking slightly will make the lead come out. It's also a very pretty pencil :)

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.

The lead breaks a bit easily and writes quite faintly. But overall it does it's job and works fine for me.

It does meet all of the features that it claims to have, and has a great write overall. However, it gets to be quite wobbly and it feels a bit plastic and cheap. I bought it because of the cute design and that part does not disappoint me at all.

I have to agree with @jlanedc18. For a pencil of this price, it preforms flawlessly. Cheap, but writes smoothly and incorporates great design. What else are you asking for. It is a very light pencil, being made of primarily plastic, but I find myself lending it to people who ask me for a pencil to use. Easily replaceable, available in a plethora of colors, and plain sexy, I have to -1 star because it's not a pencil that I can use for long periods of time. I'm a squishy grip sort of guy. NEVERTHELESS, I LOVE IT.

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 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 this product.
