  You might want to forgive..., March 19, 2012
By jla...
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 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 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.

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.

** I did not buy this from Jetpens, but have bought it before.

This pencil is pretty good, but you need to be light with it. This pencil is VERY fragile. I broke it in 2 days. So if you are a bit rough with your pens, this is not the pencil for you.
