Simple, handy-dandy little item that I don't have occasion to use that often, but it's small enough that it's no trouble to keep in a pen case. I've tried it on different girth-size pencils & it works equally well on regular pencils or odd ones like an American Jumbo. I usually prefer mechanical pencils but sometimes they're not allowed (like on test answer sheets) or I want to use colored pencils. I have small-to-avg.-sized hands (for a woman for myself) so most writing tools are fine for me in size, but I have arthritis so like a thicker girth & cushioned grip. Would also be good for larger hands or small children. Bright blue is nice w/o being gawdy.

This Pencil Clip Grip...

This Pencil Clip Grip really works how it's supposed to, for the most part, however I am a bit picky about certain things.

PROS:
Vivid color
Comfortable Texture
Durable against drops and fidgeting with it

CONS:
Won't fit well for pencils that are small, If they're a bit too small then they'll slide around a bit.
It tends to pick up tiny bits of lint that stick to it easily, requiring a damp cloth to get it clean again.

In conclusion, I would buy this product again! (Same review may be found for Tombow Ippo Pencil Clip Grip - Pink)

Don't get me wrong, I...

Don't get me wrong, I think that this could be very useful for a child to use when they're learning how to write, but I'm really not fond of this grip.

I love the Tombow Olno Body Knock Mechanical Pencil, and I thought that I could use this grip to turn any pencil into one of those--the grips look similar, don't they? Unfortunately, this grip isn't made of the same material, and is slippery. Not only is the material slippery, but this grip doesn't have a good grip (not pun intended) on the pencil. This grip keeps sliding down forward, on my pencils, which causes me to have to keep readjusting it.

I would encourage everyone to consider these critiques before buying one of these, especially as a substitute for the Tombow Olno Body Knock Mechanical Pencil.

This is definitely more...

This is definitely more of a grip than an extender, at least for my paws. Even if it can accept fairly small stubs, I'm not sure if I could comfortably use the pencil.

If this were to be ignored, it is actually a rather nice grip. It holds solidly onto the pencil and provides a bit more comfort than holding onto the barrel directly. For those who are used to larger pens -- fountain pen users like myself, as an example -- this can be useful if you plan on using a pencil for a long(er) period.

The grip itself has quite a lot of grip/tack which makes me worry a bit about how long it will stay clean. But this same quality is a virtue as there is no slippage while using the pencil. It also can handle quite a few sizes ranging from typical #2 size to Tombow Mono, which normally can't be handled by extenders, to even larger pencils. This flexibility alone is worth the small cost to have it in anyone's kit. Having more than one isn't really needed as it just slips over the pencil quickly and easily.

On the whole I'm glad I bought this.
