The squishy soft grip of the Alpha gels are so addictive that Uni has been multiplying its line like bunnies.

All other comfy grips seem like hard rubber compared to an Alpha gel. It is the same gel that is famous for keeping an egg from breaking even when dropped from a 5 ft height.

The Alpha Gel HD line has a slightly firmer grip than the standard Alpha Gel, and comes in colored bodies that match the grip color. Also features a handy clip for securing on to pockets or notebooks. Sooth your tired hands with an Alpha Gel pen today!

I have the blue barrel...
February 20, 2011
I have the blue barrel pencil (not the silver one) and I am VERY happy with it. ^^

-Lower ring of grip for people who grip the pencil at the base. (it's super low though so i don't use it)
-It's the exact same height as the shaka series
- Feels/looks more expensive than the shaka series (full metal body and metal tip/head, whereas the shaka series is just a metal-looking/chrome plastic)
- While the grip isn't as squishy as the shaka series, it uses the same type of material. In the non-HD series, the grip has a weird plastic coating that tends to rip easily. (The HD has a much better grip than the regular version.)
- The eraser is bigger on this pencil than on the shaka series pencils. However, i don't use the erasers anyways (looks better) sooo i could really care less about this.

-The grip is not as squishy as the shaka shaker series pencil (I have the green shaka version)
-The clip definitely doesn't look as good as the shaka series ones.
-Not a shaky pencil -___- (big downer)
- If there's a long lecture, i tend to choose the shaka series pencil b/c it's easier to shake the lead out at a moment's notice in order to keep writing notes at a fast pace. However, I choose this pencil if i'm just jotting down little things here and there.

Uni-ball Alpha Gel HD...
October 15, 2009
Uni-ball Alpha Gel HD Pencil - 0.5 mm

- Gel grip provides comfort in extensive or very fast writing.
- Grip near the end of the pencil provides hold for those who like to write down low.
- Good weight, better balance than the Original series.

- Although it has a clip unlike the Original series, this clip becomes very loose and people who move around a lot will often find the pen slipping in their pockets.
- The gel has a higher chance of being ripped than the Original.

Overall, this pencil is recommended for everyday writers.

The uniball alpha gel...
June 5, 2009
The uniball alpha gel HD is okok good, but i recommend the shaka shaker pencil because you can shake it, and the grip is squishier (the HD one is a bit firmer) anyways, great... but remember to not grip it too hard... or... it will RIP! Trust me
