Verified Purchase
I've got to say- this pencil is the favorite of my six (yes, six) alpha gels. It looks a lot better in real life than it does on a computer screen, and the grip is squishy but not overly squishy. This pencil is probably not only my favorite alpha gel, but my favorite writing utensil in general. Just get it!

Verified Purchase
I think the squishy part will only rip if you're playing around or biting it or doing something weird. I think that as long as you keep it safe in a pencil case and don't try to eat it, it will be fine.

I love this design, by the way.

Verified Purchase
The Uni Alpha Gel series are probably one of my top 5 pencils! I like the fact that you can just simply shake the pencil to advance more lead. Overall design is fantastic, however I don't usually like the clips of mechanical pencils since they get in the way for me. ( I have super large hands for a woman haha. ) Other than that, this pencil is a must have!

Verified Purchase
This is by far the best pencil i have ever had the pleasure of using.

-Super Soft and squishy grip
-Amazing Colour
-Lock feature is incredibly useful
-it looks better in real life than on the Jetpens site, on which it already looks amazing.

-when using the lock feature the cap may not stay stationary, a small quirk that does not matter much.

in total, one of the best purchases i have ever made, keep it out of the hands of people with "Sticky fingers" and you will be the happiest writers of all time.

Uni-ball Alpha Gel Shaka...
Uni-ball Alpha Gel Shaka Shaker Pencil - 0.5 mm

- Perfect balance in weight.
- Gel provides comfort in people who tend to write fast or extensively.
- Revised clip, better than the HD series one.
- Shaker is okay.

- Grip rips very easily, good care is recommended to avoid this.
- The shaking mechanism sometimes jams.
- No lower grip for writers who grip the pencil low.
