I was so happy to see this at Jetpens. I've got 4 other Kuru Toga pencils, from
the plastic and metal collections, but I saw these Alpha Gel models while
browsing Ebay. I had to have one, and love that I could get it in a few days,
instead of waiting on international shipping.
The pencil itself is great. I like a wider grip, and the gel is very
comfortable. The hardest part of using a Kuru Toga is not rotating the pencil as
you write, since it does it for you. I find myself rotating the other models as
I go, but the gel seems to help me remember to keep it stationary.
This version is also pretty light, close to the plastic model, so it's
comfortable for long stretches of writing. Highly recommended.
