Like its pen counterpart, the Uniball Mitsubishi Alpha Gel pencil takes ergonomic writing to the next level! All those other "comfy" grips seem like hard rubber compared to this one. The squishy, soft gel grip brings an instant "Oooooooo" to the users lips. It's the same gel that's famous for keeping an egg from breaking even when dropped from a 5 ft height! Let this liquidy soft gel grip pencil soothe your tired hands.
Takes .5mm lead. Streamlined pen body is clipless.
(This pen was first recommended to us by our customer Yumi. Thanks Yumi!)
- Stronger Grip than the Shaka Shaka Series, although less colourful within the
- Good Weight, build, and small grip near the end of the pencil helps for people
writing down low.
- The gel provides very good protection against flat middle fingers when writing
fast or for an extensive period of time.
- Major flaw in the design was that there was no clip.
- A little more on the light side.
Overall, this pencil is recommended for everyday writers.
Bought this a few months ago, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. Very comfortable, and not
too heavy. I don't mind the design, perhaps because I'm not a big fan of
pen/pencil clips. My only complaint is that bits of dust gather on the grip
inside my pencil bag. It's easy to clean the dust off, but after a while, it
starts to dull the grip color. I don't know if it's just me, but overall, I
would definitely recommend this pencil!
BTW: I bought a few for my friends as birthday gifts, they love it too~ :)
In the past I owned 2 alpha gels in the original series and l loved it so much.
I still have one from 3years ago that is still working perfectly. It is super
squishy and helps people who hold their pencil hard and for those who write for
long periods of time. Overall, this pencil is the best one I had in my life!
