DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
The squishy soft grip of the Alpha gels are so addictive that Uniball 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.

This pencil has a SHAKER option. You can either click or shake the pencil to extend the lead. Just change the setting by pushing the top cap all the way down to transform it into a shaker pencil. So now you can squish, shake and click your way through class and/or work.

I love this pencil. I deducted one star because after about 6 months the grip started to break. I don't know if I can replace it. I have purchased the slim version of this pencil, I like it even more.

It has a comfortable grip
It has a shaker
Looks pretty nice

Grip attracts dust
Grip rips easily
It is pretty easy to break

Overall, I would get a different pencil that would last a longer time for the same price! If you don't really care and you just want to use it for like 6 months go for it!

The Uni-ball Alpha Gel 0.5 series are quite good. Check it's pros and cons.

-You can shake it to advance the lead.
-The grip is super squishy and will definitely relieve stress.
-Features a clip, cap, and eraser.

-Grip will rip quite easily
-Clip, eraser, and cap are still basic.
-May not fit into some binders or notebooks (Alpha Slim Series are recommended in this case).
-The pencil jams at times.
-Quite expensive

Overall, this pencil is good, with a really great grip. But with it's bad grip durability, other performance issues that occur every once in a while, and high price tag, the Alpha Gel loses some reliability. Still, it is a great pencil.
