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.

really good pencil for people who like shakers and shakys are new to them, but if shakers are no big deal for you like me then i would prefer the original uni-ball or the
HD one.

Good pencil, I have the...
Good pencil, I have the slim version which is really good but I recently bought this because I thought the slim was a little too slim for my hand... but now that I have this, my writing is really easy. I think that the grip, if you don't squish it too much, it WILL NOT rip but if you keep playing with it and squishing it it will eventually rip. Luckily I don't get into the habit of doing that, and if you don't either then this pencil is right for you! :)

this is a great pencil,...
this is a great pencil, but the grip rips over time.

fells great
good with shaky

grips breaks
small eraser
shaky spring bends
clip bends
a little thing in the pencil that holds led in place falls out, lead extends to much

over all, great pencil if you can take care of it like your own baby. if you are like me good luck. keep away from babies, dogs, and everyone!!! i've had this pencil over two years. i'm going to buy a new one and protect it like a baby. my shaky spring and was bent by
a baby. little thing in pencil fell out as i was fixing a jammed lead. the grip will always rip. so don't grow your nails out. the grip is from heaven. shaky awesome. i give it a four.
