When I bought this pencil...
May 17, 2010
When I bought this pencil a couple of years ago, I was not surprised at all by
its comfortable grip. I had already experienced the old, fat version of the
alpha gel. However, what really sets this pencil apart from the original is its
thin body and shaker ability. The shaker ability allows you to advance the lead
without changing hand positions. Its also fun to play with when you are bored.
Another neat thing about this pencil is the lead retracting mechanism. By
clicking the top down like you would with a pen, you can easily retract the
lead. Great pencil overall and in my opinion, the best of the alpha gel line.
