The pencil is so soft...
, March 8, 2012
The pencil is so soft and squishy that it's irresistible. It truly was love at
first sight. The pencil has a real cool feeling and is worth it. The pencil is
very pretty. I recommend people to buy it.
This is a wonderful pencil....

This is a wonderful pencil. However, I cannot say the same about its 0.5mm
cousin. I have both and while both are fairly scratchy, the writing in this one
comes out clean and fine while that of the 0.5mm Alpha Gel slim looks too bold.
Aside from being slightly scratchy, this pencil also has the tendency to wobble
slightly as the end of the pencil is not fully secure. Nonetheless, this is
still a good pencil. There really aren't that much 0.3mm pencils and this is
definitely one of the best if you don't consider drafting pencils. Compared to
mechanical drafting pencils, the lead sleeve is much shorter, but consequently
much sturdier. As a result, I feel much safer throwing this into my pencil bag
for school than my other 0.3mm pencils. I like how it's still a needle tip,
unlike the Pilot Airblanc (the c is silent, apparently). Also, because of its
width, this pencil is more comfortable when writing compared to the Alpha Gel HD
Shaka Shaka thingy. It's also really cute; the white body series is definitely
one of my favorites.
This pencil is awesome....

This pencil is awesome. I got the .3 lead and thought that it would be bad, but
it's perfect! tThe grip is nice, it has the best clip in the whole A-gel series,
and amazing color. When I brought it to class, over the next 3 months, 9 other
kids bought it!!

You can get 0.3 lead here... ____
There's uni-ball AIN lead in Japantown (well... at least where I live there is)
available for all lead sizes (0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.7, 0.9, and some others). That's
not really an excuse because, like I said above, 0.3 lead is also available here
Anyways... back to reviewing! I got this one because the chance of the barrel
scratching is lower than that of the silver barrel of the same series (with
royal blue grip). My friend had that one and it scratched easily. This pencil is
great for my writing (which is small and slightly compact). This is good if you
have slim hands but it is also good for "fat" hands. The only problem is that
0.3 lead is fragile and can break easily ___
But that's not the pencil's fault now is it?
Good buy. A little high priced though.. __
This is AWESOME! Lead...

This is AWESOME! Lead is fairly easy to get. Although the grip is not as good as
the other unslim ones.

Uni-ball Alpha Gel Slim...
, October 15, 2009
Uni-ball Alpha Gel Slim Mechanical Pencil - 0.3 mm
- Gel provides comfort to those that write fast or for a very long period of
- Light-weight, perfect for those pencil spinners out there.
- Clip is the best out of all the Alpha Gel series.
- Smooth, brilliant design.
- Too small to write very accurate things in with a big hand.
- The cap can come off easily if used over and over again.
Overall, this is a pencil that is recommended for students who like light weight
pencils with great grip to write with.
