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.

Never mind what I asaid earlier. After using this for a little, the stupid thing gets jammed. So, I waste seven pieces of lead trying to et the jammed piece of lead out but it is useless. I can't believe this got jammed in only one week.

I bought this same mechanical pencil about 6 years ago and I loved it!! I used it so much that it finally quit. This size of .3 is so very hard to find and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to find another one. Thank goodness Jet Pens still carries this size. I bought 2 so I could have a spare.

Great product!!

An beautiful work of art. Everybody is jealous of this pencil in my class. The pencil works very well and never breaks. However, the lead is a little hard to find, but that is not a big matter. It s appearance is superb to every other pencil that I have ever seen, exept maybe other pencils by Uni. The price is very good too. One thing that is bad about this pencil is that it's reall easy for it to get stolen since it's so cool. Overall, the Uni alpha gel slim is an amazing writing utensil and should be boughtt as a starter pencil for the whole Uni series.

This pencil is a beautiful work f art, obviously from uni. The sleek, white body makes it a true masterpiece. Every time I go to school with this pencil, everybody points at it and talks about how cool it is. The lead pencil itself is very high-quality, and t never malfunctions. The grip is squishy, although not as squishy as other Uni pencils, but it is good enough anyways. However, I found the 0.3 lead very breakable, and hard to find in stores, but this is not much of a major problem. Overall, The Uni alpha Gel Slim is a jaw dropping pencil, both in performance and appearance. It was very worth it to buy it, but remember to buy the rare 0.3 lead with it.

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. 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!!

@ Benvens1:

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 at Jetpens.

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 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 time.
- 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.
