After using the Alpha gel tints for a while, my hands have been pretty
comfortable, but I still decided to buy the slim version because of how nice it
looked. The glossy purple, metal accents, and creamy grip convinced me. It's not
my favourite pencil, or even one I use pretty regularly. I guess I just don't
like how it feels when I write with it, even though the grip's not hard. It
works fine and everything, but I just never took a liking to it.
