I bought one of these last year and just lost it yesterday. I reordered two the same day because I can't go back to writing with any old pencil - mechanical or otherwise. It writes so smoothly with the Pentel leads and fits comfortably with my narrow fingers. Only downside is it's a little overpriced.

Uni-ball Alpha Gel Slim...
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.

this pencil is almost perfect, waah. the grip is lovely and squishy and perfect for my smaller hands! The grip extends longer than other alpha gels, so you can put your hand lower for more control. Arguably my favorite pencil, except it's a bit overpriced. Also, since I used it so much, there is a small tear in the grip. ;A; but definitely amazing! good job uni~~

The Uni-ball Alph Gel Slim has quickly become my favorite of all the lead pencils I own. It has reduced hand fatigue even after drawing for several hours. The squishy portion feels awesome I was actually quite amazed when I first received it. Before that the Zebra Airfit LT Slim Mechanical Pencil was my go to pencil, but like I said the comfy grip exceeded my expectations and I haven't been able to pick up other pencils as frequently as I do this one. It was worth every cent paid. I'm planning on buying the other colors in this line just in case they decide to discontinue it.

This is such a wonderful pencil. It is so light that you will forget you are even writing with it! Also, the grip is much closer to the led sleve which makes for better control when you write. Don't heasitate to buy!
