For those who like the Alpha Gel but prefer a thinner body, this Alpha Gel Slim mechanical pencil is for you! Often times the standard Alpha Gel pen and pencil line, though very ergonomic, won't fit in smaller accessories such as planners. This Slim line gives you the same squishy grip you have grown to love but in a more slender size for easy portability. All those other "comfy" grips seem like hard rubber compared to this one. Squeeze it and it'll bring an instant "Oooooooo" to your lips. It's the same gel that's famous for keeping an egg from breaking even when dropped from a 5ft height!
