This is the pencil I currently use for everything. I use it for notes in my
field notebook, I use it for field sketching and detailed drawing in my
hand-drawn maps, as well as every day office requirements. The auto-led
rotation feature keeps my writing uniform and crisp. I was hesitant to buy a
pencil without a soft grip, as I am so used to my gel grip on my Uni-Ball alpha
gel pencil, but the fine details of sketch/field mapping necessitated a thinner
barrel for me. I have no discomfort with this pencil, so the grip (though hard)
is well designed compared to similar pencils.
I love this pencil...it is the first thing I check in my field gear in the field
and I'm constantly making sure I have it as I would hate to lose it and be even
one moment without it!
I recommended buying extra erasers...I use them quite a bit as mapping requires
fine erasing, and they are handy to have.
