DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
The Uni-ball Shift Pipe Lock Mechanical Pencil is a visual masterpiece both in design and function. The pencil is targeted at heavy users such as students and designers. It has a unique shift and lock mechanism that allows you to protect the pencil tip during travels. The upper body shifts forward to create a body transformation as it protects the guide pipe and lead from breakage. The pencil also has a nice weight and features a low center of gravity to allow stable writing and reduce hand fatigue. The finely designed grip is etched with many grooves to offer a non-slip grip, and the guide pipe tip allows great visibility. The pencil is available in 0.3 to 0.9 mm sizes and is differentiated by color accents. The upper body is made of plastic while the grip and tip is made of metal. The 0.5 mm line has three extra body colors.

Solid pencil, however...
January 24, 2012
Solid pencil, however doesn't hold up very well aesthetically when used as your daily throw-in-backpack pencil. After using it heavily over a year, the paint on the upper part of the barrel (which is plastic), has worn off significantly, showing the milky white plastic underneath. This doesn't cause any usage issues, but it does make it look rather ugly. Another issue is that the locking mechanism becomes loose after heavy use, diminishing the pencils ability to lock in place. While this doesn't prevent me from using the pencil, it does cause minor issues such as dropping the pencil and having the tip retract because the locking mechanism can't hold up to minor concussions.

this works well. i like the sliding mechanism. small comment, but would be nice if the .7 was made in a different color. i realize they are color coded, but blue or something would be nice too.

Best mechanical pencil I have used to date. Even better than some of the very high priced ones I have used. Love the retractable tip! I will be getting the other sizes soon.
