These are great additions...

These are great additions to the multi-pen lineup, been using several for a
while with good results.
Some of the reviewers seem to have issues refilling the lead, using the
"Syringe-style" where you hold down the clicker and carefully load the lead
through the tip. This was how I nerve-wrackingly did it for over a year, until
just a few minutes ago, when I found out that you can gently pull the metal tube
of the barrel away from the the spring/tip component, and drop the leads right
in. I feel a bit the dunce, but better late than never, right?
Also, I use three of these in the same Style-fit 3-pen, to have regular, red,
and blue leads available, and it works wonderfully. Really nice to be able to
consolidate three pencils into one.

In response to the review...

In response to the review by war, I'm sorry if you (or any other readers) got
the impression that I do not own the product. I had purchased and used the
pencil before I made the review.
I meant that I would have preferred the product be refillable in the same manner
as most pre-loaded mechanical pencils are refilled, as in, not by pushing a
piece of lead through the writing tip with the clicker held down, but through
the non-writing end. The non-writing end of the pencil is actually closed off by
the attachment of a plastic piece which holds the pencil in place within the pen
I could understand why this pencil has such a limitation, since there is so
little room to spare inside the pen body as it is. I am otherwise delighted to
have this product available to me. I've been waiting for something like this for
a long time. If it makes everyone happy, I've given the product 4 stars this
war is correct; it is filled with 3 leads. The leads feel harder than HB, which
makes sense, since a softer lead with more graphite and less clay runs out more
quickly. It creates a lighter line, but the line does not smudge as easily.

Im using 3 of these in my 3 color pen. They all work perfectly despite one of
the previous reviews. The lead clicks out perfectly on each one. Ive also tested
5 of them on the 5 color pen with the same good result. It also fits in the
single color pen, which also works as advertised.

Thanks for the helpful...

Thanks for the helpful info, chris6283kim. I was afraid the pencil would have
been too fragile for me to attempt separating the spring component from the lead
sleeve, but it came apart without any problems. This pencil deserves 5 stars! If
you're on the fence about this purchase, jump off and buy it now.

So long as you are careful and patient, this pencil component is easily refilled
and reconfigured. Better yet, now there are style/fit bodies with erasers, so
you can advance the lead from any slot. Presumably this means you can now
install several in the same body. The only problem is a little noise while
writing, but that is the fault of the body, not this component.
