Never worry about lead breaking again! The DelGuard pencil uses an innovative mechanism developed by Zebra that prevents lead breakage. The secret is in the moving parts inside the pencil tip and grip area. How exactly does it work? If you apply vertical pressure to the lead as you write, a spring inside the pencil absorbs the pressure and allows the lead to retract a little so that it's protected by the guide pipe. If you apply diagonal pressure, the guide pipe and tip which guard the lead extend further out, thus protecting more of the lead. Even if you write with a heavy hand, your lead will survive. Lead clogging is also prevented, because the internal parts guard the lead. Even those small bits won't get misaligned and clog the pencil! However, if you extend the lead by clicking four times or more, the lead may break while writing. The pencil writes smoothly, and your thoughts won't be interrupted by the annoyance of lead breaking. Your concentration will see great improvement!

This is the White pencil. Close-up photos showing the tip mechanism feature the Blue pencil.

An excellent pencil!
The mechanism works as advertised, yet doesn't feel weird.
The taper and short pipe let you write with a heavy, closed hand with your fingers very close to the business end of the pencil for fine control.
The best performance!! (As Zebra says in their little video!)

I thought I wouldn't use this pencil as much, but I LOVE IT. Its my favorite even if it has no grip, its super roomy and lead barely every breaks. I also love how hard it is to push on the button, it makes it better so you're not just wasting lead! Ordering a back up just in case!

Does an incredible job of protecting the lead. Feel free to write as hard and as dark as you want; this thing can take it. It also is better than most "guarding" pencils, because not only does it have a basic vertical spring for vertical pressure, but it also has a contraption that extends the tip on horizontal pressure. Perfect pencil. Just make a version for 0.3!

Not really sure how it manages to keep feeding out lead, but it does allow for more writing and less lead breakage than a typical mechanical pencil.
