This sleek, metal grip and resin upper body drafting pencil offers BOTH a shaker AND a click lead extension function! Just twist the ring above the grip to point to "lock" to use the pencil as a normal click advance drafting pencil. Unlock the body and it becomes a shaker pencil that you can shake to extend lead automatically! The lead advances through an internal weight mechanism that extends lead upon movement. Pencil features a fixed guide pipe length, clip and grip with rubber accents.

Consistently getting lead stuck in feeder tube. Need to constantly unscrew tip to clear out broken lead.

Not a good pencil. The grip is not good, and the rubber band around the grip falls off. The lock to allow the pencil to shake or lock often gets stuck. Overall a bad pencil.

top part is too heavy, it might be just my pencil, but the lock part doesn't shift easily...
a more recommended pencil would be the Ohto Promecha 500P Mechanical Pencil for Drawing - 0.3 mm it is half the price and lighter, and of better quality...

This is one of my best mechanical pencils. I love the way it writes; it always writes really smooth and very, very rarely does the point of the lead break. It is without a doubt one of the best of JetPens......

Great pencil. Positives...
Positives - Great style and color! The clip is sturdy, and the shake system is fun and effective, especially since its lockable (no accidents).
Negatives - The spring on the push-for-lead system "feels" cheap. Plastic case, lighter yes, but still feels cheap.
Personally I really don't like that its very top heavy, since it is really more of a hassle for pen-flicks, though for writing it happens to be pretty comfortable, so I am undecided on that. If you pen flick, GET THE GRAPHGEAR1000 for pentel!!!
Anyways, I really only have two MINOR complaints,which are totally outweighed by the positives! I really enjoy using it, and I have had no serious problems.
Conclusion: Great pencil worth the purchase, seriously consider it when getting a pencil!
