It's an extremely good...

It's an extremely good concept, but Pentel needed to think this over...
what needs to be fixed-
_the "wing grip" needs to stay in place, like using a screw. the wing mech in
this pencil doesn't hold up to much pressure.
_the "wing grip" needs to be a soft grip, and the whole mech needs to be more
flexible- like having a spring or something
_the gripped barrel needs to be smaller, the tip/body needs to be weighted... I
thought the shaft was metal, but it isn't obviously.
This pencil has so much potential, but it kinda fails. =/
I'd suggest you buy it and play around with it. The pencil removes fatigue, and
it actually makes writing "easier." It can fit to any hand actually with the
wing grip, but the grip itself doesn't flex or hold well. If it were more
flexible, instead of "tying down" your hand/movement, then the pencil would be
easier to use. Frankly, because it's hard to hold, hand writing/drawing suffer a
lot because you need "extra" coordination to control the pencil.
Despite my pessimistic view of this pencil, it's still something to enjoy (hence
