Pilot Timeline Present Ballpoint Pen - 0.7 mm - Snow White Body - PILOT BTL-3SR-SW
  When I saw this pen on..., August 10, 2011
When I saw this pen on Jetpens, I knew I had to have it. The pen writes very smoothly and is extremely elegant in design. My only problem with this pen is that I think it looks too good to use sometimes and I prefer have it just for show. The design of the pen is extremely modern, and will match any person's office that is designed to be modern. If you do want to use this for everyday writing, the only thing I ran into was that my hands started to sweat and since the body is a smooth plastic, it becomes slippery. The body of the pen does have a natural curve to it, making it easy to hold. The case that comes with the pen is nice as well.
Pilot Dr. Grip 4+1 4 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencil - Black Body - PILOT PBKHDF1SF-B
  I bought this multi-pen..., August 10, 2011
I bought this multi-pen over at a Kinokuniya bookstore in NYC. From the moment I saw it, I knew it would have its usefulness for studying, as it has all of the basic ballpoint pen colors, PLUS, a PENCIL! When I'm studying or taking notes, I prefer to write with pencil for most things and write in pen for important things such as theorems or formulas. This is really great for a college student because instead of wasting precious lecture time by switching pens, you can do it on the fly. My only complaint about this multi-pen is that the grip isn't that great, and with the Dr. Grip series, you kind of expect that. However, the pen is already thick, so placing a nicer grip probably would have made it even thicker. As far as construction goes, this is a pretty sturdy pen, and doesn't creak even though it is made completely out of plastic.
Uni Jetstream Ballpoint Pen - 0.7 mm - Alpha Gel Grip Series - Silver Body - UNI SXN1000071P26

Gel pens are great to write with because of their smoothness but, as a left handed writer, I cannot use most gel pens because they smear all over. However, I no longer envy right handed writers because of this pen. The Jetstream line has a remarkable ink flow that makes writing extremely smooth. In fact, this pen writes smoother than most gel pens! And did I mention that this is a ballpoint pen! I highly recommend this pen to all writers and especially to lefties. In addition, the grip is as you would expect from the alpha gel line-soft, cushy and heavenly. While the price of this pen is quite high, you get two great things in one pen-a terrific grip, and a unrivaled ink flow. In addition, the metal body of this pen makes it durable, so when the ink runs out, you can just buy a refill and use it for years.

Uni Alpha Gel Shaka Shaker Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - White Grip - UNI M5617GG1P.1
  When I bought this pencil..., May 17, 2010
When I bought this pencil a couple of years ago, I was not surprised at all by its comfortable grip. I had already experienced the old, fat version of the alpha gel. However, what really sets this pencil apart from the original is its thin body and shaker ability. The shaker ability allows you to advance the lead without changing hand positions. Its also fun to play with when you are bored. Another neat thing about this pencil is the lead retracting mechanism. By clicking the top down like you would with a pen, you can easily retract the lead. Great pencil overall and in my opinion, the best of the alpha gel line.
Pentel ERGoNoMiX WingGrip Mechanical Pencil - Limited Edition Brass Clip - 0.5 mm - Clear Black Body - PENTEL XPR805TA

I was very excited when I ordered this pencil. First off, it looked pretty neat and I thought it might really revolutionize the way I write. However, when I got the pencil, I realized that the "wing" didn't really help me at all. I'm not sure if I am using it correctly, but, according to the diagrams, I am. The thing that really sucks about this pencil is the fact that its not even comfortable if you use it like a normal pencil. That and its relatively high price point make it a poor choice.
Pilot 2020 Shaker Super Grip Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Neon Color - Blue - PILOT HFGP-20R-TL5
  I first used this pencil..., May 17, 2010
I first used this pencil a couple of years ago when my uncle gave me one from Japan. I liked the pencil instantly and was afraid to use it at school because I was scared of losing it. I think this pencil is best suited for people who like thin mechanical pencils and do not need a cushy grip. While the grip is not the best ever made, it is comfortable enough and can be used for extensive periods of time. I personally like the spring near the eraser of the pencil because it feels like it gives a powerful push to the lead every single time its pushed down on. And this was before I found out what the spring in the middle of the pencil was for! The shaking ability made possible by that middle spring comes in handy especially when you're busy jotting down thoughts and are too busy to reposition your hand to advance the lead.
Ohto Tasche Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Silver Body - OHTO SP-10T SILVER
  Like other consumers,..., May 17, 2010
Like other consumers, I bought this pencil (and its pen counterpart) for its looks. When I received the pencil, I was amazed at its looks and craftsmanship. The thing I really like about this pencil is the fact that it is very compact. The compactness of this pencil allows it to be put into any pocket without being too noticeable. Even though it is small when the cap is closed, it becomes much longer when you take the cap off and put it on the back. The cool thing about doing this is that the rubber O-ring on the back prevents the cap from moving. My only complaint about the pencil is the feeling I get when I "click" the pencil. In addition, I think this pencil is suitable only for short notes and letters. I don't think I could use it to write an essay or do calculus homework. Probably best suited for businessmen.

This pencil is unbelievably incredible! As a very picky pencil user, I have absolutely no major complaints about this pencil. Here are the things I love about this pencil: the grip, shaker ability, aesthetics, and weight. In my opinion, very few mechanical pencils have grips that are smooth and at the same time have traction. This one does. The weight and feel of this pencil is also terrific, as the pencil fits naturally into my hand and just feels right when writing. I am also a fan of the alpha-gel by uni-ball, and I must say that this is a strong rival to that pencil line.

This is my favorite mechanical pencil of all time! My uncle in Japan sent me one 6 years ago and I liked it so much that I was afraid to use it. I thought that I might misplace it. I then found a blue one on Jetpens.com and I was so excited that I bought one. However, I wanted another orange one and while I was in a bookstore in New York I found one. Then Jetpens started carrying all of the neon color Super Grip 2020s and now I do not have to go to New York to buy one!
