Pen mechanism works perfectly - you can see the logo rotating. It's a great
conversation piece at the office. Not the prettiest pencil; looks like something
you'd get at an office supply store. There is a little "give" in the mechanism
which means you can't drag your pencil when you write. You have to lift it up.
Play is probably only a few 10ths of a mm. I like that feel personally, almost
like a shock absorber.
This is an impressive pencil. A very striking look - I just love the gloss white
and chrome. Very sci-fi looking. It feels good in the hand after a small period
of getting used to the o-ring grips. The shaker lead advance is pretty cool too.
The manual lead advance is very silky.
A well executed pencil. Just the right amount of grip. Smartly styled right down
to the wrap around pocket clip. And unlike so many mech pencils it's solid -
doesn't feel like internal parts are rattling around when you write. One of my
every day pencils!
