This pencil is very well balanced, and the body fits very well (and quite
naturally) into my hand. I made sure to wait a couple of months before writing
this review, and the pencil has stood up very well to every day use, with only a
few minor dings and scratches. Overall, I would highly recommend this as an
everyday use pencil that easily stands against a lot of use.
For my writing style the auto lead rotation is perfect. I took somewhat of a
gamble when I first chose to purchase this pencil, and I don't see how I could
be any happier with it. The metal grip gives the pencil an overall bottom heavy
feel that I find to be amazing when I write. This does not seem to be a pencil
for everyone, as a light handed writer would feel that the bottom heavy factor
throws off their style, but for a more heavy handed person, this pencil could
not be any better. I would happily recommend this pencil to anyone, though
proceed with slight caution and know your style of writing before purchasing any
pencil, that is simply a cardinal rule of writing.
The knurled grip on this pencil is simply amazing, could not imagine one better
to be used. The shifting mechanism is perfect, and I have found that it is
fairly solid in design when properly locked into place, leaving very little
"wiggle room," allowing for an even more solid overall feel for the pencil. One
of the best purchases I have ever made and I would highly recommend this to any
person looking for a pencil for drawing or general writing.
The grip on this pencil is absolutely fantastic, almost couldn't imagine using
anything after this. Would definitely buy plenty more of these and I have
quickly become a loyal user of the Alpha Gel line from Uni.
