Verified Purchase
I have several Preppy pens, and give them out regularly to friends and siblings. They are a really good pen for the price. I have had several for almost a year now and have only ever had one crack. The crack is in the cap and it only happened because I dropped my seven pound laptop on the pen. This isn't a pen that can take a lot of abuse, but at this price that's not really expected. They are well worth the price.

As another review said, this pencil is awesome. I love that it locks and the tip retracts. It is also a well balanced pencil. Mine did jam and I thought it was broken for good. I took it apart and then put it back together and it's been working just fine since. There is definitely something to be said for being able to fix jams like that so simply. I would and do recommend this to anyone who likes shakers!

This pencil is amazing....
This pencil is amazing. The rotating engine really works as it says it does, but the thing that amazes me is all in the details. The metal barrel with the knurled grip is absolutely wonderful and really does mean it won't slip. It has a comfortable balance and weight to it, too. I like the feel of the brushed metal of the rest of the barrel and at the end of the barrel, there is a very thin band of rubber, so even if you like to hold pencils close to the tip there is a bit of something from stopping the slipping. The eraser cap also has this small band of rubber. This is a wonderful fact because it makes it all the more easier to get it off. One of the problems I have with pretty pencils and their eraser caps is that some of them are hard to grip. Not so with this one, all because of that little bit of rubber. This pencil is definitely worth the price.

This is my favorite eraser....
Verified Purchase
This is my favorite eraser. Yes, it does go fast, but it definitely is worth it. I like that all the little shavings stick together. I'm on my second one and bought one for my younger sister. One day, she came home from school with a big ball of all the eraser shavings she had from the entire day! It definitely works exactly as described.

Verified Purchase
This is my favorite color of the Signo inks. Yes, the ink does not last long, like with all other multi pen gel cartridges. But it did last longer than I expected. I have had this cartridge along with 4 others in my pen for three months, and writing color coded notes for the last 2 months, I just had to replace this cartridge last week. That seems like a pretty reasonable amount of time to me, but if it doesn't seem reasonable to you, then maybe ball point multi pens would be more your speed.

Verified Purchase
I love the Sarasa Push Clip series of pens, but I found this pen to be too scratchy for me. I usually write with .4 Hi-Tec-C and .38 refills for my Uniball Style Fit, I really prefer thin lines. I loved the bright green color of this pen, but I couldn't stand writing with the scratchy nib. I ended up giving this one to my friend and it's just perfect for her because the scratchiness doesn't bother her.

This is one of my favorite pens to keep with my planner in my purse. I love the grip and the size. It doesn't take up much room at all, but it's long enough that I can hold it comfortably even when I use it to write a full page. I just wish that the refills came in pink, too.

The ink in this pen is a bright yellow, slightly orange. I put switched the nib with my fine Preppy and the yellow was practically unreadable, but in the M nib it is very readable even on white paper. The nib writes smoothly. I've been using this pen for the past 2 weeks and it hasn't dried up.

I bought this pen about 3 weeks ago. I really like it, but I agree that the grip takes a little getting used to. I didn't like the ink the cartridge came with, but with some Noodler's it writes well. The nib isn't super smooth, but isn't scratchy at all. Definitely a good value for the money.
