A great buy for the price! (For $3, I wasn't expecting an extra squishy grip or anything.) Aside from being shaky and awesome, I really love the COLOR of it! It's pretty flourescent irl! (Atleast to me, anyway) :D

I bought this pencil primarily because it was a cute pink and looked exceptionally squishy. I was not at all disappointed -- indeed, I would agree that this is the squishiest of all the alpha grips.

Great feature: Just below the squishy grip is another tiny ring. This is great if you're like me and tend to grip the pencil near the point and press really hard while writing.

Be careful: The aluminim barrel scratches easily. I keep it in a plastic box-like case with Dr. Grip pencils, which are plastic, and this seems to be fine. I wouldn't reccomend putting it in a soft pencil case with other pencils and/or sharp objects.

Definitely one of my favorites! :)

This is definitely a good buy! The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it isn't the bright green color I thought it was from looking at the picture.

This is a really pretty pencil ^^ I like how it has a clip! It's a great value too! I don't like the grip too much because it's not as soft as the ones on the other pencils I have, but it's still awesome =)

The 0.3mm writes really really thin! Thinner than any other pencil I've ever had! It's awesome! ^^

This pencil is awesome! It produces a line much thinner than regular 0.5mm mechanical pencils are able to. My letters are consisent - the width of all the strokes are the same. The point goes in slightly when you press down (this is what causes the lead to turn), but it is hardly noticable. It is lightweight, and comfortable to hold ^^

I love the original Alpha Gel grip - its sooo soft and comfortable ^^ I like how this pencil has a ring of rubber below the grip as well. I tend to hold pens and pencils pretty far down, so this helps me to write without my fingers slipping down. I find this to be especially useful when I am writing on a soft surface that would otherwise cause a pencil to produce a light line (like a notebook). With the extra grip I can press down pretty hard.

The only thing is that the aluminum barrel tends to get scratched very easily - I have to keep it separate from all other school supplies so that it doesn't get damaged.
