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.
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 =)
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
