I was skeptical of how well this pencil would work, but mine arrived yesterday
and I LOVE IT. Before I even wrote anything, I found that I really like the
grip. I hold my pencils pretty close to the point, so most pencils' rubber
grips are way too far from the tip and too fat to write comfortably. This
pencil's barrel is a good diameter, and it's grooved but smooth. The orange
ring near the point is soft rubber so your fingers don't slide off. This design
is perfect for me.

which isn't really an issue for me to begin with, but I like that every time I
touch the pencil to paper, it *feels* the same. With other pencils, depending
on whether you start writing on the "flat" part of your lead or the "sharp" part
of your lead, it feels different. But this pencil feels the same every time.
Also, the design is really attractive. Even though the body is plastic, it
looks expensive. The pencil feels really sturdy, and doesn't rattle or flex the
way some cheap pencils do.
