I ordered this pencil...
, March 10, 2013
I ordered this pencil a while back, and it's great. The weight distribution of
it is very centered, so you're hand doesn't get tired even after long bouts of
writing. Sometimes the clip mechanism scares me, but it turns out it's very
sturdy, and isn't going anywhere. The retractable tip is by far the best
feature, as it makes it easy to carry around in your pocket, without worrying
about damaging the tip of the pencil. It can hold about ten pieces of lead in
the barrel with ease so you don't need to worry about running out of lead or
carrying around refills. The indicator meter is not a separate mechanism, it is
part of the front mechanism, so changing it is actually a little bit difficult.
The eraser works well but gets dirty. I'd suggest just using a block eraser. The
grip is good, and doesn't slip, but it is not as nice as a classic gnarled grip.
I highly suggest this pencil, it's a great addition to any student or
