Cool pencil with some...

Cool pencil with some nice surprises.
The Shaker mechanism I was disappointed with, you really have to shake this
thing hard, I was hoping some light shakes by the paper would get me some lead,
so that you could virtually just keep writing, but you do really need to give it
a good shake (could be dangerous in the wrong hands :D or if there are other
people around you)
That being said, you can just use the lead advance which is ULTRA smooth, I mean
its like feather touch and youve got lead, I have not experienced a pencil that
was that easy to click, and the ergonomics of the clicker is a welcome change
from the standard lead advance.
Lock feature is nice and it has a hefty weight to it, my only complaint is that
the shaker feature is pretty useless (sorry, its just not practical) and the
looks are not the best for me. I prefer the Staetler 925-05 however I do like
the weight and fatter grip of this pencil more, I just keep going back to that
This however is a very nice pencil
