After reading reviews...

After reading reviews about this pencil I figured I'd see what the fuss is
about. I'm not normally a pencil user, but I have to so I love this pencil. The
mechanism works exactly the way it's advertised and my lines are even. I never
found the mechanism to be hindering at all because it does not take much
pressure to activate the mechanism. So it's not like you have to constantly
press down on the pencil to start the mechanism. In terms of having to write at
an angle; the pen was designed for people who write at less than 90 degrees. The
mechanism wouldn't be necessary for people who write at 90 degrees. Also I think
the thickness of the line is mostly dependent on the hardness of the lead used
not so much the physical thickness of the lead (which is why I don't use pencils
all that often).
If there's one thing I wish I could modify on this pencil it would be so that
the tip retracts. I worry that it's either going to break off or stab me in the
leg when i sit down. But I really love this pencil and it'll be regularly used
along side my Graphgear.
