Best pencil model I've ever used. Good weight, and it's very well distributed. Excellent eraser and it lasts forever to boot. Comfortable, firm grip. It writes clearly and doesn't break the lead. Finally, it's super, super durable. I've been using this pencil model for about 8 years (all the way back to middle school) and have never used a better pencil. I bought more because I have lost mine, not because it died out on me. That seems nigh impossible in my mind.
