          Comments about Pentel Side FX 0.5 Mechanical Pencil:

          Now that I can not find this product in the stores I have reverted to finding it on line. I absolutely love this product. I have long fingers and to find a pencil that will fit in my hand and not cramp it - well this product fits that bill. The placing where you advance the led is perfect and does not get in the way of the gripping. I will always hunt for a place to by this product AND this company is incredible to do just that. Happy customer!

          Best Mechanical Pencil I've Found

          from Portsmouth, NH

          About Me Quality Oriented

          Pros

            Comments about Pentel Side FX 0.5 Mechanical Pencil:

            When I can get away with it, I prefer to write with a pencil. Unfortunately, most mechanical pencils are either high-end, expensive affairs, or they're cheap and of very poor quality. The Pentel Side FX series (0.5mm and 0.7mm) are, however, notable exceptions to this rule. Since discovering them a few years ago, I have not found a better pencil at this or any other price point.

            It's clear that Pentel put a lot of thought and intelligent engineering into these pencils. From the very comfortable, over-sized rubber grip to the lead and eraser feed mechanisms, this pen is built for writing. Using the Side FX pencil, I am able to write for extended periods without developing the hand fatigue I experience with other writing instruments. I keep a supply at home and work, and panic slightly when I can't find one.

            I rarely take the time to write reviews for the products I buy, but this is one product that I'm so satisfied with that I had to let people know how good it is.

                This is absoultely the best mechancial pencil on the market. Perfect grip, smooth writing and with a replaceable dial-up eraser!!! The dial-up earser is what make this mp awesome! You don't have to replace the whole earser just because it's lower than the base of the pencil simply turn the dial and the earser adjusts! Perfect!

                Comments about Pentel Side FX 0.5 Mechanical Pencil:

                I've become addicted to these pencils. They hold a lot of lead, write smoothly, the eraser (which lasts forever) erases very well, and they have the perfect body thickness for long writing sessions, i.e., not so thin that your hand cramps, but not so thick that you feel like you're writing with one of those giant amusement park prize pencils.

                The only con is the "clip." It can feel uncomfortable if it's rubbing against your hand. I just break if off at the base, which fixes this thing's only "con."
