Pros: Solidly constructed and good feel in the hand for this price range, retractable drafting sleeve, no wobble while erasing, G2 eraser fits this pencil
Cons: Tiny eraser, relatively unknown in US
Writing experience: Good
Price: Cheap (1.50 to 4.50 on Amazon, depending on the color)
This one kicks the Zebra M-301 off the honorable mentions and earns it’s place there. A pencil doesn’t have to be expensive to be great. This one deserves an honorable mention! If you can’t get the RexGrip, I’d recommend the very easy to obtain Pilot G2 mechanical pencil as a worthy doppleganger that is slightly lower quality and not as easy on the eyes.
