Zebra Color Flight Mechanical Pencil Video Review

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMC2mgpPdMc

I compare the Zebra Color Flight to the Pentel P20X and the Pilot S3.  It falls short.

Pros:  Cheap, sturdy body and pocket clip

Cons: plastic piece connecting lead sleeve to body, eraser extends but not secure when erasing

Writing Experience: Good (ribbed body not any better than Pilot D3 or Pentel P20X)

Quality: OK (See Cons)

Features: OK+ (extendable eraser, but not any larger than P20X, and only slightly more convenient)

Price: Cheap (5 USD Amazon)

Top Ten?  Nope. Heck, Pilot S3 is better and doesn’t even make an Honorable Mention.

Honorable Mention?  If the Pilot S3 doesn’t make it, neither does this one.
