I found these on accident and now have a fleet of these pencils! They are the most convenient mechanical pencil I have yet to find! The button to advance the led is near right behind the place where your fingers will be so you don't have to re-position your hand in any way. It's right there so you just stop writing, leave your hand in the same position on the paper and just click, click, click and keep writing!
And don't get me started on the eraser! It's the best in the biz! It's not only replaceable, it's huge. It's probably about an inch long and you can extend/retract it by turning a little wheel around the base of the eraser. Not only that, it's a great eraser too. I've had some pencils with good erasers but they are tiny and worn to nothing in no time. Others are just no good at erasing. I mean come on - how old is this technology and some companies are still struggling with the eraser?
If you like mechanical pencils, this one is for you. I do...
My favorite mechanical pencil. I love that you press the side for led, nothing was more annoying than trying to erase with your mechanical pencil, accidently pressing too hard and having your led excel too far out of the tip. This stops it.
The twist up erasers last a while, and erase extremely well. The refills for the twist up erasers are kind of expensive if you prefer your eraser on your pencil. If you don't mind a block eraser I would suggest https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001Q4HQVU/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_9
I love these pencils, the are big enough for someone who has carpal tunnel, write smooth and look good too. Everyone always tries to steal my FX's, I had to give a teacher one in order to get mine back, I'm pretty particular and that pencil was broken in just right, that's why I gave the instructor a new one - break in your own pencil!! As long as they make these pencils, I will continue to pay for and use them.
