Hi,

After the mess with the Zebra Color Flight which was a low cost but quite poor quality pencil, I decided to review the Pilot Dr. Grip Putimo which is an excellent pencil that costs less and is my choice for a low cost pencil that is made very well. It's actually one of my favorite pencils to write with.

First, pictures

This is the pencil. The grip isn't yellow. It's just the poor lighting.

The loop comes off quite conveniently

Now for the review

This is one of my favorite cheaper Pilot pencils. The Pilot Super Grip, Ecomate S, Ecomate Supergrip, and Patint which all cost the same but are full sized use the same mechanism and are also highly recommended. They balance well. So, if you need a cheaper pencil that is excellently made, this is the one to get.

At last, someone who likes pencils like me! I had the pencil but never gave it the attention it deserves. Thanks for the review. Well done!
