Review and Giveaway on Zebra Airfit Mechanical Pencil or What would Mr. Darcy do?
Remember Zebra Airfit Jell I mentioned awhile back? The pen is impressive insofar as I decide to pick up its counterpart, a mechanical pencil. The anatomy of the pencil is identical to the pen: fully functional clip, supportive yet squishy cushion, and brightly colored body. This particular one that I pick up is in pearly orange which gives a refreshing appeal that reminds me of an orange flavored popsicle.
Zebra Airfit Mechanical Pencil looks just like its gel pen cousin.
Full-size clip with eraser on top
Air filled cushion that makes writing less tiresome and more comfortable.
Though it is a full-size mechanical pencil, Airfit is relatively light which would alleviate the fatigue that developed in long span of writing. The barrel section is opaque, so you can easily see the spring action that pushes lead forward. The pencil is preloaded with 3 pieces of lead, presumably #2 (HB). It writes very smoothly that initially, I lost traction while writing because it glides across the paper. Though it does not have the self-rotating mechanism like Kuru Toga, while writing on the chisel side of the lead, I experienced no breakage.
Overall, I enjoy the writing experience of Airfit, and it is ideal for students who use pencil extensively. A small drawback of this pencil is the size of the eraser, which is quite standard for mechanical pencils in general. I personally avoid using the eraser at the end out of the fear that I would lose the cover.
The pencil seems to say, “Summer is here!”
