Changes in the Old Classic
Pentel's Quicker Clicker has been my favorite mechanical pencil for going on three decades. As a professional, its convenient side advance means I don't have to stop writing if the lead breaks, or gets worn down. The .5mm lead allows me to write very small characters, sometimes necessary.
The biggest change is in the finger padding, which now has a chevron pattern instead of being solid. Once upon a time, there was no pad at all, creating a thinner pencil, which resulted in more control for my small hands. I'm a little wary of the patterned pad, since writing twelve to fourteen hours a day with the pencil might create a friction wound, but I'm going to give it a try.
