More and mechanical pencils now have their own way of protecting the lead from breaking, which is a common issue with conventional mechanical pencils. The Uni-ball Alpha Gel Kuru Toga Mechanical Pencil also developed their own mechanism to resolve this issue. One another common issues with conventional mechanical pencil is that the leads always wear down on one side which results in a wedged tip. However, when the users change their writing position when turning the page for example, they will most probably use a different lead surface. This will sometimes cause dramatic variations in line width. The Uni-ball Alpha Gel Kuru Toga Mechanical Pencil resolve this issue by introducing a rotation mechanism which continuously rotates the lead as you write. The spring-empowered clutch rotates the lead very time you left the pencil from the surface, hence madding the lead worn off much more evenly resulting in a more even line width.
