Good product but 0.3mm is too thin,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pentel A3 120DX 0.3mm Mechanical Auto Pencil A300 (Office Product)
The pencil itself has an amazing build quality as you would expect with Pentel products, however I found that 0.3mm lead snaps way too easily and it has quite a long and fine point on the end on the pencil which isn't so good for pockets. Impressed with the product but 0.3mm is just too sharp and makes notes illegible. I choose 0.3mm upon purchasing because I wanted a sharp pencil compared to conventional ones, but it proved to be too sharp for me. Went for a 0.7mm Faber-Castell instead which gave still relatively sharp but thicker lines with lead that doesn't break, so unless you really need a pencil for fine detail, I'd recommend you to go for thicker lead. I must stress the product itself is good, only let down by the lead thickness.
