I just obtained the legendary Dixon's Oriole pencil, and this is my review (after the 3 pics) Strengths
: Dixon's Oriole (hereinafter [O]) is much sturdier on the hands than the Ticonderoga. When I write, the [O] is very direct: it writes whatever you want with arrant precision. This pencil is perfect for diagramming conditionals and for utilizing in logic games. Some flaws
: The [O] is slower to write with than the Ticonderoga. Moreover, it is slower to bubble the answers. The attached eraser is not as good as the Ticonderoga's (although it is still pretty good). Ties
: both pencils take the same amount of time to sharpen. Once sharpened, both pencils boast an exquisite point, that, when applied to paper, composes formidable marks to combat the LSAT.Conclusion
: the [O] is perfect for LG and for some parts of LR. I would, however, not use it for RC.
I also obtained the HI-Polymer eraser:
This eraser is one of the best I've used in my entire life. This eraser, equipped with either a Ticonderoga or an Oriole (or both), will aid whatever combatant for GAME DAY.
