the end is very slightly off center, anyone else notice this? It's only a few weeks old, I'm wondering if I bent it or maybe it came that way.

Picture?

It's hard to capture on photo. If I ran my fingers up and down where the tip meets the pencil I can feel that it's off center. Also can notice if I rotate it on something.

What about with comparison to a straightedge? That usually makes this sort of thing stand out. Have you tried removing the tip and putting it back on? If it's only a few weeks old and it bugs you enough (which I could definitely understand what with it being a writing utensil), I would go for a replacement.

Is it supposed to be perfectly straight?

That's a good question. I'm assuming the tip is supposed to have some give and play since its pressure sensitive and all.

I did try the tip and the replacement tip. I'll try the straightedge idea for a photo when I get home. It's not anything that will bug me long term, just odd.

Gonna resurrect this thread, does anyone have an Apple Pencil that is perfectly straight?

I just got mine as a gift and it’s ever so slightly off Center and gives the illusion it’s bent at the tip.

Both my previous and current apple pencils have this issue. I recently visited my Apple store to get a replacement, and it also has the same issue. Looking at the pencils in the store, every one seemed to have the same issue to a greater or lesser degree (even the second generation pencil!). So my current understanding is that no perfectly straight pencil exists.
