    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.

    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.

    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.

    I bought two Apple pencils, one as a spare. They're both a bit irregular, being the same my guess is it's likely the norm.

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