This pencil is slightly heavy but is fairly evenly weighted. Comfortable knurling (a bit less sharp as the Alvin Draft/Matics). The blue body is hexagonal and made of plastic and the lead reserve & advance are made of metals. Supplied eraser comes with a cleaning pin. 5.5 inches long (or 14.1 centimeters). Lead grade indicator is a bit stiff to turn but the selection firmly stays in place. FYI: Made in China.

I bought a set of these...
I bought a set of these 20+ years ago, they still look very nice, and they work well. The only ones I have left are three gray 0.7, a white 0.5, and a 0.5 in stealth black with red lettering. I'd love to get my mitts on a 0.3 and 0.9 again. There are certainly better pencils out today, nothing really special about these, just a solid pencil at a good price.

I'd say I expected more...

Here is what I didn't like:
-Looks much cheaper in real life than on the picture, especially knurling looks like there is no pattern and it's all shiny-blinky.
-Does not have a decent click
-Equal weight over the whole length. This means the top part is too heavy for my liking.

Especially when you can buy Pentel Graphgear 500 for almost twice as little.
Will highly recommend Graphgear 500 over this Rapidomatic.

I have this in 0.7mm...
I have this in 0.7mm and 0.9mm. This is about the same as Alvins, just that these dont have a round body, but is an octagon ( I think, not right next to me to count the sides, but you get the point). The 0.9mm spits out lead a little shorter than the Alvin 0.9mm, but overall, I would rate it with the Alvins. Very nice pencil, works very well. Only thing that would be a downside is the lead indicator. Some come more stiff than others, I got lucky and mines pretty stiff, but buying online thats the risk you take. Otherwise, definitely wont regret buying it.
