It has been already 3 days since I'm using this pencil, so far I like it.

I think this pencil may be a little uncomfortable to artists who like to grip the pencil too far from the tip, because of the large metal grip compared to the slim cable. In my case, I like to hold this pencil almost at the end of the metal grip, which still feels fine for me at least.

The length is about 145 mm (with extended guide pipe), has a good weight, but I wish I saved more 6 bucks and buy the Super Promecha 1500P, which is larger and heavier (to my personal taste).

But for this price, Promecha 1000P is a good drafting pencil.

I have owned an this product for about 5 months and can confirm all of bowen.pi's concerns with the product. I would also like to add that because of how it is designed, with the extendable sleeve, the lead tends to break regularly if the pen is dropped/put down too hard. I enjoyed this pencil, as it was my first venture into more serious drafting instruments, but unfortunately I wouldn't recommend it due to some design flaws.

I just got this today, but I don't think I'll use it very often. First of all, if the lead sleeve is fully extended, the pencil squeaks constantly. Second, it pushes out way too much lead. The first press gives enough to write with, but subsequent presses extend too much and the lead breaks.

Nice weight and balance. Nice how the metal sheath tip can be retracted. I might need a 0.5 ...and a 0.7!
