Bought this pencil a couple of months ago. I was interested in it because of the
adjustable feed and guide-tube and the hefty looking knurled grip. What I
discovered after using it for a while is that it is rather poorly built. There
is a significant lack of material holding the grip end of the pencil to the back
end. I put the pencil in my pocket and sat down to later discover that it had
bent. It bent back easily enough though. The guide-tube also became bent after a
fall from my desk. And finally, in order to use the eraser, you must remove the
eraser cap and replace it. This is not ever an issue with other pencils, but
with the Super Promecha, replacing the eraser cap often results in inadvertently
advancing the lead.
Very cool looking, but not a very good pencil.
