This pencil is quite comfortable to use, with a thickish barrel balanced just above the last molded ring groove, so neutral to slightly forward bias. The plastic barrel is thick and weighty, and all the moving parts fit snugly and with surprisingly little wiggle. The magazine tube appears to be color-coded plastic, in this case blue for 0.7mm. The clutch is brass, 3 jaws, with a heavy collar and the weighty nosepiece screws into an unusual tension/compression type situation, rather like the Pentel P200 range. Lead advance is heavily sprung, a longish-feeling action with a meaty click not unlike that of the mighty Rotring 600 (actual side by side comparison performed, it's more like the 600 than even the 500 managed to feel). Overall impression is of a sturdy, knockabout, everyday pencil that won't make you feel bad about leaving your fancier tools at home. Get some better leads for it, though. The stuff inside and in the refill tube is scratchy and inconsistent.

These two pencils are pretty good for their price point. The grip is a combination between slippery plastic and not very tactile rubber. If you have sweaty hands it may not be enjoyable but the grip is large which helps. The clip is not very removable which i personally do not like because i cannot rotate the lead.

Very good pencil. One downside is the small eraser and the fact that once you use up the extras from the starter set refills have not been made available.

This is an excellent and sturdy pencil. I'm not a fan of the looks, but the grip is a nice combination of two different rubber textures which guard against slipping. The the clip is all metal so I don't have to worry about breaking it off in stressful test situations.
The only downside other than my preference for appearance is that the tip is not retractable (not pocket safe). Otherwise, this is a very reliable pencil.
