I previously reviewed this pencil as having a modified rubber grip/sleeve. Upon further inspection I found that there was little if any difference between the Graph 1000 I bought previously and therefore retract that somewhat negative review.

I just received two of these pencils from JetPens. It turns out they are essentially the same model as before, but instead of having rubber grips inlaid into the hard plastic barrel, they have an entire rubber sleeve with raised ridges simulating the original grip pattern. This probably doesn't change the operating characteristics of the pencil, but for me, this simpler design used in many cheaper mechanical pencils means that the Pentel Graph 1000 for Pro looses a considerable amount of its cachet.

I use the 0.9mm size of the 1000 because I don't use it for technical/drafting work; the lead diameter is still rather thin for me, preferring what was the standard 1.1mm lead size of propelling pencils of yesteryear. I don't believe the entire pencil is brass though. The tip can be unscrewed and a brief look inside confirms that at least this part is brass. The pencil as a whole is too light, being hardly more heavy than a wooden pencil. If you want heft, I would suggest the Pentel GraphGear 1000, although the cheaper GraphGear 500 has better balance, rather like a dart (from the game of darts), with the weight mainly in the business end and a less fussy, non-retractable tip. I do have to admit though that the 1000 for Pro (Japanglish at it's best) is a very sleek pencil - something you'd expect to be used in a futuristic movie - before the digital age that is.

I found this pencil somewhere and I fell in love with it. I put a foam grip over the rubber pieces and put a pirate duck pencil topper on it. I love that pencil, it has the perfect heaviness. I just wish I could get F grade 0.9mm leads. Grumble grumble.
