Now to those that are...

Now to those that are looking for a good writing pencil. This is a drafting pencil it’s not designed to be held near the tip for writing. Drafting pencils are designed to be held a little further up so that when you are running along a straight edge or a template the lead is very close to the edge of it. If you are a person that holds a pencil close to the tip you will NOT like drafting pencils. If you are a person that holds your pencil a little further up the pencil this pencil has a great feel and weight to it.

First let me start off that I’m a Drafter (Board and CAD). Just like any other Artist we have our preferences of pens and pencils, myself I prefer the graphgear 500 the weight being focused near the tip allows me to keep a lighter touch even with the .3mm. Recently my faithful .3mm graphgear 500 (of 7 years) broke, the only place I have found it is here on JetPens. I ended up buying 3 500’s and 2 1000. I still like the 500 over the 1000 for drafting. However, to my surprise I find myself using the 1000 for calculations and writing over the 500, the retractable tip helps to guard it from bending, and “poking” my when I stick it in my pocket, plus the feel is very nice much like a nice pen. I do use different types of lead HB, 2B, and 2H the lead indicator is much nicer then the colored tape tied around the eraser cover. The lead size markings(are color coordinated too) on the eraser cover is very nice considering that all the different sizes are the same color barrel only the “rubber” is colored and is covered when in a pen holder. The clip is heavy duty and doesn’t feel like it’s going to break when you pull on it.

I chose the 0.3 mm Pentel...
June 5, 2013
I chose the 0.3 mm Pentel Graphgear 1000 based on its appearances. Knowing that during this semester's Architectural Drafting class we would would be required to complete a full set of ten drawings consisting of floor plans and elevation renderings. The "1000" from the surface had the look of a well constructed mechanical pencil. Much nicer the $7.00 - $9.00 pencils the other students purchased. At the outset the pencil performed excellent, producing the nice light lines needed for initial layout.
As it happened the Pentel eventually jammed to the point that I had to take the pencil apart. I was able to get the pencil working again but had to remove a small grommet which I believe was used to help feed the lead through the barrel, due to the fact that it would not fit back in place and was causing a blockage to the advancing lead. While examining the "Graphgear I also noticed that the barrel portion of the pencil that screws into the upper portion was made of plastic which would later prove to be the final and most obvious flaw.
The next problem arose when trying to engage a new lead, this often prompted another jam due to more than one lead trying to make its way through the feed mechanism.
Finally, on the second to last drawing the pencil fell from about 3 1/2 feet and snapped in two right at the top of the plastic threaded barrel intersection. It was irreparable at this point and I chose to complete my remaining drawings with my trusted 0.5 mm "Helix".

I love this sturdy, heavy drafting pencil! I love the well designed, large grip area. I love that my finger tips don't end up too close to the lead — it feels comfortable and secure plus I can see what I'm doing. The clip is probably overkill but it serves an important function: it keeps the pencil from rolling off the end of my board. I think this pencil is well worth the money.

Stopped functioning soon after I got it. Every now and then I pull it out and think maybe this time I can get it working again. I never can.

I hear complaints here and there about its unreliability. Maybe it's only this particular size. But I feel I need to warn people away from it, especially consider its cost.
