  NOT A BAD PENCIL BY ANY..., November 8, 2011
NOT A BAD PENCIL BY ANY MEANS... I HAVE HAD 2 OF THESE PENCILS.... PENCIL HAS SOME WEIGHT TO IT, CONTRARY TO OTHER REVIEWS... HEAVIER THAN PLASTIC... YOU DONT EVEN REALLY FEEL THE METAL GRIP BECAUSE OF THE RUBBER DOT TABS SURROUNDING IT... THE OUTSIDE CLIP IS LIGHTWEIGHT AND IS NOT VERY STRONG... I HAD TO BUY SECOND PENCIL AFTER THE OUTSIDE CLIP RIPPED OFF AFTER BEING CLIPPED TO MY POCKET... CLIP IS CHEAP ON THE 500 MODEL AS WELL...

I GUESS THE ONLY THING I LIKE IS THE WEIGHT AND THE METAL LOOK OF THE PENCIL...

THERE ARE BETTER OPTIONS.... STAEDTLER, ROTRING, PILOT...

  It's not a bad pencil...., December 9, 2010
By kis...
It's not a bad pencil. Not good either. Here's what I think:

Advantages:
- Has retractable tip
- Lead hardness and thickness indicator
- Good design

Disadvantages:
- Grip is slippery ( If you want to take a test using that pencil- DON'T risk your life- it will fall off your hands like soap). Grip literally SUCKS compared to Staetdler 925 25 05 silver series, Papermate pro touch II or Alvin Draftmatic.

- Eraser is horrible. Erases badly ones it gets dirty, it just spreads black lead all over the paper, making it dirtier.

- Pencil is balanced like wooden, i.e. center of mass is in the middle of the pencil. Personally i don't like it, because when you try to write/graph something with it, you can feel that pencil becomes heavy after like a minute.
- Too expensive for such an average pencil. Platinum Pro Use is much better than this pentel graphgear, yet it's half the price ($7.50).

Overall, I'm dissapointed with this pencil, but it's good when you keep it just for the sake of collection of mechanical pencils.

This is the best pencil I ever had had until my bratty lil niece threw it and broke the tip... I admit I almost had to kill her but i figured she could just pay me back so I am going to reorder :(
