If you use mechanical pencils a lot of sketching this is the set to go for. Even though a little pricey, the graphgear is easily the best mechanical pencil I've ever used, I carry the 0.5mm with me everywhere, and I got a couple of comments from my peers at design school for both it's look and functionality.

The best pencil out there, period.

I used to mainly use a Pentel Graph 1000 for Pro mechanical pencil -which are amazing- but the Pentel Graphgear 1000 pencils are just impeccable.

The grip is more comfortable than the Pentel Graph 1000, I believe.
These pencils are excellent for precision.
I still like to use the Pentel Graph 1000 for Pro for larger and more brush-like strokes.

Definitely my favourite.

Originally started with one Pentel Graphgear 1000 0.4 model, and couldn't be happier with it. I just started to draw manga characters and wanted to have the finer lines in order to provide detail....hence the investment for the additional pencils. WOW!!! I love having this full range of pencils, and love how it is easy to draw with.

One thing, is don't tighten the barrels too much when you are indicating the type of lead in the pencil - it's really hard to unscrew. If you do run into this problem, try unscrewing the very tip of the pencil. That will loosen the barrel enough for you to change the setting.

I ordered this as part of a very large order so that I can draw manga. I live in NY and JetPens comes out of the West coast, but as usual, they are really prompt with their order. Because I couldn't wait to get my set.

Enjoy...and thanks JetPens!

I had purchased a single the Pentel Graphgear 1000 .4 drafting pencil. I loved it. It was a nice weight, and the barrel made it easy to hold for drawing. I started to draw manga and decided to invest in the set. Becareful when you turn the barrel to indicate the type of lead that is in the pen. The pen point also unscrews which allows you to easily change the designation of the lead type that is indicated on the barrel. If you just turn the barrel, it will eventually tighten to the point when you can't change this setting.

There has been no other problem, and I knock mine around alot and it still works great! I definitely would recommend this set.
