Verified Purchase
wow! I really like this one alot, and it doesn't seem to "go bad" easily. It's also very light, and has a good grip. It's very nice for people who write alot, although a .4 lead pencil will give you thinner lines...

My hunt for a replacement...
Verified Purchase
My hunt for a replacement to the Pentel P205 led me to the Pentel Graphlet. I purchased one, and received the package super-quick, typical Jetpens!
The Graphletis a very good pencil for its intended purpose: drafting. However, for writing the grip is far too slippery. If Pentel had put a proper knurling on this pencil (like they did on the Graphgear 500) it would have been the best pencil for the price on Jetpens. Alas, they did not.

-Very precise feel
-Solid lead "clicks"
-strong plastic body (same as the less expensive Graphgear 500)
-Eraser cap stays in place
-Clip is removable (I always take the clips off)
-The view of the lead is okay, but not amazing. I find that the chrome section will sometimes reflect light and cause annoying "dancing" of lit around the paper

-Grip is ineffective

I would not recommend this pencil, however the Pentel Graphgear 500 is less expensive and a more impressive pencil.

Great little drafting...
Verified Purchase
Great little drafting pencil. All plastic, lightweight. Fixed sleeve, so it's a desk pencil, not a shirt pocket carry pencil. But that's OK, I have others for that. What I really like are the little extra touches: a wire stuck in the bottom of the eraser that can be used to clean out broken lead jammed in the sleeve, and a lead type indicator that you can set to show what lead is in the pencil.

I still have one of the original Graph 500 (PG505) from the late 80's and it's still going strong. The best drawing instrument you can get in my book!

I bought the entire set except for the .4mm, (sold out for now ). Theses are great or my drawings and also for taking notes at work . The feel and weight are perfect , have always liked the heavier weight . Thanks JetPens for the super fast delivery, it doesn't hurt that I live in the Bay Area lol . I highly recommend these pencils , Pentel has always been my favorite.
