My hunt for a replacement...
March 24, 2013
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
-Grip is ineffective
I would not recommend this pencil, however the Pentel Graphgear 500 is less
expensive and a more impressive pencil.
