Almost but something...
, June 3, 2014
Almost but something is missing. I love my Graphgear 1000 (other than the
incredible weight of it). I'm kinda mixed on the Graphgear 500 (like the idea,
but the grip/barrel junction leaves me felling like the pencil is unfinished)
and the Sharp series (P20x) is nice, but becoming dated. This pencil a nice
appearence, but the grip section is slippery (chromed metal that just doesn't
grab). Action is pure Pentel perfection. I don't like the fact that the
mechanics are sealed in the barrel, but apprciate the brass jaw. Nice lead
capacity (and 6 included leads). Typical Pentel eraser. Hardness indicator
that stays in place. I just can't put my finger on it, but something seems to
be missing with this pencil. Maybe its the fact that it seems lighter the the
GG500 but set me back a couple bucks more?, or maybe there really is nothing
wrong and this is a great simple mechanical pencil.
