Heres my review on this pencil.
Length - Decent, not real long, not real short, it works.
Pipe Length - About standard, not enough to make a difference on how I hold it
Tip - Works well enough, no gripes.
Grip - Has one.
Body - More of a solid piece, dont really have to worry about it unscrewing at
the tip, works well.
Clip - Standard, works well enough.
Cap - One mine, they've never slipped off, so thats a HUGE plus in my book.
Eraser - Has one, but I really dont use it. Some have the needle for clearing,
never needed it personally.
Finish - Kinda shiny, doesnt show scratches really, the shiny metal makes it
more appealing to the eye. The different body colors makes it easy to see what
lead size the pencil is.
Weight - On the lighter side, not a problem in my book, weight isnt really ever
an issue with me in pencils.
Lettering - Pretty decent, they placed it a good spot where it really wont get
rubbed off from using it consonantly.
Tip - Has unscrewed before while writing, nothing major, and again, this is the
pencil I've used the most in my writing.
Lead Indicator - Doesnt have one, I just write whatever lead softness I'm using
and tape it on the body below the cap.
Grip - Biggest problem, not that its a huge problem, but it tends to get
slippery when writing for hours. Wish the grip groves were more pronounced.
I love this pencil, I've gotten more used to other drafting pencils with better
grips and other features, but I wouldnt feel right not having one of these. For
the price, definitely worth having. I own the 0.5mm, 0.7mm and the 0.9mm. I used
to the 0.5mm growing up, but for the past 4 yrs, I've really liked using the
thicker lead, when having to jot something down really fast, I dont have worry
about the lead breaking, Plus, the softer the lead, the thicker the lines (and
darker). So you could use a harder lead which would give you a thinner line (due
to it not wearing down as fast) with the strength of a thicker lead.
Thick lead, but expected....

Thick lead, but expected. great for writing notes, that's why i have 0.7 and 0.5
for the fine work. p207 and p205.
P209 is great to add to my collection for a little diversity. more of a mustard
yellow color if anyone is wondering.
