I've typed a review about this pencil before, but I've changed my mind. I
recently bought the Pentel Graph 1000 for Pro (0.5) and I can consider this
pencil as a nice drawing/drafting pencil and also a writing utensil. The Pentel
Graph 1000 for Pro did not have a good of a grip as the Pilot S5. Even though
the Pentel was metal, looks a little bit better, and also has a better lead
indicator, the Pilot S5 is better because of the grip and the writing. The
Pentel's 1000 wrote darker and holds the lead strongly for drafting and the lead
indicator is better because unlike the Pilot S5, the lead indicator is not
loose. I like the S5 because it's comfortable and it's great for writing and
drawing. Also the S5 feels very ergonomic because of the middle of the pencil
which gets bigger too smaller. When writing/drawing with the Pilot S5, I can
feel how strong the lead is held in the mechanism and it still writes smoothly.

Definitely a drafting pencil. You can tell it holds the lead very well so it
doesn't break. You have to get used to holding the pencil a little higher
because at the end of the grip the metal flares around and it will bother you
when writing or drawing. When writing it writes very smooth and darker than 0.5
and it gives the perfect amount of lead depending on if you click the pen a
little bit or a a lot, you get to choose how much lead you want. The lead
indicator is not that great, hard to use or mine is just busted, but I have no
use for any other kind of lead but HB. Pencil fits in your hand and looks and
feels nice when you're writing/drafting. More of a drafting because the lines
are thick. This pencil is not the best. It's ok.

This pencil is not the best and is a little expensive. The body is plastic and
there is no grip at all. However, it does work well and is cool to carry around.
