The S Series (S3, S5, S10, S20) is a high-quality line of drafting pencils from Pilot. Features are “improved” on the pencil as one moves up the S series. The S5 series feature a rubber ribbed grip (longer than usual to accommodate different hands), fixed sleeve, lead grade indicator and clip. Plastic barrels are colored to match the lead size of the pencil. The drafting pencil has a great shape, low center of gravity and attractive form and is a nice option in between the S3 and S10 lines. It will fulfill all your professional drafting pencil needs at a very economical price.

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.
