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.
