This pencil is very solid....
This pencil is very solid. I like it's weight, which I would say is med-heavy, and balanced.
It is almost entirely aluminum and steel. The pencil lead reservoir tube inside is plastic...
It has a nice eraser which is capped off by a solid aluminum piece, as you can see in the nice picture.
The tip, which has a solid fixed 4mm sleeve, is also solid metal and screws onto solid brass threading
onto the main body inside the pencil. I'm picky about this issue... I do not like tips (which are almost
always metal) which screw onto plastic parts... And you often do not know this feature until you buy
it and unscrew the tip for yourself at home, to see what's inside. So here you go... in case you are
like me and care... this tip screws onto solid brass!
It's very precise, and it helps me "see" good lines when I'm drawing. It's inspiring to use.
Lacks a solid "click" sound when advancing lead, but I'm not thinking about that when I'm drawing and
seeing those nice lines as they draw themselves when the pencil's in my hand... =]
Also, I wanted the big version, but settled for this because it's fat older brother was sadly out of stock.
But I was not at all disappointed with this slim version.

Sleek Beauty!.....light weight, sleek, percision pencil. Just like its chunky brother, the Platinum Pro-Use II. Tight mechanics, no wobble, perfect lead advancement (small increments), firm clip, easy to read lead indicator. Good Eraser. The PERFECT drawing and sketching pencil.
This pencil will blow your mind...right up there with Rotring, if not better.

This is my new "go to" sketching pencil. I like the weight and the lead size.

A beautiful tool, absolutely...
A beautiful tool, absolutely amazing to use and so wonderfully smooth to hold after you remove the clip (be careful not to scratch the aluminum surface in the process). The only thing that makes me choose PG1000 over this one is that Pro-Use is so fine and wonderful that one is slightly too careful when handling it. PG1000 gives the impression that it can take anything, that´s why I´m more relaxed using it. But perhaps I only feel this way because I´ve dropped my Pro-Use to the floor and the sleeve got a bit bent (you hardly notice it,still working great)....That has not happened with my PG1000 YET. Pro-Use is a 5 star tool no doubt. Perfectly suited for detailed drafting. Not necessarily the best one for writing.
