I have a bunch of these...
October 15, 2011
I have a bunch of these 0.3mm models.
PRO: I find the ergonomics to be perfect. The little flare at the end of the grip makes it perfect to write without slipping my fingers toward the tip and loosing my grip. Yet it is smooth so it doesn't abrade my fingers like knurled drafting pencils, which I just don't get along with. The cap is easy to slide back on after erasing, while avoiding unintended advance of the lead, which plagues many pencils. Although, the lead tube is a bit wiggly inside, so erasing is a bit clumsier than better pencils.
CON: This is a cheap build-quality pencil. The higher end Pts are much superior. I had problems with mine breaking the 0.3mm leads frequently. I fixed this by reaming out the lead clutch with a very fine drill bit, of about 0.5mm size. That took the roughness off the inner edges of the clutch, and the pencils that have been treated this way are much much more reliable now.

If the internal build quality of a Pentel P203/5/7 could be combined with the smoother, gently flared tip of this pencil, then the perfect pencil would exist, and I'd buy 100 of them. Also, such a beast in 0.4mm would make me buy 200.

I gave it a two because I bought this pencil an from the start it just would not work. The lead would never come out and the pencil has absolutely no weight to it. I wouldn't suggest it.

A decent pencil but personally mine malfunctioned a few days after I got it. The pencil is also extremely light which makes drawing hard. Would not recommend but I could have just gotten a messed up one.

its a decent pencil. i preferred the black pro use with black grip to this one. it has the same enjoyable rolling feeling that the other has which comes from using 0.3 leads. i felt like i couldnt press down as hard with this one as i do with my black one.

Very light, economically made. It is comfortable in my hand and writes well. Nothing fancy about it but it functions as it is supposed to.
