Nicely finished, minimal swirling in the sparkly blue plastic, and thicker around the middle than it seems in photos. It's fairly equivalent to the Pilot S3 in overall proportions, finish, and smoothness of operation, though more comfortable through the grip area. I appreciate the clean, slim spring clip, with no bulky tip to interfere with closing a hardbound sketchbook. It's a decent pencil, I'd say, but not quite as solid or precise as a Pentel P205 or a Zebra Drafix. The advance mechanism is a brass 3-jaw clutch, and the magazine tube is plastic. The lead grade indicator stays firmly in place, though the end cap seems ever so slightly too loose, much like the Pilot S3.

For the price, this is one comfortable writing machine. Just wish it sat lower in my shirt pocket, but pretty minor complaint for a great pencil. You won't regret getting one of these beauties.

This is the cheapest member of the pro-use line of mechanical pencils and the only one I have. The pencil is extremely attractive and pleasant to use- every part of the design from the tip end to end cap is nicely shaped and the dark blue colour is appealing. I dont see any reason to move up to a more expensive member of the line.

This was my first drafting pencil. It's very stylish and sexy. The weight is light and not too heavy, and it feels comfortable when you write. I really love this pen.
