April 26, 2012

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.

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.

I love the superior design and quality of all the Platinum drafting pencils. They really did a good job on all of them. The only con I have is the fact that they are labled with the phrase, "Pro-Use," which I find kinda embrassing. However, unless someone is native speaker of English, it probably won't be noticable lol. And, indeed. Originally, these were not intended for sale in the United States.

Pretty much same as what other people say, but if you get this, do not disassemble to clean the tip unless you have a neat and clean workspace. I tried to unjam my pencil in class once, and a very tiny rubber piece randomly fell out and was lost in the carpet somewhere. My pencil has not worked since, because whenever I click to advance lead, sometimes as much as a centimeter comes out, or sometimes barely anything comes out. The rubber piece regulates the amount of lead dispensed, but if you take it apart, it'll most likely fall out if you aren't extremely careful. Then lead dispense will not be regulated, and the pencil will not be nearly as good as if it were new.
I would personally recommend the P205 if you are looking for a solid drafting pencil that is easy to maintain/unjam/clean. Besides, it's 20 cents cheaper
