Nicely finished, minimal...
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.
