The Rotring 600, although narrower and slightly less comfortable than the Staedtler 925-25, is my favorite due to its solid construction. The Rotring 600 can feel unbalanced if I grab it too close to the tip. Nevertheless, its absolute precision elegantly accompanies its distinctive, clinical appearance. If I could only choose one pencil, it would be this one.

This is pencil is BEAST. This silver finished Rotring is much smoother than it's matte black counterpart. The pencil is heavy yet balanced, and the grip gives maximum control (although it is a bit smaller than I can stand to use for more than a couple hours). Otherwise, this is a beautiful pencil that looks like a dentist tool.

As an avid drafting pencil enthusiast with a wide collection of pencils, I have to say this is one of my favorites. It has a very nice weight to it with good balance. Solid construction and the silver metal looks very sleek and clean cut. I would recommend this to anyone who appreciates quality stationary equipment.

A very good pencil, excellent build, nice design. However I still like my rapid pro a little better for both the weight and the grip.

I have both the black and silver versions of this pencil. I use them for drawing and writing. I like the weight of the pencil but many of the people who ask to see it find it too heavy. Even though it is heavy it is balanced and you get used to the weight. Although I love using the thin lead I find that it breaks often even when you don’t press too hard. I still use them but sometimes the lead doesn’t come out of the pencil no matter how many times I click the top. I haven’t dropped or handled roughly and I don’t know why this happens. These are my go to pencils I use them everyday and I love them. You can get such thin lines and not only do they work well they look good. The grip looks a bit like it won’t feel good but I’ve drawn for hours straight with out it slipping or hurting my fingers. Also jet pen as all the things you need to refill or fix it (if the tip breaks or you run out of lead or eraser) I've read in the comments that some people are worried about the thin tip and it doesn't retract like the later versions but if that were happen you can always replace it. It is a tad expensive but i've had mine for more than a year and they're hanging in. I do tend to use the silver body more that's why the review is on it.

Spectacular design but the metal knurling hurts my fingertips after extended (hours) writing. I've only used it for writing (no drafting) and the .3mm has been great for detailed equations and molecular diagrams.

Having a almost perfect RR500 in my arsenal, I wanted to check out how well the legendary RR600 fares.
They always say, 'Don't write your heroes, you will be disappointed'. This is NOT the case with the RR600. It's even better than I have ever dreamed. A very smooth silver finish. And holding it really is like holding a solid black of hexagonal metal. It is beautiful to behold and the minimalism of the design (the word 'Rotring' only appearing on the removable clip) really does appeal to me.
The writing experience is smooth, very smooth. There really are too much 'just rights' on this product that one cannot hate the RR600. It is indeed very precise and solidly built.
The knurled grip is just right. Not too smooth, not too rough. The only problem is that this HAS to stay home. I've heard too many stories about people who ruined their 600 by dropping it. But as long as one takes care of it, the quality of this gem will outlive me.
