The Rotring 800+ Mechanical Pencil + Stylus Hybrid conveniently combines a mechanical pencil and stylus at the same end! With its unique retractable mechanism, switch seamlessly between the two by simply twisting the top to extend the pencil or retract it back to use the stylus. The capacitive stylus works on smartphones, tablets, and other touch screen devices. 100% effective at every angle, the precision stylus tip allows for high accuracy, control, and speed. The mechanical pencil features Rotring's brass mechanism to provide precise lead advancement, and a fixed lead guidance sleeve prevents breakage and offers a clear view of the page. A knurled non-slip grip provides comfort. The tool's ergonomic metal barrel has a nice, balanced weight, and its hexagonal shape ensures fatigue-free writing and drawing and keeps the tool from rolling when laid down.

I purchased this pencil...
July 16, 2014
I purchased this pencil with the expectation of it becoming one of the best mechanical pencils I own. And as a bonus I could use it with my iPhone and iPad.

Unfortunately, there is a surprising degree of 'play' or 'sloppiness' between the extended gold-colored stylus and the pencil body. Enough play to break the lead inside the pencil as the lead is extruded while in use. Once broken, the lead is not controllable and has to be pulled out, and a new lead advanced into writing position. Then the next lead would break in just a few seconds! This makes the pencil just a very expensive stylus for my idevices.

I do use soft lead, in the B range, so perhaps a harder lead would work better. Nevertheless, I still wonder why Rotring doesn't ensure the gold-colored extension is not tightly held by the pencil's body. Then the pencil would meet my expectations.

But as it is, my recommendation now is to use your money on a better made pencil. The Ohto and Pentil and so on make superb products for much less money and much higher value.
