Solid well made leadholder....
, February 9, 2012
Solid well made leadholder. On the heavy side but very well balanced. Knock
button mechanism works flawlessly with no rattle. Knurled grip is comfortable
with no sharp edges. No lead play (wobble). Can be broken down to gently clean.
Beautiful drawing pencil...
I have mixxed feelings....
, November 23, 2012
I have mixxed feelings. I've spent a long time with this lead holder to make
sure I could write a review with confidence, and after about 6 months with the
Rotring 800, the pros have been obvious:
1) I absolutely love the weight
2) the action is perfect
3) the look is great
but the cons are what bring this back to a mediocre score...
The holder has so much mass that it takes very little for it to start
unscrewing. This means:
1) I'm overgripping the holder when I want to keep the edge of my lead against
2) The feel of the holder suffers because I get feedback from the swivel of the
barrel trying to loosen
Please, someone tell me if there is a way to get this thing to stop being so
loose... I've tried a few things, but I almost feel like maybe I got a lemon.
For $80, I'd expect this would be easily caught by a quality department.
