The beautiful, metal body Rotring Rapid Pro ballpoint pen is truly one for the pros. It features a hexagonal body, a circular cross-hatch metal grip, and a sturdy metal clip. The top knock button clicks to extend and retract the pen tip, and both chrome-finish silver and powder-coated black body colors are available.

Pen dimensions: Approximately 5.7 inches (14.5 cm) long and 0.3 inches (9 mm) in diameter.

The pen body is just...
April 30, 2014
The pen body is just like the rest of the Rapid Pro set, stunning to look at and solid. The ink is only adequate, and I'll be looking to try different refills in it when I have the time. The one thing that I find annoying is they finished the knock button with the same textured finish as the rest of the pen, which causes a mild grating sound whenever I click the button. As a result, I find myself reaching for the silver one instead, which is very smooth.

I've had my Rapid Pro for about a month now and am, overall, quite pleased. I was not overwhelmed by the ink the pen came with. I replaced it with a Parker Gel refill and am much happier with the writing. The pen is a joy to write with. Great weight. Lovely texture. Looks sharp. I have a few minor complaints. The first is that the clicky on the top of the pen feels a bit loose. No real problems with it yet, but it doesn't give the most confidence for long-term durability. The second is that the Rapid Pro is just not as nice feeling a writing implement as the Rotring 600 pencil. I miss the crisp lines and narrow styling of 600. The Rapid Pro is just slightly larger in diameter and the hexagonal shape is slightly rounded at the edge. Otherwise, I anticipate this being a pen that I will use for years to come.

It feels so great. Very dark, matte, finish. Feels like it came from the movie Tron, which is exactly what I wanted. Also really recommend the Rotring 600 mechanical pencil, which is even cooler.

I loved this pen when i got it, but after dropping it one time from a standing height, it no longer works. The mechanism will not allow you to retract and stay retracted in order to write. Sad because I really loved this pen.

I love this pen! This is my new everyday pen that I will obsess over, and it is replacing my Fisher AG7, which replaced a slew of Parker Jotters. I've always liked the style of drafting pencils, and that probably dates back to finding them at my grandparents' house, and this is about the best pen in production to fit that style.

I had never actually seen a rOtring before a month ago, but I ordered a Tikky pen and and a Tikky II mechanical pencil to test out the brand, and it immediately became clear why people liked these. I chose to give my beautiful yellow Tikky away to one of my gawking coworkers, as it was a bit larger than my small hands could appreciate, and I bought this in hopes that it would fit my hands a bit better, and thankfully it does. Its knurled grip barrel is no wider than the body, although the hexagonal shape makes it seem as though it would be in some of the pictures.

I immediately understood why people obsess over the rOtring 600, and getting one of those is now on my long-term grandiose things-to-buy-if-I'm-ever-not-poor list. The weight of this pen is perfect. It is hefty, but not cumbersome, and the bulk of the weight is centered in the grip and above the tip, so it feels very solid and balanced when writing. (One of my few complaints about the AG7 was how top-heavy the pen is.) The feel of the black coating is nice, but if I forget to click the tip out, it will mark up paper.

I use this pen at work, so it is with me and use about 60 hours a week at minimum. The pen itself was made in Japan and comes in a nice little cardboard (100% recycleable!) box. The included ink cartridge listed France as its place of manufacture, so I suspect it is just a rOtring rebranded typical Parker ink cartridge, which isn't really good or bad. I replaced it with my preferred Fisher pressurized ink cartridge immediately. Overall, I love this pen, and I will definitely be getting a silver one soon.
