I just wanted to make...
, May 24, 2011
I just wanted to make the comment that on CultPens.com this pencil is not
half-price. It is less than 28 pounds, which at the current exchange rate of
1.62 USD to 1 GBP makes the pencil about $45. Standard shipping to the US is 10
pounds, so the total price would be about $60. While it can be found for
slightly less (I think pixie mall sells it for $49), rating an item low just
based on the price is not standard practice. Feel free to include comments about
price vs. quality, but please don't make that your only comment. It is not
helpful. Review the actual product.

I own many different...
, February 21, 2012
I own many different 600, 800 and also Rapid Pro. I really can’t understand
how somebody can say that the 800 is superior to the Rapid Pro. The 800 has a
nice grip, nice quality, heavy stuff. But the tip of the 0.5 of the 800 compared
to the tip of the Rapid Pro is “butter”. The 800 has this great “pocked
safe” feature. But it is only great to save your pockets. When you can draw
and/or write simultaneously with the 800 and the Rapid Pro you can really tell
the difference. The Rapid Pro in my opinion is the best Rotring pencils
available at the moment. Very stable, very comfortable, really a pleasure to
use. Far superior from the 0.5 800. I am giving 4 stars because of the price.
Please notice that the RapidPro price is 24.9 euro in Europe (less than 33
dollars). If you purchase them in stock you can get for sure a better price. I
think that a selling price of 40 dollars should be fine.

I have to disagree with some of the reviews written here. This mechanical
pencil, in my limited opinion, is WAY superior than the Rotring 600. I had the
two of them, and I fell this one superior in almost every aspect. At least for
my tastes this is a better pencil. Is longer, wider, and lighter than the
rotting 600, AND it's pocket safe. I written a full head to head comparison in
my site, feel free to check at nnil.es
The only negative point is the price, other than that, I can't recommend enough
this puppy. But black of course!.

I love this 0.5 mm pencil. I even purchased the Rapid Pro 1.0 mm ball point pen
and the 2.0 mm lead holder (all silver). I bought a beautiful leather 3 pen case
from Fountain Pen International (New York) and put together, what I believe to
be, the ultimate set. For me anyway, the Rapid Pro is the perfect instrument

Buy this pen. You will absolutely love it. Ive had mine for about a week. I
have a tried and true waterman I have been using for a while. Gave it up for
daily use for this baby, although its slightly longer, the knurled end helps you
write easier. You can control it quite well. Buy it. You will love it.
