Verified Purchase
For 0.7, I have both the 800 and Rapid Pro. For quick writing, this works well (vs opening the 800). But this is lighter than the 800 if that matters to you. Compared to the Graphgear which I also own, I just think that for a sliding sleeve, the Rapid Pro looks much better. The graphgear has a nice grip and clip, but looks and body color wise, I'll use this in a business meeting over the pentel every time.

First of all, this pencil is absolutely the most high quality pencil that I have ever handled. Because of its great function and its sleek matte black finish, this pencil is in the top class for function and aesthetics.
When I was deciding which Rotring to buy(a 600 or the Rapid Pro), I was convinced that the Rapid Pro was better than the 600 especially because the tip of the Rapid Pro could retract. However, I was also unconvinced as well, because the Rapid Pro screwed on to a plastic screw, whereas the 600 screwed on to a metal screw which was a part of the metal body itself. But needless to say, I was more worried about the tip bending rather than the small, meager fact that the lower part of the Pro was attached to a probably high-grade, excellent plastic, much higher in quality and strength than most other expensive mechanical pencils.
All in all, I was worried that in some IMPOSSIBLE way, the plastic screw of the Pro might break, though to this day, my Rotring Rapid Pro still remains as a high-quality, sturdy yet stylish, and a purposeful yet beautiful pencil that I can and will recommend it to everyone who is able to afford this classic pencil.
4.8 stars out of 5 because of the plastic screw and the hole on the cap. (I think I'm being a bit paranoid (: )
