Bought the .5 & .7 for sketching and drawing. Love using the .7 with harder leads like 2H for sketching. This size resists breaking because it's thinker. Then I use the .5 with HB lead to make the final lines.

Both are wonderful instruments for drawing. Just don't try to shade with them, use wooden pencils for that.

This is a work-horse of drafting pencils. I use it primarily with color lead (blue, red, and green). It is made of solid materials and it gives a feeling of assurance when handled. Good compliment to the 0.3/0.5mm set. Highly recommended.

These pencils are great. I love that they complement the 2mm in the set. My only complaint is that they do not have the large range of lead grades to select like the 2mm.

It is very well made and is a great writer. I have the 0.7 and 0.9 for writing. It feels great for drafting as the friction on the grip gives it great control although I have not done hand drafting for a very long time as nearly all technical drawing is done on computers. The matte finish and the cut on the grip makes it feel very secure and it is also very light in weight, not bottom heavy like many drafting pencil with a metal grip.

excellent quality. the grip is very comfortable - just the right amount of friction and it does not feel rough to the touch. the weight feels good too. substantial but not too heavy. I am comparing it with a the Rotring 600 which is so heavy, it feel clumsy. not so with this staedtler.

the lead indicator does not work too well as it spins too easily.

it looks elegant too in a nerdy way - perfect for a scientist or engineer.

it is also short enough that it won't poke holes on my shirt.
