The Zoom505 series was released in 1986 and now represents over 20 years of fine design from Tombow. The series takes on a classic look and was winner of the international \"iF design award\" in 1990. The pencil features a specially treated shiny aluminum body, a low center of gravity, and a thick rubber grip for comfortable writing. Body colors are available in two standard and three limited-edition colors including a deep brown, a royal purple, a luxurious black, an elegant blue and a smooth gun metal. Weighs 35.5 g and takes 0.5 mm pencil lead. Tombow does not produce its own eraser refill for the Zoom 505shA. The eraser is only meant to act as a lead stopper, you have to unscrew the entire back of the pencil body to access it.

Pencil body dimensions: 135 mm length x 17 mm diameter.

The pencil is heavier...
Verified Purchase
The pencil is heavier and wider than most pencils. I prefer writing instruments with a nice girth and weight so these two traits were a plus to me. It has a high build quality and lead breaking was not a problem like it is for the Lamy 2000. I think the amount of lead advancement was ideal in fact. I really enjoyed the grip too: it forces you to hold the pencil in a particular location, and that particular location is exactly where I wanted to hold it for writing (I use it for doing math mostly). Of course if you are drawing then you might want to have more options about where to hold your pencil, but a good option is to use this pencil for writing and drafting pencil for, well, drafting. Use the correct pencil for the correct purpose people!!!

If I had to describe the pencil in a sentence I would say that it combines the comfort of a general use pencil with the some of the precision of a drafting pencil but can only be used for writing.

Summary: if you enjoy larger writing instruments with a bit of heft, the Tombow Zoom 505 is your best choice--it is better than the Pentel Kerry and probably the Lamy 2000 in this regard. If you have been using a drafting pencil like a Pentel P205, Graphgear, or a Rotring 600 for lengthy writing, then give your hand a break and get a pencil with a bit of HEFT!

P.S.
I had this pencil for about 6 months before I lost it :(. Hopefully we will be reunited again one day!
