This pencil is a bit...
This pencil is a bit of a mixed bag:

Pros:
-Very comfortable to write with
-Very smooth writing
-Good lead advancement mechanism

Cons:
-Not particularly durable. Mine was prone to jamming
-0.3mm lead breaks frequently if you're not careful
-Non-retracting tip is kind of fragile. I'm pretty sure mine got bent in my backpack, which was responsible for the occasional lead jamming. Had to disassemble clean the broken pieces out, and reassemble. Takes about 2-3 minutes and happened every few days or approx 10hrs of writing
-The metal etched grip is good, but once your fingers get sweaty it gets tough to keep a grip.

Overall it isn't bad, but you must transport it in a hard pencil case to avoid damage, and it has some annoyances

This just may be my favorite pencil. It is about the same thickness as the Staedtler 925, but with the metal grip it's bottom heavy, giving the user better control than with the 925. I also prefer the metal grip over the rubber grip of the 925, as the rubber attracts a ton of lint. The lead advances just a fraction of a mm at a time so breakage is held to a minimum. It also includes a clean out rod, which many pencil manufacturers are beginning to omit. I would choose this pencil over the others in its class, such as the Zebra Drafix and the Staedtler 925.

Excellent quality for the price. Good weight in hand. I was afraid the lead would be easy to break but it is fine. (No pun intended). Nice pencil!

I love the feel of this pencil in my hand: Its weight is perfect, its balance is great and the knurling grip is comfortable and wide enough for my grip. The lid advancing mechanism seems to be very reliable and the price is very attractive.
