Better apparent quality...

Better apparent quality than the ubiquitous Staedtler Mars 780 (haven't tried the 925 available here) for less money, with more pronounced knurling on the grip. Nice "knock" system. One feature of the 780 that I don't really miss is the lack of sharpener in the cap: I'd rather carry something like the Sun-Star SharPits 2 mm, since that wouldn't leave carbon dust inside the holder barrell to get all over the inside of your bag! I do wish it had an adjustable indicator (like the 925) instead of color coded barrels.

This pencil is not just...

This pencil is not just good. I't's godlike!

Initially I bought it just for the click-system, which turned out to be a complete success. It produces very nice click and movement is exactly as it should be - precise and predictable. Depending on the angle of the lead you'll need 2 or 3 clicks to get it to the optimal position.

The tip itself has very nice looks and some good knurling which not only looks nice, but is also very grippy.

The barrel is quite light, so the pencil alltogether is quite front-heavy, which I like, but not overwhelmingly so.
Clip is simple and short, and is a bit on a tight side. You have to slightly pry it with the finger to put in in the shirt pocket.
There is also no sharpener in the cap, but they're quite useless most of the time anyway.

Bottomline - get one!
