To the guy who asked what the difference is, I'll answer.
I ordered both and got them today.
The high grade one's grip is a little slick in comparison to the older one, so
I'd say the older one is easier to hold on to. The old one's kuru toga device is
also easier to activate, I guess you can say. You don't have to press down as
hard to make it rotate.
I bought the pencils to draw with and noticed right away that they're better for
writing. If you're using them for sketching, it probably won't rotate as much
until you do a dark line. Not a problem though because you will end up doing
dark lines, shadows, etc. Now for writing, it works like a charm. Very nice.
Anyway, the high grade one feels nicer in my hand, it feels a little heavier and
it's nicer looking. The older one is just plastic. They're both awesome though,
but if you don't want to spend 15 dollars, the older one does just as good as a
job, as long as you don't mind the plastic frame.
I'd definitely recommend this pencil to anyone. If you're writing a lot, this is
the best one you can get probably. If you're sketching or drawing, I don't know
if this one is the best but it's definitely the best I've used so far.
