This pencil is lightweight, with neutral balance, and a positive, gratifying
click to its brass 3-jawed clutch. The grip is hard ribbed plastic and very
grippy. This is a serious tool and a joy to use. I keep it loaded with 2H lead
to take advantage of its slight weight and nimble balance for the faintest of
layout markings in preparation for ink drawings. I don't know yet about
durability, but it seems plenty sturdy for the price, and I'd have no
reservations about snapping another one up, should it fail. This is a great buy.

This is a great pencil! The mechanism is metal. The plastic ringed grip is
nearly as comfortable as the pentel PG5, and the lead indicator stays where it
should. The clip is conveniently thicker than I expected and is very tight.
Unfortunately, should you remove the clip there is nothing that will prevent the
pencil from rolling. The cap has a satisfying click when I place it on the
pencil that I haven't experienced before and happen to like. The diameter of the
cap and the fact that it's plastic make it a bit boring to press, but the
precision and satisfying click with which the lead comes out makes up for it.
The lead reservoir is a bit free to wobble, but it hasn't made any rattles so
far and I don't think it ever will so I'm not to concerned.

This is an okay pencil but it is still really nice. I writes very smooth and is
lightweight and perfect size. VERY NICE PENCIL.

Zebra Drafix Drafting Pencil-The Japanese Brother of the German(yet also made in
Japan) Staedtler 925 05
Pros: Professional, thin, sleek design; instead of a rubber grip, it comes with
a ribbed ABS plastic grip but it actually feels comfortable when writing with
it, comes with a lead indicator that runs on a ratchet click joint to prevent
sliding, eraser cover is tight, and tip is great so you can see lead length.
Cons: Aside from the fact that lead jams may occur and that it doesn't come with
a cleaning needle, there's nothing else to nitpick about this pencil.
Verdict: Just like Staedtler 925 05,This pencil is a must buy and excellent to
have in your stationery set! It's cheaper than 925 05 but performs just as well
and the lead indication window makes a very satisfying click!
