To update the earlier review, I use this thing a lot now. It doesn't grow old and remains very fun - I'd currently rank it quite as highly as the rotring 600, which I thought substantially better previously. Of the pencils I've owned or used and liked, I prefer it to ohto's promecha 1500p and place it just behind my longtime favourites, two pretty ancient faber-castells, the tk-matik and alphamatic. 2c.

I was given (after suggesting the possibility...) one of these as a present recently. It has the designer appeal of a great sports car or designer watch and I see it lying appealingly on my desk, waiting for me to stir out great prose, or to derive a couple of heretofore unknown nonlinear partial differential equations. Then I pick it up and think, where did I put the Rotring and what am I going to do with this thing? Like a beautiful woman, one can't help staring at its curves, angles, design and lusting for more. But alas, it is more than one can take when the flesh does not quite match, the finish is aloof and the interaction is not really one to one. Farewell sweet one, I'm afraid it's my fault.
