Rotring 300 Drafting Pencil - 0.7 mm - Black Body

I wanted to like this pencil since it features many traits I look for in a pencil. It is made of a higher density plastic. It has a simple minimalist appearance and the lead advance, though stiff, feels precise. Unfortunately the pencil I received has a slight give to the lead which is very distracting. This was very common with the disposable Zebra pencils but I didn't expect it in a higher end technical pencil.

It might just be my copy but at over $8 per pencil I expect Rotring to do a better job.

A substantial pencil with a fine black finish. Though metal doesn't feel too cold in winter.

Fed less lead out than Japanese pencils. A favorite.

  My new favorite pencil!..., April 18, 2011
My new favorite pencil! Lays down almost as quickly as a wooden pencil. Has the finish and balance as a Staedtler Mars Lumograph. Get this instead of the rebranded Dixon Ticonderogas on Amazon selling for much more.
