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
I was surprised by the quality of this pencil especially with its price.
Metal knurled grip looks superb, and feels very nice too.
Only minor glitch, the rubber insde the tip drags on the lead, so the click,
though nicely heared, is not sharp at the end. But that's really least important
thing of all.
Here is what I didn't like:
-Looks much cheaper in real life than on the picture, especially knurling looks
like there is no pattern and it's all shiny-blinky.
-Does not have a decent click
-Equal weight over the whole length. This means the top part is too heavy for my
Especially when you can buy Pentel Graphgear 500 for almost twice as little.
Will highly recommend Graphgear 500 over this Rapidomatic.
