This is my first lead holder, so I do not have an expansive knowledge of them,
but I can say it's wonderful. Even though it has a plastic body there is some
good weight to it. I use it all the time (and I am not a pencil guy, typically),
it is quite nice. Very easy to use, and quite handsome, indeed.
The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars was the lead grade indicator: I
bought 3B lead, put it in, and turned the lead grade indicator only to find out
that it only indicates as high as 2B. This doesn't take away from the quality of
writing or the feel of the pencil, but it was disappointing, to a degree, that
the lead I chose to be in there cannot be correctly displayed by the lead grade
Just for everyone's information, here are the lead grades that the lead grade
indicator has: 4H, 2H, H, F, HB, B, 2B.
It would be very cool if there were an option from Rotring to change the
