It is good that the grip part feels comfortable ...but it is difficult to
control this pencil because of the grip part for drafting and sometimes even for
daily writing. The design is quite fancy though.
My second favorite 0.3mm mechanical pencil! The design is pretty fancy and slim.
The interesting feature is that you can control how much lead will out, but you
may not end up using this feature a lot. I would consider this to be more
durable than pentel graph 1000(my first favorite). The grip part may be good for
preventing slipping, but it feels uncomfortable if you use it for a long time.
I have had this model nearly for 10 years now. Whenever it broke, I would order
this same model again. It took 3 years for it to have paint slightly chipped
off(only on the edge of the pencil) from the surface. Considering that I use
this mechanical pencil everyday, it is very durable. If there is anything that
bothered me bit was the grip part. The grip part may feel too hard on the
surface when you are using this for the first time.
If I have to score this mechanical pencil out of 100, I would give it 92.
