Verified Purchase
Thia was such a disappointment to me. After all the hype I'd read I decided to buy one. When I went to use it the EXTRA FINE nib wrote wider than the FINE nib of the Pilot V-Pen! I was expecting something as fine as the Pilot Penmanship (both are labeled as EF) but was I disappointed! I won't be buying another LAMY product, not after this!

This is one of the nicest pencils of it's type. The regulation feature is easily controlled and the pencil handles nicely.

When I first say a review...
When I first say a review of this pen I was excited as i knew by the shape of the nib that it was a calligraphy type pen but one that could be pushed, unlike a conventional calligraphy nib, which can only be pulled. After buying one I was so stoked that I bought the other 2 colors! When held and used correctly the Plumix will give any hand an elegant look! This is an excellent pen and a great companion to the Pilot Penmanship. I am glad to see JetPems carrying this wonderful pen!

This is a great pencil!...
This is a great pencil! The adjustable lead sleeve exposure is a handy feature if you don't want or need the full 4mm length of lead sleeve exposed. Frankly I use it simply as a lead sleeve hide/reveal device. I expose all 4mm's of lead sleeve at a time when I use the pencil. The lead length exposure device is one of the greatest devices ever put on a pencil. I adjusted mine so that it puts out enough lead with a single push of the button that it takes 3 to 4 clicks in order to expose enough lead to write with. I have a habit of clicking my pencils every few minutes as I write in order to replenish the lead. With the 1500P I can set it so that I don't get too much lead exposed as I do this. Over all it's a great pencil!

When I first saw one of these I had to have one. I'm glad that I got mine before they were all sold out. The pencil is solid despite the fact that the body moves up and down. The body locks in both the writing mode and hiding mode. It twists to lock and unlock and the lock is solid both ways. This is no novelty hide the sleeve pencil. This is a true professionals pencil that offers a unique way of hiding the lead sleeve so that the pencil can be carried in the pocket of briefcase without damaging either you or the pencil's lead sleeve. It also feels solid in the hand and writes very well. Mitsubishi has a winner on it's hands.

I have reevaluated this pencil and find th is I hold it a little lower down on the grip so that my fingers grasp the knurling and not just the lined upper portion of the grip then I can hold onto the pencil better and control it better. However it is a bit on the skinny side for me so my rating has not changed. But still, for those who have skinnier fingers than I do may well find this pencil a five star winner.

Verified Purchase
The Platinum Pro Use MSD 500A was my first Platinum pencil. My second was an MSD 300A. The 500A is a very nice pencil. I like the rubber grip, though like all such grips it's a lint attractor. The pencil feels good in my hand and points well. The lead sleeve is exactly 4mm as it should be. The pencil noes not rattle when I write with it but can be made to rattle if shaken. This is a combination of the lead in the reservoir and the lead reservoir hitting the inside of the body. No biggie. I don't normally shake my pencils. The lead grade indicator has enough friction to keep the ring in place during normal use. Funny thing is while the body is plastic the push button id blackened brass! Overall a nice pencil. I like it.

Verified Purchase
This pencil was a very pleasant surprise to me. I don't know why I expected it to be less of a pencil than it is but I did. This is my first pilot drafting pencil and is a pleasure to write with. It's bottom heavy due to the metal grip sleeve and end cap so it sets well in the hand. It has a nice girth and the fine knurling on the grip sleeve presents the user with a nice griping surface. The S10 has a very pleasing shape with a stylish pocket clip. Only the color is wrong! Why yellow for the 0.3mm size? Why couldn't it have been blue? Anyway the lead grade indicator stays in place by friction and believe me, once in place it's not moving unless you want it too. Lead is projected in a large enough increment that 2 clicks is all that's needed to produce enough lead to write with. All in all a very nice pencil indeed!

Verified Purchase
I like Pentel pencils, I have over 22 of them. The Graph 1000 For Pro is however not my favorite. For me at least it's just a shade on the skinny side. But otherwise a great Pentel pencil. The body and grip sleeve are plastic while the end cap is blackened brass with a stainless steel lead sleeve. The pocket clip is also blackened metal, probably stainless steel. The lead grade indicator in the push button locks in with a snap so the indication doesn't wander. Like all Pentel pencils the lead is extended in small increments so just the right amount of lead is projected each time...
