I own many different...

I own many different mechanical pencils and I am a collector. I wanted to give
the rotring 800 a try and I bought the 2.0 and the 0.5mm version, both in black
I have to say that the mp is solid and comfortable to use, if you love heavy
writing staff like I do. The weight helps a lot in using a low force to write
and draw nice black lines.
Anyway I can’t give more than 3 stars. Not because of the price, but because
of the retractable tip. I love the idea but not how they made it. The tip seems
to have a little of play, not very stable like other rotrings that I own. In the
beginning I thought that it was a problem of my 0.5 so I made a video and sent
it to other rotring 800 users that I found searching in ebay feedbacks. Most of
them told me that they have the same “problem”. This is not something that
you will easily notice when you write or draw, but from a rotring I expected
I am more then happy with the 2.0mm version, but I really don’t suggest to buy
the 800 0.5 unless you can try it. I will not return it because, as I said, I
am a collector, but if I had to decide what MP to buy I would go for a rapid pro
or a 600.
