I have mixxed feelings....
, November 23, 2012
I have mixxed feelings. I've spent a long time with this lead holder to make
sure I could write a review with confidence, and after about 6 months with the
Rotring 800, the pros have been obvious:
1) I absolutely love the weight
2) the action is perfect
3) the look is great
but the cons are what bring this back to a mediocre score...
The holder has so much mass that it takes very little for it to start
unscrewing. This means:
1) I'm overgripping the holder when I want to keep the edge of my lead against
2) The feel of the holder suffers because I get feedback from the swivel of the
barrel trying to loosen
Please, someone tell me if there is a way to get this thing to stop being so
loose... I've tried a few things, but I almost feel like maybe I got a lemon.
For $80, I'd expect this would be easily caught by a quality department.
