If you do not want attention...
, March 4, 2011
If you do not want attention from the peasants using cheap mechanical pencils,
do not buy this. In my engineering classes and in the library, SOO many
comments. The simplistic design and solid construction are next to none. Unreal
little peice of engineering in my hand. I could think of way worse ways to spend
$30. My pencil before this was an alvin draft-matic. Huge difference in quality.
When I would spin the draftmatic with one hand on the tip, and the other on the
eraser, I could definitly tell it was not spinning true. The rotring 600 is
perfect in all aspects. It takes a little getting used to the weight
distribution as the rotrings full body is metal, but its well worth it.
The only draw back is that jet pens does not stock .7mm. That is definitly my
lead size of choice, but I can deal with .5 i suppose.
