Been using one of these...

Been using one of these for about 4 years now, purchased to replace a Pentel
207, and have been mostly happy with it. The retraction/clip mechanism was novel
to me, but now seems useful in terms of making dual purpose of two
already-existing items (the lead advance also extends the guide pipe ; the clip
acts as the lock mechanism, and then releases the guide pipe to retract - solid
The lead hardness indicator requires partial disassembly of the body to adjust &
then some practice/patience to get the body screwed back together without the
setting moving out of place.
