Roller Ball Pens
I got this as a gift and it is the best mechanical pencil I have used. The aesthetics of the pencil is the first thing you notice, but the weight and balance are what really make it a pleasure to use. I have had people use it and comment on how nice it feels to write with. I never have an issue with the lead jamming or breaking for that matter. You can't go wrong with this purchase. I do wish the tip would retract but its never been an issue sine I don't tend to carry it in my pocket.
Based in Hamburg, Germany, Rotring is a German technical writing instrument company. The name "Rotring" (rot ring) means "red ring" in German. This iconic red ring is still placed around the barrels of Rotring products today.
Since its founding in 1928, Rotring has invented numerous new pen technologies. Its first product was the Tintenkuli (Inkograph), a stylographic pen (a fountain pen with a thin steel tube as its tip). In 1953, Rotring's Rapidograph gained enough popularity to become the archetypal technical pen at the time.
In 1979, Rotring launched its Tikky product line, which was a technical drawing instrument line also suitable for everyday use. The Tikky is still well received in the market today. At JetPens.com, Rotring's classic drafting pencils with model number 600 and 800 have a large following of drafters.
