The retracting tip is great, so no holes in pockets.
A. Cox
It feels very comfortable in the hand, and the gel grips along with the knurled surface are a perfect balance of soft with roughness for grip.
Graphgear 1000
The pencil looks great, has a nice weight to it and doesn't feel fragile.

I have chosen this sharp pencil after a vigilantly careful 3-4 hour session in a department store.
I went into several stores and compared all the mechanical pencils they had at that time.
I took 10+ pencils for a ride (CDT, Cross, Faber Castell, Mitsubishi Kuru Toga, Ohto Promecha, Parker, Pelikan, Pilot, Pentel Graph Limited 1000, Rotring, Staedtler 885, Zebra Tect 2way etc. ).

For whatever reasons drawing with the Graphgear 1000 just feels right the very moment you take this pen into your hand.

When I made my decision I decided for the feature I REALLY need for a long term relationship. ;-)

While the "obvious" feature would certainly include the visual design you will be surprised to find out how much more there is to it, as I will elaborate below.

Hard factors:

1) Heavy usage of hand and/or rheumatoid arthritis:

If you or a good friend happen to play guitar daily for many hours and take notes at the same time or are unfortunate enough to already have rheumatoid arthritis in your hands, then this is "The pencil you don't want to leave the house without". I am not talking about the reliability itself but about how comfortable it is to use. This pen allows you to do more with much less effort !!

2) You can hide the sharp and sensitive penfront inside the pen.
While this may not be an obvious advantage, consider that you may accidently drop it once during its lifecycle.

The fact that the pens tip is hidden on the inside does not only protect your investment itself it also somewhat lessens the likelyhood of an actual damage to your other inventory, your expensive new shirt - or worse an injury to a family members eye (kids) etc.

These things are great. A bit expensive for a pencil but worth it. The thickness of the pencil is just right, and the spring loaded retractable clip is great. The tip doesn't wiggle around like a lot of drafting pencils with retractable tips.

The pencil itself is built really well too. The plastic parts are all high quality and the metal parts fit together perfectly. When you shake it all you hear is the lead moving around, there's no parts rattling at all unless the tip is retracted. Very tight construction.

Also unlike other drafting pencils this one actually has a decent sized eraser. I still carry around a block eraser but this one is actually big enough I don't hesitate to use it like I do with my other ones.

The only problem I have with it is there was no metal pin stuck in the eraser to clean out the tip but I haven't had any lead break yet so it might not need it.

All in all, these things are a pleasure to use.

I have lots of mechnical pencils and for the price this is the best one. My top three are the Rotring 600, Faber-Castel Vario and of course the Pentel 1000. The 1000 has the features you would expect on a good automatic pencil including the HB, F, M, 2H, 4H,2B,B (controls the softness) and a feature not on those other two: You press the clip and it retracts the last part of the metal barrel that sticks out and contains the lead. Without that, pencils such as the Rotring 600 and Vario can be dangerous weapons and cut through your shirt pocket or break. The 1000 pencil retracts so you can carry it arround in your pockets without it cutting through it. The only feature I wish it had was a moving eraser like the Vario. I have a heavy hand apparently and I am constantly breaking the leads of many other automatic pencils even when I try to write softly but not with the 1000 (.7). Also I like the grip of the rough metal surface which is pleasant and provides precise control over your writing. The silver and blue metal surface looks very nice. You would pay about 3 times more for a Cross mechanical and in my opinion an inferior product to the Pentel Graphgear.

This is a great product in almost every way with one important exception: the clip. The clip on this pencil is used to retract the metal tip of the pencil so if you have it in your pocket or your pencil bag you don't stick yourself reaching in. You do this by pushing the top of the clip which raises the bottom of the clip which is essentially 'holding' the metal tip in place for drawing, so it retracts. But if you are using the clip regularly to clip it onto your pocket or whatever else, it becomes loose, and the bottom of the clip will no longer hold the tip in place without forcing the clip into the hole. Really, it's pretty annoying. And at a certain point, holding it in place won't even work.

I own 8 of these pencils, in the .3 .5 and .7 variety, and it has been a problem with all of them. So it definitely isn't one faulty pencil I am having issues with. I think you are better off dropping your money on a super promecha, it's more expensive but if you care enough about your pencil to spend so much on a Graph Gear 1000 you probably don't mind spending the extra cash on a better product. It's also a much better looking pencil aesthetically.

Hope this helps someone who likes to keep their pencils clipped inside the pocket of their pants shirt or bag.
