Size: 0.9 mmColor: Yellow Barrel
I must say I am a huge fan of this series of mechanical pencil. I first picked up the 0.7mm style and loved it, however, in an effort to expand my collection I tried out the 0.9mm. I was afraid the lines would be too bold or thick, but for my handwriting it isn't bad at all. The lead hardly ever breaks, which was a problem for me with the 0.7mm model (likely a result of my hard-writing). I treat this pencil with respect and keep it close to me so I won't loose it. The erasers on these are nothing to brag about. I generally keep a Pentel Hi-Poylmer block eraser on me to do the job (and it works great)! Small price to pay for such an exceptional mechanical pencil. I've read of people having these same pencils for decades, needing only to refill lead and eraser. I can expect to keep mine that long. The construction seems very durable. you can remove the metal clip if you'd like, and easily reattach if you need to. I've been using mine for a few months now. Finally the semester is over and I have time to write a review for this tool that has given so much to me. My only fear is Pentel will discontinue this product (I know what I want for Christmas)!

Size: 0.9 mmColor: Yellow Barrel
I absolutely love these pencils! I own the Pentel versions in .3, .5, .7, and .9 and they all serve a very useful purpose. I'm a contractor and use the .9 for trim work where precise marking is a must. A regular carpenter pencil is to bulky. I am in total agreeance with a previous review that said these things are built tough. I keep one in my tool belt at all times and have never broke one yet. Kudos to a great product!

I first started using the P205 in 1972 and was impressed then at the quality, ease of use, and applicability for my professional and private life. This Pentel product has always been my favorite, so I was wary about replacing what I had lost. I am used to seeing quality suffer with each new issue of the same product--not so with Pentel. This is the same pencil I started with decades ago and will never change brands or models. The perfect product for me. This order was shipped from Amazon directly and, as usual, was here a few days later, packed perfectly, and the product was ready for use. I use this pencil to write textbooks as well as any other pencil needs. Highest recommendation for price, product, and supplier.

I really like these pencils, they are built like a tank and with the 0.9 lead I can be my normal heavy handed self. I cannot use 0.5's, constantly breaking the lead.

These are my favorite mechanical pencils for sketching and writing. They come with HB lead but I refill with Pentel 2B for the darker line. The .5 line is crisp, the steel lead holder prevents breakage, the pencil is lightweight and very slender- two features that I prefer over all other mechanical pencils. The finger grip indentations are just enough, and right in the plastic barrell. (I do not like pens/pencils with the metal grips as they bug me under my fingernails!) I will not bother trying the pricier pencils on the market because this perfectly fits my needs at a very low price. My old ones did not fail or break- I just needed a few more for purse and sketch kits.

Like most people who have used mechanical pencils for a long time, I settled into my favorite couple pencils, bought a number of them and used them for years. For me it was the Y&C Double Knock and the Alvin Draftmatic dating back to the mid-90's. But then I started using "luxury" pen and pencil sets from Cross, Parker, Pelican and Waterman and lost touch with the "functional" mechanical pencil market. But both between a realization that these "luxury" brands aren't actually interested in making a good pencil as much as something good looking (don't get me wrong, they're good, but writing quality of their pencils is not what drives them) and my kids getting to the age where they could use a good mechanical pencil, I decided to dig back in and re-learn the current offerings. I decided to give my older kids (as stocking stuffers for Christmas) one of each of the viable contenders and then borrow them on occasion to see what I thought. It's now been a couple months and I'm reviewing them all:

Best overall: Pentel GraphGear 500 (full review: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2V3OHBEJN60WZ)
Best value: Zebra M301 (http://www.amazon.com/review/R1U5S4D5OEPY3F)
Best retractable tip: Pentel GraphGear 1000 (http://www.amazon.com/review/R1WGL8ZCB03SQK)
Best rubber grip: Staedtler 925-05 (http://www.amazon.com/review/R1ZX77U5OV8OS6)

Also rans (in order of preference):
Alvin Draftmatic (http://www.amazon.com/review/R1VQY95VWPF0YI)
Uni Kuru Tora (http://www.amazon.com/review/R2JV48N3D6KXH3)
