The Rotring 600 0.5mm
Finally got my Rotring 600 0.5mm. With all the problems that I’ve read about with the Rotring 800+, it seems that the 600 is the way to go. Before the Rotring arrived, the Pentel Graph Gear 1000 was my current favorite pencil that I own. On its arrival, the Rotring delegated it to 2nd place before I could even get the pencil completely out of its box (excellent packaging, is just one of many "little things" this product gets right) .It is everything that I hoped it would be. The Black Rotring 600 is easily to coolest looking mech pencil out there. It has an ominous Darth Vader-y feeling to it. To say it’s solidly built is an understatement. Quality German industrial design and construction. You think it looks good though, its performance is even better. The balance is PERFECT for my writing style. It feels so much better than anything else that I have tried before. No wobble at all in the tip. A nice crisp, audible click for lead extension. Signs of good craftsmanship are noted sometimes by the little, almost unnoticed aspects of design. Like the 600’s lead grade indicator. It would be fine if this were just a part of the pencil that indicated the type of lead inside the pencil. But the Rotring takes it a step further making this portion of the pencil knurled metal (same as the grip employs) and tops it like a cherry with its iconic red ring "logo". So yes, it's a lead grade indicator... A lead grade indicator WITH STYLE! Is this a requirement? Certainly not, but it’s these little touches that make me appreciate the thought and care that went into this pencils design.
I’m not going to get into a bulleted list of pro's and con's, simply because there are no cons. I can't find one thing negative about this product. I love the reviews that say "the non-retractable tip is fragile" and then proceed to ding it a star. I'm sorry, but it's obvious that this is a finely engineered product, a certain amount of care is required. Because you are careless enough to drop it is not Rotrings fault. Take proper care, and your tip won't get bent. Simple. (Of course, I have now jinxed myself so that by the end of the day, I’m fairly certain that I will have dropped mine by days end). In such cases, it’s comforting to know you can get a replacement tip for around 11 bucks. Other people say, "The eraser is crappy". Guess what Skippy, every eraser in every mechanical pencil sucks. EVERY one. If you use a mechanical pencil without having a dedicated eraser at the ready (my personal fav is the Uniball Boxy, it's also very Darth Vader-y) you won't using mechanical pencils for much longer. It's just something that you have to do when using a mechanical pencil.
Bottom line. While the Rotring 600 0.5mm is a very expensive pencil. It's worth every penny in my opinion. I can't say it any better than the Amazon product description does:
"An iconic tool, meant for a lifetime of use."
Now I need to grab the silver one so I have a pair right??....
1) Drawing anime and manga
2) Basic writing
3) Physics and Calculus...you know graphs and stuff.
To start things of, I would like to say that I will be comparing this to the Pentel Graphgear 500 and 1000, and the OHTO-Super Promecha Drafting pencil.
Now that that's out of the way. I will start with the material of the thing. The pencil is all metal, even the inside is metal. I'm not sure what metal it is, but it seems to me as a mix of both aluminum and stainless steel. So this pencil is sturdy as can be. Also add that this isn't as heavy as would would think. It is light, that is when you compare it to other mechanical pencils that have some metal in the body. The pencil's weight is also evenly balanced, unlike the OHTO and Graphgear 500. The graphgear 1000 seems like it has even weight balance, but it is actually slightly heavier to the tip. The Rotring 600 is shorter by a 1/4 in compared to the other 3 as well. But that's not really a bad thing unless you have huge hands. It also has a hexagon shaped body, for those that like that wooden pencil shape.
Writing with this is also a lot better. It's so smooth, it's like it just glides across the paper. The lead advance is a bit on the shorter side, with the OHTO and graphgears having a longer lead advance. The short lead advance is good for writing and making graphs and equations; but for drafting/sketching, this is not so good.
In case of 0.5 mm and 0.7 mm, I went with the 0.7mm because of the thicker lead. The thicker lead is stronger and also much more smoother on paper. But if you want finer lines, go with the 0.5. I'm able to control my hands quite well, so I can make the fine lines of a 0.3 using a 0.7.
Overall this mechanical pencil is amazing and worth the investment. I'm sure that this thing would last you a good 2 years (minimum: that is if you use it like I do. If not, it would probably be even longer.)
