It’s great but fickle

I love this pencil! But the bushing/ space holder has broken. Can someone from Pentel reach out and see if we can find parts to fix it?

This pencil is good quality and is easy to write with. I wish it had a larger eraser.

The best out there

I have been using mechanical pencils for drawing for fourth years when these came out all others went in the garbage. They
have a great feel perfectly balanced and a nice heft. I also teach advanced drawing and in the secound term I introduce graphgear 1000 to my students most love them and use them with traditional drawing supplies

So close to perfect

This is the closest to perfect mechanical pencil I have found. I like the weight, the durability, and I LOVE the retractable lead sleeve that protects my 0.3 mm ferrule from damage as I hustle between classes.

I only have one complaint, and it is almost a dealbreaker. I cannot stand the raised cushions in the grip. My personal preference is for a knurled metal grip, the more aggressive the better. I would spend as much as the pencil again for a replacement aluminum sleeve that covered the "non-latex pads".

12 Years and still going

I was given a Graph Gear 1000 0.9 diameter as a gift by a my mentor shortly before his untimely passing in October of 2007. I've gone through many lead and eraser refills over the years and have lost track of it more than a couple of times. Of all of my "tools" that I use in my profession, this pencil is hands down one of the best instruments I have ever used. If you are looking for quality and reliability, look no further.

Great Pencil

I love using this pencil, I feel my handwriting is better and the build quality of the pencil couldn't be any better.

Met expectations, very good so far. When buying, remember to order extra 0.3mm lead & erasers. That size is difficult to locate in stores.

I can’t break this if I tried

This is the best mechanical pencil that exists.
