But when you think about it though, you can get 12 of these babies for $20. In comparison, there are a ton of plasticky (but well-designed) pencils over $20. But I'm not a metal-over-plastic snob - sometimes plastic works to the design's advantage in terms of weight - plus there are a ton of metal-bodied pencils well above $20 that doesn't quite do it like the Zebra does.

I'm always boggled as to why more pencils take a cue from the Rotrings/Rapidomatics/Draftmatics and use that style of lead indicator - case in point: I lost the metal sleeve for the lead indicator on my 925....again.   Heck even the Zebra Drafix is not as loosey-goosey - the indicator has a real nice snap to it... Anyways, there is/was a listing for a Pilot H2080 on ebay. They look nice. If anyone has a real well-rounded collection of older Pilot MPs, please do...
       
     
     
Apologies for the successive posts, flash had been soul-crushingly slow as per usual so I resolved to empty my stash and get to the 100th page. Which, congratulations are in order for, I presume.
