If you can pony up for the 800 its worth it imo, i often carry my drating penicls in my pocket. The one flaw with the 600 is that the tip does not retract. Another option is the rapid pro, which is also very nice.

The Rotring 600 is a great choice! I love all that I have.
The 800 and the Rapid Pro what Scott suggested are also great.
I was always afraid that the 800's mechanism, would be a bit loose or wobbly while writing. I don't know if this is the case or not, but that would certainly drive me nuts...
The Rapid Pro is a much smoother pencil overall. Great, but the "original" is THE one! For me at least.
I prefer the sharper, more technical look to the smooth and more elegant Rapid Pro.
As I feel the 600s have better balance too.
There are lots of great pencils out there, really!
I had my eyes on the Pilot S20 (wood), Caran d'Ache 844, TWSBI Precision (very similar to the Rotring 600, but with a retractable sleeve also), UNI Kuru Toga.
I use them for marking books. Mechanical pencils are also environment friendly.
I haven't tried a Pentel so far, but they seem to be very well priced and good quality pencils.
I have a Staedtler 925-25-20 which is great for the price, but you can really feel the price difference between that and the Rapid Pro.
Nice! The case seems to be great too!
Pilot Vanishing Point (easy, but I can't pick out the color :P), but I don't know the two next to the Hi-Tech.
Otho Super Promecha and Promecha. and an eraser maybe?
There is a Mono eraser stick (white clip) along with 2 Promecha, first gen and lastest gen. PM-1003S and PM1503P.
Anyone checked out this thread?
