That Sanford is a nice design. I might get one to see if it can hold a candle to the Rotring 600.

I'm a staunch supporter of Mirado Black Warrior pencils. Granted, I prefer to use a pen, but c'mon, how can you NOT use a pencil named the Mirado Black Warrior?!

hmm... I used to have a 'pen-addiction' where I collected Peas... lol I anyway recently I've developed a liking for pencils again... but still not such a big fan of mechanical pencils, normal one's draw much better!

is anyone here into pen spinning?
Japen Spinning

Pencils currently in rotation:







As for pen spinning, the only one I can do is the basic twirl around the thumb. It's a common sight among my engineering peers. We constantly have pencils in our hands.

a few Rotring 600 glamour shots...

^ good god that pencil looks amazing.

After reading this whole thread and looking on ebay, i am pretty firmly decided on a Rotring 600 in black, either 0.5 or 0.7.

I use just normal 0.7 BIC pack pencils right now. With the Rotring, should I move down to a 0.5? I write very small, and feel that the 0.7 is too big right now.


Edit: Also, what is the difference between a Rotring 600 and 300. I was thinking about picking up both since the 300 is only 12 $.

Holy bovine, I agree. This is my first time on this thread, and that pencil was just love at first sight.

Strange though, going on their website, there's info on the Rotring 300, but nothing on the 600.

Good stuff! I have two of those - one silver and one black. They both are quite a joy to write with.

Dew it! I haven't tried the 300, but 600 is a masterpiece. I have Pentel graphgear 1000 as well, and while pentel isn't too bad, rotring's weight distribution is just right.

For cheap pencils Pentel P205 is awesome - I just have them in bulk in my office and use them.

that's because 300 is current and 600 is discontinued.

Get the 600, but

Don't get this version:



and get this version instead:

I'd say go for the 600 in .5mm, you won't be disappointed.

So the above is what i am thinking about getting. I want to go with the black 600, then i may get the silver 300 or 600 later on.

If i remember correctly, Red, you said that the silver looked more visually appealing. You also have both of these colors. Do you think that you could take a side by side of the two?

sure, I have been meaning to, but I have no digital camera (I'm a film camera person) so I'll need to steal it from my gf. I'll try to take some photos tonight.

Heh, I like my ohto promate. Its basically the same pencil as the 600 with a plastic rubber casing and is circular instead of being hexagonal. The important part, the grip, is still metal and its cheaper then the 600 on ebay.

post #150 of 460
The Promate looks like a mighty fine pencil but another potentially important difference, correct me if im wrong, is that it's made of aluminum and the 600 is solid brass. I haven't read too much about the Promate myself but I've seen reports that their Super Promecha is very grip heavy.
