Got my Rotring Black 0.5mm in a previous drop and I must say it is a very nice mechanical pencil though even at the deal price not really worth that much IMO. I think the Zebra M-402 mechanical pencils that got me through college studying electrical engineering were functionally the same and a bit more comfortable to be honest. And they run less than $5 shipped on eBay. That being said, does anyone know what's so special or so much better on the Rotring 800 model that makes it worth double the price of the Rotring 600?

The Rotring 800 has a retractable tip unlike the Rotring 600.

Huh, thats pretty cool if I were traveling with it and worried the tip might get bent. I just wish Massdrop had a deal on a black version of the 800. That brushed silver with shiny gold is terrible looking.
