rOtring Rapid Pro

The rOtring Rapid Pro is a very nice rOtring pencil, costing roughly 30-35 dollars and is possibly nicer than the 600. I would call it the rOring 700 if I could number it. The rapid pro is a hexagonal barreled pencil. Unlike the 600, the edges of the barrel curve in, having a much nicer feeling than the sharp ridges on the 600. With one big click of the button, the lead holder comes out and the lead comes along. The rOtring 600 and 800 both have grips with small triangular prisms lining the grip. The rapid pro has much smaller prisms, so small that they almost feel like a razor. (Not in a bad way.) The rapid pro has incredible weight, so the pencil does not shake in your hands. There’s not much more to say except the star rating. So I give this pencil 4.75 stars. It is really close to five, but the grip is a little questionable. Overall, this was a nice addition to my collection and a recommendation to all of the mechanical pencil lovers out there reading this blog right now.
