I am not a fan of Rotrings 600 / 800 and feel that they have been way too overrated here - they they too heavy / the weight balance feels off.
If you want to go high end I'd suggest the Rotring Newtons - the unique grip style is very comfortable to hold. Don't carry a 600 in your pocket, use a nice case.
The knurling is a little strong/sharp. Being a full brass body, the Rotring will be considerably heavier (in a good way, in my opinion). New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast. Heavy. The grip is knurled, not rubberized.
I currently use a GraphGear 1000 and like it quite a bit, but I wanted to try something else for a bit of variety.
However, if general writing is what you're most involved in, I have a hard time recommending the rapid pro over the Lamy. Well, they're pretty different.

We have very similar tastes.

So that probably isn't a good thing. DraftMatic vs Rotring 500, 600, 800 etc.
I'm consider the above mentioned 3 rotring ballpoint pens and I was wondering if anyone could point me to some info or reviews of them. I'm thinking of the rotring 600 on amazon.
It may not be too bad on the 600/800, but I have a RapidPro where the knurling is smaller, making it a bit more rough. A subreddit dedicated to pens!
Haha but I would agree 800.
If you go for .5 lead I recommend the 600 to prevent some of the finicky issues that I've heard of, but .7 is worth getting the 800. Well I definitely recommend the rOtrings.
The Lamy is a great platform, but I love my 800 so much. It's not a better pencil than the Lamy 2000 (again save for drafting) so I feel like any reason to purchase a 600/800 would simply to see what the hypes about, Edit: I didn't realize you own only the fountain pen of the Lamy 2000.
I would say don't get the 800.
DraftMatic vs Rotring 500, 600, 800 etc. I have read that the writing experience is better with the 600 due to the fixed tip and that the retractable tip makes the 800 feel kind of blah. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts.
(...or if someone has ether of them they want to get rid of PM me).
The big question is not whether the Rotring 800 is worth the money - $65 is more than a fair price for this pencil - it’s whether the Rotring 800 justifies a $33 premium over the Rotring 600.
I haven't been able to find much online.

Workhorse. It's kinda like bowling over 200 for me, I love hitting 200 in a game, if I can do it consistent then I'm happy. The grip is knurled, not rubberized. People who have one or both, what are your thoughts?
Get the one that you prefer, not the one that's better or more popular. I dont use pencils a ton as I mostly write with fountain pens, but I just got a Lamy 2000 and really enjoy it, so it got me thinking maybe I should get a higher end pencil. Not so much in the sense that the rapid pro is bad for these purposes but because the Lamy soars so well in this field.
The other point is that people has huge expectations on a 50 usd pencil and do not want to have any tip play/wooble on it.
You should opt for the fine tip Parker Gel, a new refill for the Asian markets that is far superior than Parker's older gels imo. Because of the different materials used to make these pencils, there is a big difference in durability. Ya at the moment I'm leaning towards the Lamy pencil, now I just have to find one. Very well built. I do a lot of writing and I enjoy the G2. The Pentel Graphgear 1000's grip also isn't as knurled as the rOtring 600's.
You can even get a red one to match the red ring. It's kinda like bowling over 200 for me, I love hitting 200 in a game, if I can do it consistent then I'm happy.
I just want a 600. The retractable tip is soo satisfying. I would love to pick up one up second hand but I'm having trouble finding a place to pick up second handle mechanical pencils like r/pen_swap for Fountain Pens. Parker Gel ink is similar to G2, however it definitely has noticeable differences (I think Parker skips a bit more with the standard 0.7mm refills). As far as a writing utensil goes, it's, in my opinion, quite to difficult to knock off the rapid pro/600/800 off its podium. The 800 is not poorly build, infact it is build by the same company (Holbein) of the 600 in Japan.
The ballpoint ink will be significantly worse (less smooth) than the G2 and will lead to more fatigue.
If you want to stick to same form factor the Rotring 500 (esp the older models) is a much better choice. That's not to say it's the best pencil money can buy, but it's certainly one of that has earned its rank. From what I've seen, you can use a Bic Pen cap on a Rotring 600 to make it pocket safe if that helps your decision.
5 comments. The ink is quite different. I might also just pick up a rOtring 600 down the line to see what I think later.
I currently use a GraphGear 1000 and like it quite a bit, but I wanted to try something else for a bit of variety. I don't want a pencil that I'm going to have a lot of problems with.
I've been using my Lamy 2000 for just under 2 months now after switching from a rotring rapid pro (for all intensive purposes, the pencil is similar enough to the 600 for me to give me two cents at the subject). This is a community for pencil enthusiasts. save hide report. It's late here but if you want a more in depth review of what I think of the two pencils, just let me know and I'll write something up in the morning. The Rotring 800 fits my hand better than the more slender 600. You'll be way happier with a 600 and Bic Pen cap than an 800. SOOOO anyone have an opinion on the L2k vs ether of the rOtrings, Can someone direct me to a good place other than eBay to find second hand pencils? The rOtring Rapid Pro is even more expensive so I don't think that's down your alley.
Its the same price as the 500 on jetpens plus shipping.
I've never used "expensive" pens before - a G2 has always been sufficient for me. I like the look of both the 600 and 800, but as a student, I will need to carry it with me all day.
The 500 is lighter overall compared to the Rotring 600 because it has a plastic barrel instead of brass. I like the look of both the 600 and 800, but as a student, I will need to carry it with me all day. Are the Rotring's really worth it?
Rotring 600 vs Rotring 800 Ballpoint Pen Comparison - YouTube Hi everyone - I'm looking to buy myself a gift and I am considering a rotring pen.
The grips are both metal, though, so while the 600 will have a neutral weight distribution, the 500 will be front-heavy. It may not be too bad on the 600/800, but I have a RapidPro where the knurling is smaller, making it a bit more rough. It kinda sucks. Close. So I have been using a Staedtler 925 05 & GraphGear 500 for a while now and like them both. The problem is that the mechanism is very sofisticated and because of that, it is not very reliable. 5. I have both.
