I recently got the rotring 300 2.0mm leadholder at a bookstore. (That's the only way to get a good pencil around here.). It is my first leadholder. To start off, I like the looks. The simplicity that looks great. The pocket clip is really excellent. The nice shine and usability make a great combination. I also like the idea of the lead pointer in the cap, but it often jams. Sandpaper is better anyway. The knurled grip, combined with the top-heavy feeling make for a great feel in hand. There is a lead indicator at top, running from 4H to 2B, without 3H. I picked up a pack of rotring leads with it, but they are for another day.
