It's heavy, which personally I like, but the weight is concentrated at the tip. I'd prefer it to be a little more evenly distributed.
The knurled grip is too subtle, so there's not a lot of "grippiness" there.
The adjustable lead guide pipe is an interesting feature but it only feels locked in at full extension. At intermediate lengths it feels like it could slip while writing.
And the last annoying thing is the eraser cap/lead grade indicator. I prefer softer leads but the indicator goes only to "B". But I can live with that. What's really bugging me is that the cap does not fit tightly enough. No, I don't think it would ever just fall out on its own, but if you occasionally "fidget" with your writing implements, it wiggles around and that loose feeling is disturbing.
I really like the way this pencil looks—there's a lot going on there—but these annoyances keep it from being #1 in my rotation.
I purchased the 0.3mm model, but found the HB lead furnished with this pencil to produce a heavier line than that of other 0.3mm pencils I own. A change of lead solved the issue easily enough.
The Super Promecha is 5-5/8" long (not including the retractable pipe/lead guide) with enough heft to feel comfortable, but not so heavy as to produce premature fatigue.
The lead-type indicator in the cap was a big selling-point for me, as I usually use H, B or 2B lead ... but never the usual HB.
This feature is the very reason I purchased several Vario pencils (Faber-Castell) when they debuted years ago. Prior to that I'd have to print little labels with the lead-type and tape them to my mechanical pencils.
It's very well balanced, typical of Japanese-designed/made writing instruments (I own at least two dozen, most purchased in Japan, others via Amazon).
Upon picking the pencil up, it just seems to fall right into place and rests comfortably in either hand (I'm ambidextrous).
The knurled metal grip is large enough to allow for comfortable extended periods of writing.
While the instruction leaflet included with the Super Promecha is indeed written only in Japanese, I had no trouble following the diagrams and was able to set-up the pencil to my personal preferences in a matter of minutes.
A plastic (rather flimsy) carrying sleeve is also included.
Prior to receiving this pencil, I favoured my Uni Kuru Toga (High grade) & Faber-Castell Vario...
However, the Ohto Super Promecha has become my everyday go-to mechanical pencil.
I have already placed an order for another 0.3mm, as well as 0.5 and 0.7mm models.
If you're in need of a precision, well-built/designed mechanical pencil, you won't go wrong with the Ohto Super Promecha (Japanese import).
