Wired has a post suggesting some mechanical pencils as tools of choice along with pros and cons for each. We don't find any of them interesting. Seems like they were interested in showing some pencils that are good-looking. Our mechanical pencil of choice is the P205/207/209. It's lead mechanism is sweet and the barrel may not be sexy but it has a great feel in the hand. Is it your fav. If not point us to something you think is outstanding that we should try.
