The grey rubber is very hard and not particularly grippy, so whilst the grip looks good, it is only average in actual use.

Is Rotring 600 retractable?

The 600 is the lesser expensive version that does not feature a retractable tip. The Rotring 800 has a retractable tip but I decided to start with the lower priced model and see if I liked the pencil before I considered upgrading to the retractable 800.
