I really loved these things when I had them years ago. You could even still get them at an art supply store in town as a few years ago.
Back in 1979 or 1980, these pens came in a different style. If I remember correctly, the pen casing was more like a fountain pen. The cap was longer. It was really a nice design. Then a year or so later, the pen changed to the style you illustrate on your page.
Thanks for the reminiscence!
Hi, I work for rotring and saw your post! not sure if you are happy its defunct or not, but for info, isograph technical pens are still available!

hi nicholas, mine was actually just an ironic title. I spent so many painful hours using those pens that I’m glad that computers eventually replaced them. But they were really good products in the end :)
