I've been using Pipettes like this for years - 1 ml, 2 ml, 5 ml, 10 ml. Once you get used to reading them 'backwards', they're a snap. Don't worry about the 'extra room' at the tip. Precision is more important than accuracy. Or do I have that backwards? At any rate, it doesn't matter if it's off as long as it's always off by the same amount, which it is.
