Size: 2 PencilsItem Package Quantity: 1
A friend let me borrow one of these pencils one day at school, and I absolutely fell in love with it. The grip is comfortable, but not too soft that it is hard to write. Papermate makes a .7 and .5 model of these pencils, and depending on your writing styles, they work differently to your advantage. I personally prefer the .5mm because I don't like my handwriting to be thick, but the .7 lead lasts longer and is more durable. The eraser lasts very long, and when you do run out (which takes a couple months), the pack comes with an extra. The starter pack comes with lead, but it is only about 12 pieces, so normally, when I buy a new pack of pencils, I also buy a 3 pack of lead. I burn through lead quite quickly, and 12 pieces only lasts about 2 weeks of school, so buying extra lead is very helpful.

My only problem with these pencils is, that when you load lead into these pencils, you have to take the top off, which isn't a big deal, but for every time you load the pencil, it wears out what holds the top, and after a couple of months, it doesn't hold the top, so when you go to erase, the top falls off. This is my only issue, and it is very minor compared to all the pro's of this pencil.

Overall, these are amazing pencils, and I can't use any other pencil. My mom tries to buy me the cheap bulk pack of mechanical pencils, and I won't use them! She has to buy me these!! =D

I am in middle school and this is my daddy's account; this is the only pencil I use because I love the grip the look and the size of the barrel some people have problems with the top starting to fall out when you go to erase that is not because of replacing the leads it is because of erasing I found this out with my first starter kit, I used ones eraser and the cap started falling out. But with the other that came after that I used a pentel click eraser and found that they are a great pair. I started this school year with a fresh pencil and click eraser and now it is 3rd quarter and I have had no problems it still looks brand new. These are very high quality pencils and I absolutely love them. I hope you find this review helpful!

I like the concept of these more than I like the actual pencils. You can see how many leads are left! You can twist out more eraser when you need it! The lead-advance button is on the side of the pencil, so you can easily use it while writing, and unlike the end-push ones you can't accidentally click out more lead while erasing!

So I got two of them -- different colors, at different times, so probably not the same batch. And yet they've both had the same problems.
* The clip piece broke off of each one, which I've not had happen with any other mechanical pencils.
* As others reported, the attachment for the eraser end of the pencil isn't very well designed, and after only maybe two lead reloads they've occasionally fallen out on both of my pencils. This is doubly annoying because even if you can find it and put it back in place, it's also the cap for the lead compartment so you've almost certainly lost any extra leads you had in the pencil.
* Also, when I erase, the eraser often retracts: it's a simple twist mechanism, so the back-and-forth motion and mild pressure of simple erasing is enough to twist it back in, unless you get the angle just right.

The grip is nice, the erasers are good, the pencils feel good in the hand and to write with, and the lead (.5mm, for mine) doesn't break much at all. There are some nice functionality and design innovations here. If Paper Mate fixes the design flaws, I'll happily buy this kind again and probably forevermore. I'm looking for a different model now, though, because I've already lost the eraser end from one of mine, and as the other also falls off, I'm sure it, too, will vanish permanently sooner or later (though I'll try a review commenter's wrap suggestion).

My son found one of these on the street and we both fell in love with it. Had to buy more so we each would have our own and actually bought 2 starter sets which comes with 2 pencils and extra lead and erasers. Comfortable grip - a bit larger than most mech pencils, which is nice for my old joints. Writes well and seems to be pretty durable.

My daughter loves this pencil. Every school year, when we go to staples to buy school supplies, she always makes me buy at least 1 or 2 packs. The problem? It was more than $7 for one pack! Another one is that these pencils are just a little bi too good. My daughter's classmates also love these pencils and they tend to either steal it or 'borrow' it. One girl, she asked my daughter for the pencil, so she gave it to her to use for that one class period. Well the day ended, and the girl left with out returning it. On Monday morning (it was a Friday when this happened)my daughter asked the girl for the pencil back when she saw her using it but the girl said, "This is mine, you never lent a pencil to me!" My daughter was devastated because of the expensiveness of the pencil and that it was her favorite one. But now, it's only $4 for a pack, and I can afford it more now. So this is truly the best deal I've seen. My daughter was so happy when she found this.
