Style Name: 0.7mmSize: 24-Count Verified Purchase
I was thrilled when I saw this 24-pack of BIC mechanical pencils at such a great price on Amazon. I bought 4 packs. As a teacher of Middle school students, I am constantly lending out pencils to unprepared students who promise to return them, then mysteriously find myself "out of stock" at the end of the week. I have my suspicions that my 13-year old boys are snacking on them, but I can't prove anything.

Seriously, these pencils are great, and my students prefer these, hands down, to regular wooden pencils (sometimes I hand them out as prizes and the kids love receiving them). My gripe with wood pencils is that every two minutes it seems the point is breaking and I have students sharpening pencils all throughout my class period. These pencils eliminate that disruption, because even if the point breaks, which isn't too often, since these particular pencils are a sturdy .7mm point size, with two clicks the students are back to writing.

We recently took our state-wide standardized tests and my school made it mandatory that we use wooden #2 pencils and throughout the entire 2 week testing period when I replaced dozens of pencils with broken points, sighed over greyish smudges on open response questions, and sharpened dozens of pencils daily, I found myself dreaming about using these pencils.

These BIC pencils are top quality; other mechanical pencils jam, or snap, or the erases fall out or leave smudges on the paper, and these pencils don't do any of that. From this teacher's point of view, these are the best mechanical pencils out there.

Update to the original review:

Been using them for years now. Love the performance and affordability, since I lose them so easily. Highly recommended.

Original Review:

If you are investigating these pencils, I suspect you are like the rest of us: you want a pencil that looks decent, performs well, and is inexpensive (because you tend to leave them around the house, in books, at the office, give them away, lose them, etc.). I've found these pencils fit the bill perfectly. I've been using them now for a few weeks, and they write well, erase well, look attractive, and the various colors on the barrel are fun. My one modest complaint is that the see-through plastic barrel can feel a bit insubstantial, slightly bendable. But I have big hands and a strong grip. I haven't broken one yet, though, and this is a very minor complaint. I love good mechanical pencils, and have used very expensive ones to branded disposable ones like these from office supply stores, and I much prefer these. I can use them, and lose them, with impunity. They are, to my mind, the best integration of value: performance, looks, and cost. If you know of any better, please let us know. Highly recommended.

I've used these mechanical pencils off and on for more than a year, and I write rather hard compared to most people. 0.9mm lead is the smallest lead tough enough to withstand the force of my writing without repeated breakage, but there is one downside to these pencils that leads me to only buy them in a pinch.

After some time writing, graphite seems to lubricate the mechanism holding the lead. Trying to write becomes much more difficult. The lead pushes back into the pencil, becoming equally if not more annoying as repeated breakages.

My experience has been the same for more than a year. The pencils start out wonderful, but become very hard to use before half the lead is spent. Lighter writers may not experience the same issues.

It is soo hard to find pencils with a 0.9 mm lead. I HATE 0.7mmm lead because it breaks a lot! These are the best mechanical pencils I have ever had. I have even shared 1/2 of my order with my granddaughter in North Carolina...she is 1q2 years-old also LOVES the lead quality for her search a word puzzles! Thank you for offering them to your customers! Marilyn from Rhode Island

This is another nifty mechanical pencil for our already throw-a-way society. These pencils are ideal for the class room in that they actually work, are indeed shatter resistant, and when they are lost or not returned, and I guarantee that this will happen, you are not out big bucks.

The lead is No.2 and leaves a nice bold mark, bet not so bold that it smears all over the place. It comes with to refill leads which really is not all that important as in a school situation, you will never see the thing again once you loose sight of it; but it is never the less nice to know the lead is there...just in case.

The eraser is quite effective. Keep in mind that this has a top lead advance mechanism, so you do have to stop writing to advance the lead. This does not seem to bother the students all that much though.

These pencils are ideal for math or accounting classes.

They do come in nice colors (the shell), but not so nice that they look "cool," ergo, more are returned than if they were nice shinny things.

I suppose you could sum it up as "cheap and serviceable." In this day and age, what more could you ask for?
