My review title says it all. The Pentel III feels sturdier in general. It is slightly larger in diameter. The rubberized collar on the Pentel III is larger and "beefier" and better fits my hand (large). The Pentel III has a metal pocket clip vs. a plastic clip on this pencil. The Pentel III comes with two replacement erasers.
I think that the Pentel III will hold up better than the Pentel Twist-Erase EXPRESS. I think that it's well worth the extra expense.

I never dreamed that a simple pencil could have such an effect on life. I know this may sound stupid for a simple pencil, but bear with me.

I originally ordered this because I have Parkinson's and had been using .7mm pencils for years but was having a great deal of problems with the leads breaking when I had a spasm. I decided to try this pencil because it had a .9mm lead and I thought that it just MIGHT help with the lead breaking problem so I ordered one. Well, it worked very well for the breakage problem. I haven't broken a lead since I started using this pencil. However, I have discovered other great benefits. The new retracting eraser smooths the whole erasing thing out nicely and makes eraser longevity and changing much less of a problem. The larger soft rubber grip also makes the pencil a LOT easier to hang on to, especially for those with my condition.

One improvement I have learned to make on the grip: The fattest part of the grip, as it comes, is at the top and doesn't add to the ergonomics of holding the pencil much. I have found that if you simply unscrew and remove the bottom of the pencil where the lead comes out, the rubber grip can simply be slipped off, turned around and reinstalled. Now the fat part of the grip is at the bottom and keeps the fingers in a more sure and comfortable position. The way the manufacturer delivers them doesn't make sense in this respect.

However, this pencil is a quantum leap in usability over every other pencil I have ever used and I have since thrown out every other pencil in the house and replaced them with this one.

Thank you Pentel for making a better product to simplify our lives.

These pencils are so well designed. I prefer the .9 mm over any other size, because it is sturdier. The lead will never break or crumble while you're writing. It allows the option to write in calligraphy style penmanship, because the lettering is slightly wider than usual. The built in erasers last quite a while, and they're convenient to use. As far as comfort goes, these pencils are easy on your fingers, even sitting and writing for extended periods of time. I've gone through all kinds of pencils, no expense spared, and these have emerged the victor. This is easily my favorite writing utensil. ;)

For years, I've purchased Bic mechanical pencils, but in recent years, I've noticed they just aren't the same quality they used to be. The parts are all plastic, and in just a short time, they stop "gripping" the lead so that it slips back up into the pencil when you try to write with them. Also, the Bic pencils come with very fragile lead that snaps in two with just the least pressure, and their erasers are small and not replaceable. These Pentel pencils are a much better quality! They have a metal part that grips the lead...no slippage. The eraser is very long and can be replaced when it is used up, and the lead that comes in the pencil is a good quality...you can actually write with it without breakage. The grip is nice, too...very comfortable. The only thing not to love is the fact that when you use the eraser, you have to hold the twisting section that raises and lowers the eraser or it will twist all the way back into the pencil, and you will find yourself rubbing the paper with the plastic surrounding the eraser. Once you know to hold this part, it's fine.

I first used the Pentel Twist Erase pencil 3 years ago as I was searching for a good mechanical pencil with a refillable eraser. I have not used any other since. I loved it for all the reasons other buyers have mentioned--large/long refillable eraser, rubber grip (not perfect but better than nothing), and interchangeable parts in case something breaks. I was hesitant to purchase this one, the "Express XP", since it was not the same item I was used to.

The original, if taken apart would be four pieces (apart from led/eraser). This pencil is only three pieces, since the pocket clip (now a more flexible plastic) is one piece with the upper barrel. BTW, the eraser that fitted the original also fits the Express XP.

I've seen the original pencils sell for $3.00 apiece, but this set was a dozen for much less. So a cheaper and simpler design, construction, and material.

But when it comes to performance, this pencil has a flaw. With every one of these pencils I had, both my wife and I experienced that sometimes the lead would break inside the tip so it would be stuck in the tip. This happened A LOT--if it didn't I wouldn't mention it or feel the need to edit my original review (which was five stars by the way, but the one who uses an item for years is not the same as the one who uses it for a day or two). But when the lead gets stuck, how do you dislodge it? First, unscrew the tip. Now look inside the removed tip and you'll see that there is a piece of lead in there and you should not be able to see through the lead hole. Then you have to take another mechanical pencil of the same width, get the lead to protrude about a centimeter, and then carefully push that lead into the tip from where it normally writes. Eventually the broken lead will fall out.
