First, I'll get my only quibble out of the way. Another reviewer mentioned it and it was true in my case. The manufacturer's packaging was poorly handled. They appeared to apply glue over the entire surface of the card to hold the plastic bubble in place. The glue stuck to the barrel of the pen, so that when I opened the package, the card backing stuck to the pen, leaving behind glue and paper on the blue plastic barrel. Fortunately, this cleaned up easily with a tiny bit of water, a paper towel and your fingernail.

Other than that, this pen is close to perfect for me. It's clean lines and professional appearance make it appropriate for business meetings. It has great balance and is just the right diameter. I like the triangular cross-section, though I know some people don't. The extra long extendable eraser does a clean job erasing with minimal debris. Official Staedtler eraser refills are hard to find, but I learned that you can use the Paper Mate Tuff Stuff eraser stick refills (these are the long and thin erasers about 3.8mm in diameter). The diameter fits the 760 and the eraser seems to be made of the same material as the original eraser (all made in Japan, BTW). Just cut the refill to the length you need.

As for the mechanism, it feeds just enough lead per click so that my .5mm 3B lead doesn't break (I've had other pencils feed just a tad too much lead per click to work well with softer leads like 2B and 3B). The retractable point also has a feature not mentioned in Amazon's description: It automatically feeds a tiny bit of lead when you've worn the lead down to the tip of the metal point. This allows you to continue writing without clicking the pencil top. Granted, writing with the auto-feed is a bit scratchier, but it gives you a chance to finish a word or sentence before you need to click the top of the pencil.

Apparently, not many people are buying this, if the number of reviews are indicative. After trying over 30 different brands, this one is the best. The 760 has a fantastic, smooth triangular grip that should be copied - very comfortable for hours. The best grip of all writing instruments. Notice how your fingers form a triangle when gripping a writing instrument - thank you, Staedtler. Also; The 760 is front heavy, which makes it more comfortable, as the front weight tends to stabilize the pencil, and keep it from shifting (back end tends to not move, or fall back into web of hand). Strong metal clip. Eraser is small (for those who erase a lot, this is a problem), but it twists up for about an inch. No problems with lead, or tip breakage, probably due to the impact absorbing retractable tip (I tend to press hard and break lead). Nice looking - dark blue section is metal flake.
One reviewer said it has auto lead advance. It is not advertised as having this feature, and the one received does not auto advance. One reviewer was very upset about the glue stuck to the pencil; annoying, but It removes easily with rubbing alcohol.
Oh! Incidentally; when taking the 760 apart , the black and blue sections should not be untwisted. The two sections pull straight apart, (may feel initially as if it requires more force than it should) but please don't twist or the plastic will crack. The eraser section also pulls straight out, (may initially feel as if it requires more force than it should) and the lead can be loaded after the eraser section is removed, or by separating the black and blue section.
One reviewer mentioned the Papermate Tuff Stuff eraser pen eraser is the same size as the 760 eraser - this is correct (I took the 760 eraser out and inserted the Tuff Stuff eraser, and it fit exactly the same).
Anyway...it seems underappreciated.

I have been using Staedtler mechanical pencils since I went to engineering school in the 1970s. They are excellent. This one is thick so it feels comfortable in your hand and has a nice rubbery grip. It looks smart in the deep blue. I like to use the soft dark 2B 0.5 mm lead so my words stand out on the page.

First thing I noticed was the pencil had been glued to the card; a few minutes' scraping with my thumbnail took care of that with no damage to the pencil's finish.

Next thing I noticed was they'd included a paltry TWO sticks of lead with the pencil. No comment.

The eraser was a bit of a surprise; I typically expect to see some minute scrap of white material intended for emergency use only. What I found was about an inch and a half long. Very nice.

Loading more lead was another surprise. I had a bit of a struggle to remove the deep eraser mechanism. And I needed a flashlight to be able to see down inside the pencil to locate the lead storage chamber; the opening is waaaay down there, and loading lead is not easy in typical room light.

The pencil is certainly attractive, though it'll never be mistaken for a $60 Cross. It's also very comfortable to hold and to write with, having a triangular profile and a rubberized grip.

The Staedtler Graphite is roughly on par with the Pentel Twist Erase III, though certainly more attractive. Functionally they are the same, though the eraser in the Pentel is much more substantial, and loading lead into the Pentel is far easier. The Twist Erase III is also about 1/3 the price of the Staedtler Graphite. I like the Staedtler very much, but I'm not going to retire any of my Pentel Twist Erase III because of it.
