I've been spoiled by good erasers.

I'll be comparing this eraser to the Boxy and the Pilot Foam erasers:

While the description says that this eraser clumps its dust together to make cleanup easy, the Foam does it exceptionally well compared to this. Maybe I wasn't erasing correctly (yes, depending on how you erase, the bits will clump together better or worse), but the clumping wasn't so great. After quite a bit of erasing, I was stuck with fewer bits than the Boxy, which doesn't clump at all, but a lot more than the Foam, which produced one single eraser strip as waste.

Also, this eraser doesn't seem to erase as well with a light touch. The Boxy and the Foam all seemed to absorb the graphite, while this simply produced a would-be piece of eraser hanging off a corner. I found myself straining to erase large art projects with just as many eraser bits as the Black Pearl (regular, American eraser).

The eraser is squishier than the Foam and the Boxy, so it gets my mind off of my work (so maybe it doubles as a stress reliever?). The cardboard does dig into the eraser, but I don't have any problems with the cardboard digging into the eraser and causing it to fall apart as I've read on some reviews of the Foam (a problem I never really had with my Foam, though). I guess the plus to this eraser is that it comes in more varieties and colors to suit your style. But--the logo on the front faded pretty easily after a bit of brisk use.

Bottom line, this eraser is great compared to the regular erasers you find around the US, but if you're going to upgrade your eraser on Jetpens, I would go with the Foam. Not saying this eraser is bad, but the Foam is better at clumping and is easier to handle because of its stiffness. Since they're both the same price for .7oz, why not? But if you want to have a little taste tester with all three, then go ahead. The Matomaru won't disappoint.
