I've used the Twist-Erase...
April 23, 2015
I've used the Twist-Erase for all my pencil needs since I was 12 or 13. I'm 36
now, so it's been a good mechanical pencil for a long time. This version has the
same nice big eraser and easy to use shape. I'm no longer in school, so I
haven't experimented with exactly how much lead you can stuff in the poor thing,
but the early versions held up fine to all day standardized tests with one
pencil. If you feel paranoid, maybe bring along a packet of spare erasers and a
fresh tube of lead. The only reason to bring a second one to an all day test is
if you aren't positive you've got the hang of starting a new lead under time
These are really good if you're prone to losing separate erasers, because the
eraser is so big and so easy to replace and so good at erasing.
