5/5 in concept, 3/5 in...
5/5 in concept, 3/5 in practice...
I take notes in math class with the Uni Jetstream Multi Pen that includes a pencil so in concept, a correction tape/eraser tool is perfect. Unfortunately this item didn't live up to my expectations.
The tape is smooth and corrects quite nicely but sometimes it does not stick to the paper and I have to use my finger to press it down before writing over it. I do give it a 4/5 on strength so I can write over it with slightly less pressure and it does not tear. The replacement is very easy- the case removes easily and it is a matter of popping out and the used up tape holder and placing the new one on top.
The eraser erases quite well however it does not last long; definitely buy replacements when buying this product. The replacement is not easy- I had to pry the eraser out of its holder by using tweezers and I made a mess because it kept cutting up the eraser into little shreds.
Pros: Retractable ends, quality tape, quality eraser, ease of use, nice fit in hand, easy replacement of correction tape, perfect for someone that needs an eraser but will not use it a lot compared to the tape.
Cons: Eraser does not last long, replacement of eraser not easy
I hope Tombow improves this product because it has great potential.

Love that it's all-in-one,...
Love that it's all-in-one, refillable and that everything about it is superior to common American store brand correcting tape and erasers. Every other correcting tape I've had to press down the tape once in a while. So easy to replace the tape. Haven't had to replace the eraser. I don't really use pencil so even if it's a pain like the other reviewer said I'd have to replace so rarely I wouldn't care.
