I tend to be a skeptic and wondered how this pencil would really work. I was perfectly happy with another pencil , but my curiosity got the best of me and so I ordered this as well as one in the 0.3 size.

I like a softer lead and was continually having to turn my pencil to get a good, clean, edge, so I thought that if this worked it would be great! Much to surprise this really does work, and it works well. No more turning the pencil to find a sharp edge. !

The pencil itself it very lightweight - which is not a bad thing. The grip is shaped/ridged, although it does not show up well in images - your fingers don't slip on smooth plastic. A cushioned grip would be wonderful, but it would not/will not effect my surprised delight in using this pencil.

This package deal is really excellent! This pencil may have spoiled me because using another pencil that does not maintain it's point would be difficult now!

Kind of a 4.5 - the grip is odd, but useable, I may try a High Grade one. But as for the pencil itself, and the mechanism? Like another reviewer, I find I'm not using anything else. I tend to have a heavy hand when writing, especially in pencil - like I expect it to be BLACK like a pen, darn it. :) But I was doing a large amount of writing in pencil last week, scheduling, and two days in, I realized I hadn't broken the lead, not once. It may possibly be a higher-quality lead than I normally have, but I don't think that's all of it, if any at all. Pleasantly surprised that the mechanism isn't a gimmick.

You get lead! This pencil...
November 20, 2010
You get lead! This pencil is just the best. Its light and I think just the right thickness. When I draw, thats the exact opposite of what I want but when I'm taking notes, it's just so nice. I think I would get angry and stop focusing if I went back to a normal pencil. Everything about this pencil feels great. Even the knock. The only thing that I'm not fond of is how there is a little suspension, less than a millimeter, but it is necessary for the turning mechanism so get used to it. There's no reason not to get spoiled by this pencil. Just buy it now.

This is a great lead pencils that suits my everyday needs. It is perfect for taking notes and the lead that came with it never broke once. The rotating mechanism works as advertised. This is my new favorite lead pencil and i highly recomend you get one to.

I have been using this pen for 3 days and the lead hasn't broken once! An amazing improvement from my old mechanical pencils.

I'm glad I went with this starter set instead of dropping $11 on a better version like I wanted. Overall, I think I expected too much out of this pencil. It writes well, it has a nice feel in hand, but the rotating mechanism just isn't as impressive as I wanted it to be. Maybe it's the angle I write at, but it seems like my lead is... the same as it's been. If I wrote at a more extreme angle or the lead was 0.9mm, I feel like I would notice more, but because I don't, the lead seems more u shaped then v shaped like I expected, if that makes sense- soft and round, not a constant point.

As a mechanical pencil this is fabulous! Haven't had too much time to play with it as pencils are boring (all that grey...) and I tend to use them mostly for math classes and such, but from what I've seen the hype is true!
Absolutely recommend!

Pencil writes smoothly and erases easily; perfect for use with a paper calendar when dates are often added, then deleted.
