First, I would like to...

First, I would like to thank 'todavecave' for his extensive review. I recently
decided to give Boxy a try after using the Mars Plastic line by Staedtler (both
the block and pen style erasers) for quite some time. I was a bit worried that
since Boxy was black that it would leave a black residue on the paper. I was
quite surprised. I have been much more satisfied with Boxy than with the Mars
Plastic erasers. Boxy seems to clump better and generally erase much better,
most of the time leaving no 'graphite shadow' behind at all. I strongly
recommend Boxy (I just ordered 5).
I don't know why the previous reviewer had an issue with Boxy after switching to
H grade lead. I use H grade lead pretty much exclusively and achieved the
results I described above. 'Todavecave' also used H grade lead in his extensive
review. I have a feeling it might have something to do with the paper the other
reviewer is using. I typically use 70g to 90g paper.
I recommend Boxy over the Mars Plastic eraser line.
