I have tried many different mechanical pencils. This pencil has the best balance of any, and is a joy to write with. The clicker is easy, and the feed mechanism rarely misfires. The eraser is small, but it is a white eraser, so erases cleanly. I recommend these, and the price point is very reasonable. You get a higher quality instrument for the price of a less expensive all plastic model.
I always lose my .5 pencils so i was happy to find a bulk like this. They have a good weight to them and they were great to draw with. So far it hasn't snapped the led. (each pencil was stocked with some led!) The eraser is pretty small but works well.
this is the first product i purchased from overstock that has been truly disappointing. the nib that holds the lead has fallen out of two of the six pencils already. the first pencil fell apart after a couple of days - i tried putting it back together, but it fell apart about once an hour (its like there is nothing holding the nib in the pencil. so i threw it away - thought it was a fluke.
then got out the second one and the same piece fell out if the pencil after about 15 minutes of use. again, i tried to put it back together and about two sentences later the nib fell out again.
these must be seconds, but the description doesn't say that anywhere.
i think this product as well as the other iterations of it (other colors, etc.) are definitely a "buyer beware" purchase.
