|These Papermate Aspire 0.5mm Mechanical Pencils feature a Unique contoured design with a stylish over-molded grip for comfort. They also feature a large white vinyl white eraser for clean erasing and a shock absorver tip that reduces lead breakage.|
I love these pencils. I've now ordered three boxes for my office and everyone else loves them, too. They're very comfortable to use. I've not actually heard any complaints (except one lady has a hard time replacing the leads.)
The pencils work great and the price was right.
Got these mainly because of the competitive pricing. Very easy to hold and write with. The thin lead is a plus. I think the eraser could be of better quality though.
I love quality mechanical pencils. These have been 98% perfect because the: * shape is comfortable * weight is just right (not top heavy like the PhD and other more expensive pencils) * finger grip strikes the perfect balance of smoothness and grip-iness * action is smooth and lead doesn't break * eraser is effective and exposed (no caps to deal with) * price is such that losing one isn't a big deal. My only concern is that the eraser isn't quite sticky/tight enough for me to be able to keep the pencil in my purse, and I hate it when the eraser and all the lead falls out. It's not loose - just not quite tight enough for a loose environment.
The BEST Pencil5/18/2011
This is the most comfortable pencil I have ever held in my hands. Perfect weight (not too light, not too heavy). And at that price, who can argue.
Great Pencils, great price.4/4/2011
Like the larger size barrel and the shock absorber tip really reduces lead breakage.
