I am in high school and have a school bookstore, which is how I happened upon these pencils. I love using them. I bought five at the beginning of the school year and am still using them now, in February. I use the pencil to take notes in all my classes, which requires a lot of writing, and to take tests, so the pencil's lead capacity is solid. One of the best qualities of this pencil is that the grip is EXTREMELY comfortable, made out of some sort of squishy plastic material. My only critique of this pencil is that when erasing, it does smudge a bit. However, this eraser works quite well and usually can correct the problem. Overall a great pencil for students who need to take notes or anyone who needs a long-lasting, durable, comfy pencil to use! :-)

I liked that it was inexpensive and came with extra lead and it looks nice. That is why it is not worth my time to return it. It looks nice and works ok except the little shroud tip that fits into the tip fell out and I will likely lose it sometime. This makes the tip weaker and unstable. Go ahead and pay a little more and see if the quality improves.

Erasers fall out, lead lost too easily

    Comments about Paper Mate® Comfortmate® Ultra Starter Set Mechanical Pencils, .5mm, 2/Pack:

    Every pencil I purchased, the eraser is loose, and easily falls out. If the pencil doesn't remain upright, the lead falls out.

    I will not buy this pencil again.

    Comments about Paper Mate® Comfortmate® Ultra Starter Set Mechanical Pencils, .5mm, 2/Pack:

    The pencils work great and come with extra erasers and lead which is great in itself since you can't always find .05 lead for these types of pencils

    Great Mechanical pencil

    Comments about Paper Mate® Comfortmate® Ultra Starter Set Mechanical Pencils, .5mm, 2/Pack:

    I like the ergonomic, soft grip. Much more comfortable than a straight plastic mechanical pencil. Also a great price.

    Comments about Paper Mate® Comfortmate® Ultra Starter Set Mechanical Pencils, .5mm, 2/Pack:

    These mechanical pencils are very comfortable to hold and write with. The eraser is quite good also. It does not 'blacken' like many other lesser quality mechanical pencils.
