    I love mechanical pencils for ease of use and the fact that I don't have to get up and sharpen a pencil every time you turn around. I prefer a fatter lead than the 0.5 & 0.7. I usually buy the 0.9 lead, but then I saw the 1.3 and thought I had died and gone to heaven. But then I opened the package and felt the shape of the pencil in my hand and the glide of the lead on the page and WOW! I LOVE IT!! I am hooked. The only thing now is I am struggling to find just the lead. I did find the pack of pencils with the lead, which is great, but next is to find the packs of lead. Thanks for such a great pencil!!

    " Easy Rebate" program is a disaster. First they told me I had incorrect model number on a shreader - wrong ! Then they send a post card saying purchase date was outside rebate period. - wrong !! Then they try to tell me rebate is $ 10 and not $ 30 - Wrong !!! I showed them in writing that they were wrong and they offered a $ 20 in store coupon but I had to buy something else. I returned shredder and I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER ITEM FROM STAPLES. Worst customer service I ever experienced. Cancelled my rewards program and will never step my foot in any Staples store ever again.

    The pencils are great- They have a larger eraser and the barrel is larger making easier to hold.

    These are great pencils. The only thing I wish is that the lead was a more common lead size. Being larger makes the refills harder to finds and pricier.

    Large lead pencil

    By Tim

    from Maryland

    Comments about Paper Mate Papermate Mates Mechanical Pencil Starter Set, Assorted:

    Lead is virtually unbreakable. Almost twice as wide as 0.7mm lead. Obviously not for precise writing, but writes similar to a standard wood pencil.

    Best mechanical pencil.

    Comments about Paper Mate Papermate Mates Mechanical Pencil Starter Set, Assorted:

    I hated mechanical pencils because of the thin, flimsy leads. My first time to use one made my teeth hurt like nails on a chalkboard. Screech Screech... Snick... Click... Click... Then back to Screech... I found the 1.3 lead mechanical pencil at Staples and tried it. WOW. Talk about perfect... but expensive. I didn't care. This was the perfect pencil. Smooth, long lasting and quiet. I kept loosing them to students and supposed friends. Now I get the starter pack and they are fine. Not as nicely balanced as my first one but at least I can get them in store instead of online. I will probably get another nice one online and threaten bodily harm to anyone who touches it and keep the store set out for use. I'm just glad I can get them at Staples.
