    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.

          Great if you write very hard. The lead is very durable. Triangle design is great for hand comfort while writing and does not roll if layed on an uneven surface. Eraser could clean a little better. I have seen worse though.

          I love mechanical pencils but I hate when the lead breaks all the time. These have a thick lead which hasnt disappointed me yet.

          Best mecahincal pencils

          By Eleanor

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

          These are the best mechanical pencils, that I have ever used. The lead does not break and lasts longer than other pieces in lead in other mechanical pencils. The lead also does not smear since it does not have those small breaks. The only small issue is the eraser can fall off when carried in my purse. The eraser works better than other erasers on mechanical pencil. I have given these pencils to many people, since I like them and if they use pencils in their everyday work I have given them one of these to try.

          Great pencils for young children and adults who press down hard and constantly break the tips of mechanical pencils.
