    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.

    Mechanical Pencil

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

    I have used many mechanical pencils and have to say I finally found one that actually writes like a real pencil. The lead is thicker so it does not break as easily as most.

    excellent

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

    The qualityis very good, the lead is very suitable for kids because it does not break due to too much pressure that usually kids make when they want to write. The color of the lead is dark enough so the kids' homework looks very nice and readable unlike other brands that usually have colorless leads. The eraser works very cleanly and does not leave any marks on the paper. The body colors of the pencils are very nice and also the extra eraser and pack of leads are really useful and save you later spendings.

    Papermate Mates Machanical Pencil Starte

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

    These are my favorite lead pencils of all time! The lead is very thick so it doesn't break and writes dark. That are shaped nicely for the younger beginner writer who just wants those lead pencils like their older siblings. I personally love them for myself and I am an adult! By far, one of the best finds in writing instruments I've found in a very long time. They come with two refillable erasers and a pack of refillable lead. Kids and adults both will love this product. This is a winner!!!

    The best pencil ever

    By G. Bassett

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

    This pencil is a teacher's dream ! The thicker lead, 1.3mm does not break easily and lasts longer than a regular pencil or other thinner mechanical pencils. Students spend more time writing or working and less time fussing with refilling the thinner mechanical pencils. Also no more broken pencil sharpeners :-)
    I am in love with this pencil:-)

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

    These mechanical pencils are great. Not only for starters, in my opinion, all ages may enjoy using these pencils. They're wide enough to hold on to with ease, but not too wide to be cumbersome. The thicker lead allows you to see what you've written. And the thicker lead doesn't break if you lean too hard on it. And it doesn't break if you accidentally drop it on the floor. Also, the eraser does the job of erasing mistakes really well. The area of the eraser is wide enough and gives you a good angle to erase without tearing the paper. Grandkids love these as much as I do.
