    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.

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

    These pencils are wonderful for younger kids. They are triangular shaped so they are easier to hold and the lead is thicker so it doesn't break as easy.

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

          The papermate Mates Mechanical Pencil Starter Set is great for all purpose of drawing. The starter set comes with leads refill which is ideal for test taking students who do not have time to search for leads in case of running out leads. I do not worry about replacement now. Large, smudge resistant eraser also reduces time and prevents errors from smudge eraser which I make many times in any exam. The best of all is that I do not need to do sharpening in any exam and the price of the set is right for me.
