I use these pencils to take notes during school, but I have to refill them quickly. I tend to press harder when taking tests so these pencils are impractical during test-taking circumstances, as the pencil may run out of lead just when you need it most. The pencil works well for note-taking, because highlighter glides smoothly over the writing and the lead from the pencil won't fade from the page like many competitors will. This pencil is a mixed bag, you just have to decide what YOU personally want out of a pencil.

I ordered it mainly because I needed a color different than black, thinking that if it says assorted, I will get at least one other color. Both pencils came in black. Called and reordered it, it came again in black. [...] At the end, I just gave up hoping to get what I wanted.

Comments about Pentel Twist-Erase® III Automatic Pencils .5mm, Assorted Colors, 2/Pack:

I have been a bookkeeper for over twenty-five years, and these are the only mechanical pencil that lasts and lasts. I just purchased a couple of extras to keep in the office for those times that I temporarily "misplace" the one I have used for so many years that I have lost track of exactly how long I have had the one I currently use. I prefer the .5mm, whereas my assistant prefers the .7mm. Both are extremely dependable, and it is nice that there is more than one option of hardness for the pencil leads. Love the super long lasting eraser at the other end as well.

Best pencil ever!

Comments about Pentel Twist-Erase® III Automatic Pencils .5mm, Assorted Colors, 2/Pack:

I have had one of these pencils for a few years. During that time only the chrome and the painted label has worn off. It still grips the lead when I write and feeds it down perfectly. I tend to press hard when I write, but unlike some other mechanical pencils, the lead doesn't push back in every third letter. It stays put.

I like how it feels like I'm using a metal barrel mechanical pencil even though it's a plastic one. I mean, it doesn't feel like it's going to flex like other plastic mechanical pencils. I can't stand side clickers because the clicker usually ends up on my finger and gets quite uncomfortable. The tip is a needle point and all metal. Not a metal point in a plastic tip.

Oh and the grip! It's fabulous! It's durable, comfortable, not too squishy not too hard, not too sticky or too slick! It's juuuust right! And I mean it's durable. Not some goo grip that disintegrated after 6 months nor a silicone that feels great at first but then get sticky (yuck!). The pencil itself is a bit thicker in diameter so the grip is a good size. The thicker grip keeps my hand from tiring in half an hour of note taking.

I'm not sure how many pieces of lead it hold but it's more than 5. I think I purchased a box of the 15 pcs lead per tube and dump one in at a time. It got annoying that my kuru toga could only hold about 4 pieces before it jammed. Besides the kuru toga gets uncomfortable to hold after about 3 lines of notes in class and I used its erasers in a week. I can't find replacement erasers or uni lead locally. The twisterase has an ERASER (about an inch long and a regular wood pencils diameter) and you can usually find replacements locally.

I was sad when I couldn't find my original and didn't feel like using the .9mm one (yes I have one in .5mm and .9mm. I like them larger lead for scantron exams.) so I went and purchased 2! Unfortunately assorted colors at the time of my purchase meant blue or black. My original is purple! I reasoned blue is half of purple and the .9mm one is black so blue will do!

You pay a little more for this pencil but considering how long my original had lasted before I lost it its worth it.

Upon returning home with my purchase all safely in my shool bag, I did find my purple one, unharmed. It's ok that I have 3 .5mm ones. It means when a classmate asks to borrow a pencil I will be happy knowing they will be comfortable in their writings that class.

Comments about Pentel Twist-Erase® III Automatic Pencils .5mm, Assorted Colors, 2/Pack:

The Pentel Twist-Erase III Automatic Pencil .5mm is the most useful mechanical pencil that I have used. I typically purchase it in black color, as that matches any color shirt. The pencil has a good grip feature and the most desirable feature of a long disappearing eraser. On a number of occasions, I have purchased the pencil as a gift for family members who are still in school. It comes as no surprise when they ask me where they can obtain additional such pencils and whether the product is available in additional lead thicknesses.
