I purchased these pencils even though I am likeliest to use a pen for my writing activities. So far I am very pleased with the feel of these pencils in my hand and how easy the writing is. The texture of the pencil in ones hand is soft but not mushy like some of the ergonomically enhanced pens I've purchased over the years (and thrown away early on due to a fatigue for having such a thick "contraption" in my hand) It was very nice to not need a pencil sharpener as a first step! I haven't used them long enough to prove out the "2X longer" lasting feature, whatever that might be. Actually I am quite curious as to what it is that makes a pencil last a really long time. A harder lead would last longer-- these don't write/feel like some of the hard lead pencils I've come across over the years because I don't have to work harder or use extra force to make the writing happen. Generally I am pleased with the visual (love green!!!) and tactile experience of these pencils. I say: "Buy some!"

Still not as good as wood!

First of all, I need to admit that I'm a wood pencil advocate (Ticonderoga is still the best). There's still nothing to compare with a genuine cedar wood pencil for feel. Read complete review

First of all, I need to admit that I'm a wood pencil advocate (Ticonderoga is still the best). There's still nothing to compare with a genuine cedar wood pencil for feel.

That being said, these aren't too bad for an extruded pencil. The 70% wood filler accounts for the better stiffness but they still have some of the extruded pencil "flex" that you don't get with wood.

HB#2? Not sure I understand that. The lead is definitely HB, more towards #3 than #2 softness.

The price lead me to give these a try but I don't think I'll try more.

Reliable Pencil

Comments about Staedtler Wopex Pre-Sharpened HB#2 Eco Pencils, 18/Pack:

As I work in the school system, I am always in need of reliable pencils for my classroom. After going through dozens of cheaper brands which sharpen poorly and break easily, I decided to buy a better quality pencil as an investment in my students.
-Writing - Words are neat and legible. The color is a lighter shade than a regular pencil, which for some requires added pressure when writing.
-Feel - This model is heavier than a standard pencil, as it is more dense due to the 30 percent plastic composition. Only one of my student disliked this.
-Sharpening - I recommend sharpening the Wopex in a hand cranked sharpener, as it can have "issues" in an electric model.
-Eraser - Most found that the non-latex eraser made erasing easier and clearer, but for those who press heavily, it was not as effective as a traditional rubber end.
-Color - The bright green is distinctive and in vogue with the current environmental trend. Moreover, it lessens the likelihood of someone stealing it.
-Origin - My students were fascinated that the Wopex is "Made in Germany" and actually treated them with added care because of it.
Overall, my students and I were satisfied with this pencil. It will actually reduce my overall expenses for the year, as students are less likely to lose them.

Comments about Staedtler Wopex Pre-Sharpened HB#2 Eco Pencils, 18/Pack:

This pencil has an great grip. It allows for a clear and neat penmanship. The lead smudges at the beginning when using the pencil but does produce neat work at the end.

The eraser does not remove the wrting in its entirely. School children may not enjoy the eraser because it does not erase the entire word. I have seen school kids rip the paper because they are trying to erase a word or words to the pont where its invisible.
