Great pencils, but some caveats
These mechanical pencils embody everything that's great about a 2.0 mm lead holder (clutch pencil) but without most of the drawbacks. The leads never break. You get a nice, consistent line, and it's easy to erase. The only caveat is that I have found it difficult to find replacement leads for these pencils, and they're only available in 2B hardness. The erasers on the pencils don't work (I'm not even sure that they're actually erasers, they do such a poor job) so be prepared and have a separate eraser on hand. The pencils come with 1-2 pieces of lead in each pencil, so once you find a source for refill leads, buy several and keep them with you, especially since 3-4 leads fill the pencil completely. Even with all of my complaints, these are among my favorite pencils to use. They lay down a nice thick line, which makes them perfect for filling in the bubbles on standardized tests.
