Style Name: Box x 12Size: 0.5mm
According to Bic's blurb for this product, it's a "super intelligent pencil" (an extraordinary claim that is attended by many an exclamation mark). So... is it capable of calculating prime numbers? Can I use it to navigate hitherto uncharted backwaters of the mighty Limpopo? Has it discovered the Higgs Boson, perchance? Does it shoot out deadly laser beams so that I can use it in hand-to-claw combat with the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindbogglingly stupid creature that believes that if you can't see it, it can't see you. Very stupid, but also very very ravenous)? Apparently not. The reason that Bic feel confident in the mental prowess of this product is that it provides the user with "no less than three ways to advance the lead".

Do they really expect me to be impressed? Three ways to advance the lead? What?? ONLY three ways to advance the lead? It sounds to me like nothing less than a profound lack of ambition. It sounds to me like the lads (and lasses, of course) in the R&D Dept at Bic Labs got to three and then simply gave up; four ways of advancing the lead being too much of an intellectual stretch I suppose. Or maybe I'm being unfair. Maybe the Head of Research said, during a particularly creative brainstorming session, "Lads! (and lasses, of course) Stop! Stop there! Too much, too fast! Are the public ready for a flute-activated lead advancement system so that you can charm the lead out of the pen as if 'twere a snake? Sweat controlled graphite tip propulsion will shake the world of propelling pencils to it's core - will it ever achieve certification from the Propelling Pencil Control Authority? Psychically activated pencils? Will we ever get the genie back in the bottle?"

Whichever.

These mechanical pencils are great to improve children's handwriting. My children, aged 8 and 6, both use these pencils and find the rubberised grip area a good guide for holding their pencils in the correct way. The fine pencil lead makes their writing neater and they soon get used to only lightly leaning on the lead so that it doesn't snap. A sturdy pencil with good grip, good for children and adults alike. Highly recommended.

Style Name: Box x 12Size: 0.7mm Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These pencils are great...however, they're not revolutionary. BIC make lots of claims about how amazing and super intelligent they are, but at the end of the day they are simply mechanical pencils, (albeit quite nice ones). They have some clever features such as a rubber grip which does make them very comfortable to use. The eraser is also pretty cute - it's neatly hidden away until you need it so that it stays clean. As for the 3 different methods of advancing the lead? Well, I gave them all a go, and to be honest I find that the tried and tested click-to-advance method works best for me. Advancing the lead by shaking was ok, but I found that it was a little hit and miss. The auto advancing I didn't quite get to be honest - probably just me being a little dense!

Overall these are really comfortable and easy to write with pencils. They look good, are fairly substantial and it's great that they're refillable to reduce waste. I would recommend them...but just don't go getting too excited before they turn up as you may wind up a little disappointed!

Style Name: Box x 12Size: 0.7mm Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have been using these pencils for a few weeks now and I have to say that they are good pencils. There is a comfortable grip and they are nice to hold. Perhaps I am too impatient or too hashy-bashy but I haven't been able to get the automatic lead feature to work, although this is likely to be my fault as I am too trigger happy and keep pushing the lead myself!! One thing I do like is that the rubber is protected under a metal cap, so it keeps clean and out of the way.

I can't say this pencil is any more revolutionary than the other mechanical pencils that I have and I see there is an RRP of £40 which I certainly would not say they are worth that - they are good, but not that good! I think a lot of the exciting features of these pencils are marketing hype and lingo to make it sound more impressive than they actually are. They are nice, comfortable to use pencils and at the end of the day I would say they are 3/5.

Hard to get excited about a pencil you would think however this beauty has revolutionised my view of the humble pencil. No longer do I have to contend with breaking points and messy pencil shavings. The point stays sharp and when it gets low I simply press the top and immediately I have a new bit!

It feels like a pen but writes beautifully and the built in eraser is cleverly designed so it is kept clean when not in use.

I now use this for all my studies and notes, fantastic. Even when done, I have 11 more to enjoy!
