4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising Comfort and Quality, 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pentel Fiesta 0.5mm Automatic Pencil - Blue Barrel (Pack of 12) (Office Product)
My comments should be understood in the context of comparing Pentel to Pentel, not to other to other low-end mechanical pencils.

Compared to any other brand, these pencils are far superior in comfort of use. Therefore, the following refers only to comparison with other brands.

The price for quality is remarkable. No, there is no cushioning, but that can't be expected in this sort of purchase. However, they are remarkably comfortable. The ridges don't dig into my fingers any more than a smooth-barrelled pencil, yet they do hold it in place in my hand. The eraser is larger than usual, as claimed, though no larger than Pentel's usual larger size. The action to push the lead out is smooth and easy.

At this early stage, it isn't possible to comment on longevity, but at the price, none was expected. However, they do have the feel of ones that will last awhile, which is, in my experience, unusual. Sad to think of this sort of product as disposable, but they usually seem to be. As Pentel fan- not for longevity, obviously, but experience in using them - these feel like they'll last at least as long as any I've had before, and probably longer.
