As with all such pencils, your problems often start when you buy replacement leads (cheap ones snap a lot, or are not quite the correct diameter and dont feed properly) or your eraser is worn down. In my experience it really then pays to buy genuine replacements (or your mechanical experience becomes tainted).
Where this package comes into its own is that you get these genuine replacements up front - so you have them when you need them and the overall price is good value.
I doubt it will convert dedicated users of Tikky's and other more substantial feeling devices, but its a worthy upgrade / dip into the mechanical pencil world for anyone else.
I only wish Uni Ball did different colours for the lead which were also erasable but I'm very pleased with this. It hasn't snapped on me once and I use one for drawing and the other for writing. This was a great value purchase. I'm sure they'd make great gifts too. Although, the lead comes up a light grey colour and isn't very dark - so if that will bother you, keep it in mind.
The pencil itself feels amazing to write with, I'm sure this has to do with the engine inside that rotates the lead as it comes into contact with paper, but it is also very comfortable to hold and is just the right weight.
I went ahead and bought this bundle as I knew I would need replacement lead and erasers, and I use the additional pencil to study at my desk so I can always have one in my bag when I'm out.
Each pencil comes with 2 leads inside, one loose and one already locked into the tip of the pencil. They are the same nano diamond leads you get in the extra two packs. Which are amazingly durable and the quality of each lead is fantastic. I'd recommend not putting any more than 3 leads max into the pencil at a time or you risk breaking them.
I didn't notice such a sharp edge on the lead as it rotated like shown in the images, however this didn't really matter as the pencil always stayed sharp regardless as the engine worked its magic. So even if it doesn't look to be working, just know it definitely does. (you can even look for the logo rotating inside as it moves)
The erasers are a little softer than I would have liked, but for me this only became as issue as the eraser neared it's end and began to flake much more, thankfully this bundle comes with 5 replacements.
- Comfortable to hold
- Always sharp
- Great build quality
- Very well designed
- Durable lead
- Competitive bundle price
- Eraser hidden underneath clicker cover
- Come in a variety of colours (see other bundles)
- Erasers can be a little too soft
- Arrived in well protected bubble wrapped bag, would have liked retail packaging. (this seems to vary from seller to seller)
This is a definite grab at such a good price, two great quality mechanical pencils engineered by Mitsubishi, with replacement leads and erasers for around £10. I don't think I'll need to replace these for a long time.
