With the feel of a pen and the look and performance of a pencil, the Paper Mate Clearpoint Elite Mechanical Pencil is your clear choice. Featuring an innovative lead shield technology that protects against lead breakage, Clearpoint pencils take the frustration out of writing. The wraparound soft comfort grip causes less stress and strain on your hand while the constant supply of lead provided by the extra-large button gives you uninterrupted performance. The mechanical pencils also feature a smooth eraser that makes quick work of mistakes.
I can't believe I am writing a review about a pencil. But I am. This is really a well made, quality mechanical pencil. Feels like a sturdy pen and the lead write as smooth as a pen. I bought this on a fluke, but I am really glad did. I really like it!
They are expensive, but as a full time student who needs pencils, these are worth it. My favorite part is the high quality twist-up eraser. I've had one of these for over a year and the eraser still hasn't run out- and I was taking calculus, so there was plenty of erasing.
