Do not buy this

This is a terrible product. I would not purchase this product again, it is a complete waste of money.
The "liquid graphite" has terrible flow causing the writing to be very inconsistent. The eraser will only work if you erase the mark immediately.
Save your money, buy a Pentel Twist Erase if you want a similar feel but a good writing instrument.

Skips like a pen

Not impressed. It writes like a pen and skips like a pen. It does not write as smooth and clear as a gel. Not much better than the erasable ink pens of years gone by. Like the barrel color. I will try it a little longer but will probably go back to the graphite pencil for clearer numbers and no partial blank spots (skips) in numbers.

No broken leads ever

Pros: affordable
Cons: none
If you are a person who frequently breaks your pencil leads, this pencil is for you. It writes like a ballpoint, but erases like a pencil. The barrel is balanced and very pleasing to write with. Highly recommend!
