1.) Did I skip the point where someone mentioned they are ROUND?
2.) They are very soft. Good for LR, great for RC, not so good for LG. With RC, by the time I am done with the questions, the tip is PERFECT for bubbling. This works well for LR too, then. But the fat bubbling tip annoys me to no end with LG.
3.) Not a huge fan of the eraser, as it does not seem to erase.
I've also been using the Kum longpoint sharpener, and that gets a little bit of a better review EXCEPT lead has gotten stuck in it three times. Sharpening during the test is TTT, but does anyone thing the proctors would get mad if I bring a toothpick to fish out the lead during break just in case???
I should get my paycheck tomorrow so I'm ordering some Palomino Graphites and...some 602s. Super saver shipping, so expect another review in like three weeks.
Finally someone who doesn't buy into the Mirado Warrior nonsense. Just save yourself some time and go with Ticonderoga. People love to hate the guy in first place.
Well, I'm still going to try some Palomino Graphites. I was using my sister's regular ticos from the SAT, and I have to say like half of hers the lead was broken on the inside.
I also wanted to update that the KUM Longpoint sharpener is OFFICIALLY TTTTTTT for me. I swear to God lead gets stuck in that damn thing like every other pencil I sharpen, and the holder isn't large enough to hold any shavings, so I have to empty it out with each pencil.
