Questions & Answers

The four pencils shown are they of different colors or are they black in color?

You'll need lead black to do this. Colored pencils are not acceptable

Did anything good come out of using Velocity pencils for scantron tests? A recent hand surgery has made me much more inclined to use these pencils over a #2 wood pencil. ?

I hope you will be feeling better soon.

Can you tell me what to do if I only received 3 pencils in my order?

Send an email or call Amazon with your request so they can send you one. If they don't, you will have to return it and get a new one It is orderly.

We have been told we should pull the eraser out to insert new pencil leads but pulling out the eraser seems to be very challenging. Is there any advice you can give?

The eraser can become too small for a fingernail to grip when it gets too small. So, I use a medium sized safety pin. You can use any needle that is strong enough to do the job. The needle needs to be pushed through the eraser at an angle, and it should be wiggled

In the image online, there are 3 long erasers. We were looking for pencils that would accept the longer erasers. In the package we received today, there are There's an image of Amazon on this page. As you can see, online image of this package has been out of date also, the back of this package is different than what we received when compared to the image online. Note that the online image and the package we received have the same item number (41171) at the top left corner.

Pencils of good quality at a budget price
3/5

This is a budget-quality pencil for a budget price. I find the writing to be fine, and the dark, smooth lines are accurate. The plastic case looks cheap, but I have been satisfied with it There's no way to extend the life of the little eraser, and the plastic cover over the eraser is a pain The Twist-Erase mechanical pencils from Pentel are much better, but they are more expensive.

We were pleasantly surprised with the BIC Velocity Mechanical Pencils! In short, nbsp It is a pleasure to see my teens enjoying BIC Velocity Mechanical pencils
5/5

Before school starts, I will be updating my review after I have had some extra time to use them throughout the summer. In the summer, my daughter who happens to be very particular has been using them continuously as she completes her coursework in Advanced Summer English. Her study methods include using the BIC Velocity Mechanical Pencils to make note cards for each subject for which she needs to prepare. She also uses the pencils to prepare for the upcoming Spanish exam and for her drivers license test. It has become extremely helpful for her to be on task due to their encouragement. I've had to deal with occupational issues and fine motor skill issues with my son for the majority of his life. He has had trouble with handwriting and tends to be frustrated more than excited. The pencils he has been using are absolutely delightful and he loves using them to practice his writing. In addition to writing short stories at home about entertaining things we've done over the summer, he has been reading and playing games online. In addition to Occupational Therapy, he has used them for a while. Their choice of vibrant colors excites them, as well as the finer lead, which is perfect for making their writing I particularly appreciate this for my son, who has a hard time writing by hand. In addition, my son and daughter are especially pleased with the soft grip, as it makes the grip more comfortable. Refilling lead and erasers is easier than ever, and you don't need to sharpen your pencil anymore. We couldn't have survived without the BIC Velocity Mechanical pencils for a long time! Using these pencils has helped keep my kids away from their electronic devices and got them back into school ahead of schedule. My husband and I have also been using these pencils, and we are just as excited as my children. The are an amazing tool for learning that can be used by students of a variety of ages! In addition to engaging children - of all ages - in writing, educational games can also spark passion for the written word. As an educational tool, these would be good for a classroom learning environment, but they would also be good tools for teaching kids how to improve As a family, we believe the BIC Velocity Mechanical pencils are above and beyond the average mechanical pencil, and we urge you to try them this year during the school year. BIC, thanks for your help!.

This is good
5/5

Just like if you was going to buy it in a store, it came brand new in original packaging. It's nice that these mechanical pencils are decent quality, but not too costly so that you would be unhappy if you lost them. A secure lead does not wiggle around and stays firmly in place. I like that this package includes an extra lead and eraser, as well as a white eraser that works well and doesn't wear itself out very fast. One thing, I like my pencil lead to be sharp, and I like my lines to be precise. Writing with this pencil looks a little dull, unless you rotate it a lot. Nonetheless, smaller size leads are available for that purpose, so whether you choose to use that or not is just a matter of.

Those who hold refillable pencils say they are comfortable to hold
5/5

It is a set of 4 mechanical pencils that can be refilled with zero leads. There's no downside to using a 7mm lead, as it's a medium point and can be used for most uses. In addition, it is #2 HB lead, so it is equivalent to a wooden #2 pencil and can be used to conduct the bubble test required for a #2 pencil. HB stands for "Hard Black" and refers to the pencil lead that is hard and the pencil mark that Harder pencil leads are harder to sharpen, whilst softer and lighter pencil leads are softer to work with. The given zero is the only one of its kind Regardless of how it is evaluated, 7 can be considered medium and utilitarian. There is a wide range of colors available, as well as pencils designed for children. In contrast to ballpoint pens, most mechanical pencils do not retract their leads (they do not retract like a ballpoint pen does). I think it is also a good thing that it comes with five extra erasers, since they are rather odd-shaped. I have other mechanical pencils that use an eraser that I thought was a standard size 1/4 inch diameter. I do not know why the eraser has a clear cap that slides on and off.

In general, lead is hard to break
5/5

Writing with a mechanical pencil usually breaks the lead fairly quickly since I use a lot of force. There is usually no need to blame the lead itself. Instead, it is the pencil tip that causes the problem. As a result, I have refused to purchase mechanical pencils because it is annoying, wasteful, and prevents the use of perfectly good lead. Because I really liked BIC's products, I decided to give them another try. To that end, I have yet to break the lead and they have a great writing quality. I was pleased with this purchase and I would likely buy more if/when I need them in the future.

The Bic Velocity Mechanical Pencil is an Ideal Way to Write and Draw
5/5

These mechanical pencils are just like regular pencils. It's Amazing how Bic made such a great pen! Having used these mechanical pencils for over a year, I'm still amazed at how well they work. The fact that they are darker than a pencil and that they are refillable when the lead breaks appealed to her. Because the colors are easy to spot in my purse, my daughter also said she put it in her backpack, a great find since kids lose so many ordinary Rather than having to buy her a pencil sharpener for her pencil box and losing allot of them as well, it includes a refill package with lead, and it stores the lead in the pencil itself so when your lead runs out you can refill it right away. In my opinion, these are the best things that Bic has brought out this year, we will be switching from regular pencils to these. It was my pleasure to try the product for free thanks to BIC, and here is my honest review.
