Great product but hard to reload
I've used the Twist n' Write pencils with a few of my students and they have made a big difference. Not only does it help them with their pencil grip, but it has also helped them focus on their writing. They think it's pretty cool to used one of the special pencils during writing time.
I have owned several, and they are difficult to reload. The tutorial makes it look so easy, but the lead won't stay gripped in the pencil.

I love the design and it's great for our students, would love the availability of refills, however. Special ed students benefit greatly from the design but may have a greater tendency to waste the lead.
