This Maped Universal Gom Stick Eraser works better than the erasers that come on the end of pencils but not as well as the Pentel Hi-Polymer Eraser. It doesn’t leave a residue, it doesn’t take the paper with it. That’s great, but it doesn’t erase as completely as the Pentel.
I like the holder and was hoping to put a Pentel eraser into it, but the Pentel erasers are a little to big. When all is said and done, the holder is just a little gadget that isn’t necessary. I’d take the Pentel eraser over Maped, and I’d choose the Maped over the pencil top erasers.
