I am a pencil lead fanatic...

I am a pencil lead fanatic and have tried all the lead on the hardness scale. In my opinion, 3B provides the perfect balance of dark lines, smooth writing and hardness. 4B smudges a bit too much and 2B is a bit too light and doesn't write smoothly enough. 3B can still smudge but only a small amount. 4B smudges a bit more than I liked (although I loved writing with it.)

3B will be my lead of choice from here on.

Good pencil lead. Little less smudgy and less prone to breakage than what I had previously, but nothing magical.

I liked how dark this wrote, but I guess I have a pretty heavy hand because I kept breaking it. Had to change to HB. The HB hardly breaks. Was using it in Rotring 600.
Yay! The softest leads...

Yay! The softest leads for technical pencils that I have found in a 0.5mm size (until now) has been a 2B, but these 3Bs are available and they are amazing! Not as weak and breakable as other soft leads and very dependable too.
