Pros:
- After trying out various hard/soft leads, 3B is my favorite for taking notes and writing.
- Awesome dispenser/container ^^ Best stuff out there in my opinion. Sometimes when i\'m at a loss for lead, i go out to Staples or Office Max and get a 3 pack of lead and take the lead out of those containers and simply refill this container :P

Cons:
- NONE...at all. Cept that it\'s semi-expensive. ~shrug~. A 3 pack of 30 pieces at an American retail store costs less $$, but hey, what can you do. haha. If anything, buy this item for the dispenser and just keep refilling it with cheaper lead. That\'s what most of my friends do. :D

Although it should be very soft, this lead is actually very durable, and can write very darkly. It only smudges if you really try. I love it.

Flat out - this is the best 0.5mm lead I have ever used! I have tried them all; the Ain is exceptionallyl smooth, dark and extremely strong. Don't mess with the rest - you won't go wrong with this lead!

This lead is in a category of its own... extremely hard and perplexing. It's the equivalent of "Lead with an inferiority complex..." and sports the darkness of 3B with assertion and pressure, then SNAP!!! Neither do I like the plastic case it comes in with the funky latch. Everything about this lead irritates me... breakage, breakage, and more breakage.
