Ridiculously smooth....

Ridiculously smooth. I was really skeptical there would be much of a difference between lead brands, and I was very wrong. These just glide over the paper. They do wear down a bit quickly, but this is to be expected of 0.3mm 2B lead. It's very worth the wonderful writing experience. My other 0.3mm leads in B tend to snag the tiniest bit on regular printer or notebook paper. There's absolutely none of that in these. Very nice.

I cant seem to notice the difference between this 2b and the original Ain b. But I must say, this is just as smooth if not a hint smoother as the regular Ain.

I dont like the new container as much as the old one, although it looks better. I feel like I will snap the refills accidentally.

Good lead, buttery smooth, and definitely as break resistant if not a little more break resistant than the regular Ain.

First - The package contains only 15 pieces. For the same price, you get 40 pieces in a container of 0.5 mm lead. Interesting discrepancy.

From previous experience, 0.3 mm leads were just too fragile to be of any use. Even 0.5 was a little too delicate for my hand. Today's lead technology has produced some amazing leads, both super smooth and not fragile. Note: In my test I did not try to break the lead; rather, I wrote with it. And it writes very nicely. And it didn't break. This lead now has a regular place on my shopping list.
