Very nice. It's pretty strong so it works for me. But when it comes down to it...i prefer this over the pentel ain hi-polymer led.

Super cool. If you think that the hi-polymer led dispenser is cool....this is just awesome! It's sleek and you just turn the top cap to the side to slide the led out. It fits much better in a pencil case than the ain does b/c there's no finger thing sticking out of it.

Also, the viewing window is orange tinted which is pretty cool. sorta makes the leads look orange-ish...^^

Love this lead. I tend to not use pencils because they don't write dark enough. This is very dark with not a lot of pressure needed, not easily broken, and not likely to smudge like it says (and this is coming from a BAD lefty writer)

I use this lead for note taking in my Pentel Smash. Stronger than expected, doesn't crumble and creates a nice dark line.

I use this to darken areas of my sketches. It doesn't smudge easily and it's smooth to draw with.

I wanted something softer than HB but not so soft as to be a smudgy quick-use mess, so I upped a bit to 2B.. I know the grades are different between companies but i found this to be harder than the HB and left more of an indent on the paper when erased. I do think the line is a little darker, so it's not a total loss, just wish it was a little softer. I love the little box, too but wish it had the single-lead dispenser feature of others.

Nice product. I prefer the 4B slightly, but that can only be explained by personal preference. These are first-rate leads.

Very happy with this product. Soft and smooth writing with a very nice darkness. Easily erases. (I'm used to writing with Hi-Polymer HB but I think I'm going to switch to this lead :)).
This is a great lead...

This is a great lead for writing because of its smoothness and dark lines--especially for 0.5mm! It does not smear but I feel that it is too soft to use for mechanical drawings.

Soft, smooth and dark. It does break more often than its harder lead counterparts (B, HB and up) but pressing a bit lighter and using a kuru toga pencil helps to alleviate breakage. Also must be extended more often than a harder lead, so a shaker pencil is another good option versus the kuru toga. I personally like the packaging, it is very easy to stash in my pencil case. I haven't had a problem getting lead out of it so far.
