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.

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.
Smooth, dark but kind...

Smooth, dark but kind of soft for writing. 2B is much better.
