This is one of the smoothest blue leads I have used - definitely great for drawing and sketching. An added bonus is the reformulation did make them stronger than Pentel's previous blue leads. They can actually hold their own under pressure and on a rough tooth paper..

Blues being a wax-based lead, they never do erase quite as well as graphite, but these ones do erase better than other blues I've used. They also don't cause ink to bead up and roll off the lines like other blues...

All in all, the best blue leads I've used.

For my purposes, this lead didn't really work that well. I had hoped to use it when taking notes to call out certain portions of text, but the lead drags, almost feeling waxy; the resulting written text is very light. I'm now only using it with small text stencils, which it works well for. This same review also applies to the red version of this product, which I also purchased and experienced exactly the same results with.

So not worth it. The problem is that it's far too brittle. It breaks so easy!! Even on the lightest of strokes I'm constantly frustrated by this fragile lead snapping. I've been using it for three days...I've gone through seven leads. A complete waste of money. The search for a better blue lead continues.

The lead is nice and sturdy. The only problems I had with it is that it writes very lightly, like a very light shade of blue. It feels almost waxy when writing with it. And it's really difficult to erase, It leaves a SUPER light but visible mark behind.

If you're an artist hoping this lead will give you the non-photo blue effect, it will be too dark, even to remove with Photoshop. But the lead is strong and the color is rich and dark. So it's good otherwise! It'll be able to be scanned so if you want to do some blue sketches and not lose it entirely, this is the lead for you.

Well, this lead was a very pretty blue indeed, but when I tried to erase the lead, it just couldn't..erase away. I just ended up throwing it in my bookbag and never using it again. The lead also broke during use a LOT of times. But!-I love the color.
Really great lead. I...

Got this based on the other reviews, but this blue lead is a work in progress. The lead breaks often and the blue is not a darker blue. Disappointed.
