STEIN stands for "Strongest Technology by Enhanced SiO2 Integrated Network". Each container contains 20 pieces of red colored lead.

The Pentel Stein Enhanced Silica Pencil Lead features a reinforced silica core that makes the Stein Pentel's smoothest, strongest, sharpest pencil lead yet! The lead is also designed to be smear resistant, allowing you to have beautiful, clear writing and smudge free hands (great for left-handed people).

This lead is garbage. It breaks too easily. It's rough and drags on the paper.

The red 0.5 lead Mars Micro Color by Staedtler remains unsurpassable. Pentel is still far away. I have tried any and all red leads.

I use these leads to sketch underneath comic pages and illustrations. They're more precision and less fuss compared to similar red pencils and leads, but here's the breakdown:

Cons:
The marks do NOT want to erase. Not even a little.
The lead is still quite delicate and snaps off easily. I don't recommend it for writing and you should keep and eye on how far you advance your lead.

Pros:
This is a true red. Not pink or purple, as I've run into with other brands.
The point is nice and sharp. Good for precise lines.
Less smudging than Prismacolour or Staedtler leads.
No problems with catching, snagging or sliding on different surfaces. I've used it on toothy sketchbook paper, smooth and vellum surfaces.

I've come to rely on it as my main "clean" sketching lead. Definitely give it a try if you're doing page layouts or inking.

Poor and very light. Would not recommend.

Verified Purchase
The lead breaks very easily and requires a rather firm pressure to leave a mark on the page. So, you either press hard enough to make a mark and break the lead, or avoid breaking the lead which prevents anything more than a hairline, super-light, illegible marking.
