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:
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.
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.
