Here in the US we don't...
May 5, 2014
Here in the US we don't seem to have much choice when it comes to lead refills.
Pentel Hi Poly in HB is all I have been able to find in 0.9mm size (my goto
size). I decided to give a couple different 2B leads a trial as I love a darker
line (esp. for marking lines in woodworking and for those cheap newsprint suduko
books). I ordered the Srein along with Ain, Nanodia, and Campus. I may never
get to try out those others as I have fallen in love! This lead is the
smoothest writing lead I have ever used! It is amazing. I just want to keep
writing when using it. It almost feels like writing with butter! I have it in
a Pentel Sharp P209. No matter what I'm writing on (from newsprint pulp to fine
embossed cardstock and linen letterhead) this lead is smooth as silk. I real
true winner in my book and very possibly the only lead I will ever use (after
all the others are used up of course). This stuff put Pentels Hi Polyy to shame.
