Pencil Lead Hardness (from Wikipedia)

Pencil lead is graded by hardness: a greater percentage of clay results in a harder lead. H (harder), F, HB and B (softer) are pencils of average hardness. Pencils ranging from 2B to 9B are softer still and are used for sketching; 2H to 9H are harder than average. A common American #2 pencil is equivalent to HB.

In order, the leads are (from hardest to softest) 9H | 8H | 7H | 6H | 5H | 4H | 3H | 2H | H | F | HB | B | 2B | 3B | 4B | 5B | 6B | 7B | 8B | 9B.

The harder the pencil the lighter the mark, e.g. Bs tend to a create darker colour that can be smeared easily.

Color is nice. Bit expensive just for 6 pieces of lead, but it doesn't wear down fast. so all in all. i'd buy it again and maybe try some different colors. great for note taking and outlining.

I fear the day they may discontinue this product because I have relied on it so much.
Doesn't smudge, and despite what others say, erasing isn't really that bad with a quality eraser (though that might be because I don't really have a heavy hand).

Seriously my favorite lead ever.

Color is a bit faded, its not a dark blue. Also, only six leads? I had to purchase 5 of these. hah.

I have found this lead to be of high quality and provides a dense even color. I use a White Nylon eraser with a steel template and have no trouble erasing. I have also found that this color scans better than some pencil leads that I have used. Last but not least, I have less smudges than I due with a pencil. If your work suffers from smudges than you may want to try a different eraser and/or paper.
  Beautiful color, erases..., May 7, 2012
By skyaintsnow - See all my reviews
Beautiful color, erases much better than a colored pencil.

The color is a beautiful sapphire blue, dense yet not very intense.

For those of us that use it for writing instead of for drawing: the writing looks gorgeous but it is a bit on the light side, prolonged reading could strain the eyes.

Without having tried more colored lead offerings, I don't know if I can reasonably ask for a darker lead. But I do wish the lines have more contrast from the paper.

About erasure:
[Note: I tried on line paper and photocopy paper, the following comments may not apply to other medium]
Pentel Hi-Polymer eraser (available on jetpens) erases writing and lines pretty well. If the line is done with so much pressure that leaves indent on paper, erasure will take a lot of pressure. Shading takes more effort to remove but compare to normal color pencil (I tried Stabilo Greencolors and Staedtler Noris Club) the trace is minimal.
Did not notice smudge.
