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.

I use colored pencils...
Verified Purchase
I use colored pencils to draft out rough sketches, and these (plus the green and soft blue) work extremely well for that purpose. The color is dark enough for you to clearly see what you're drawing, but light enough for you to draw over it with a regular mechanical pencil and see those lines clearly over the colored ones. The color will also not show up when you scan your picture under the 'grayscale' setting, meaning you can scan in your drawing to show others without needing to bother erasing your guidelines, a big plus if you're lazy like I am.

These leads do erase cleanly and when I use them I don't have to go running to the pencil sharpener every five minutes! :D

The only less-than-desirable thing about these leads is that they seem to run out faster than typical mechanical pencil leads, so if you do a lot of drawing, buy a lot of leads. When I first bought my Pilot Color pencils, I only bought one refill pack for each color. I ran out in a few weeks and was quite dismayed to have to switch back to a lame old wooden pencil while I waited for new leads to arrive.

Finally a colored pencil...

Finally a colored pencil lead that writes clearly and is also erasable! I love this lead and I can definitely recommend it. I'll probably add all the colors (eventually).
