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 would recommend the Color Eno NEOX red lead over this one. I've used both extensively - I'm a tax accountant who must always use a red pencil. This lead has more of a pink hue to it, and it fades more over time. The NEOX led is more red and fades less.

Not bad lead-- it writes smooth and has a decent colour-- a bit more pink as the other reviewer mentioned, rather than a true red, but not bad. Biggest drawback about this lead for me is that it really doesn't erase well. Even light strokes fail to erase completely. Strange, because its light blue brother erases completely very easily.

I gave this 2 stars because its cheap. But it really is terrible lead. Breaks if you exhale hard. Illegible otherwise. Pretty much a waste.

Looked at it funny and it broke. Doesn't erase well. Not worth the savings! Next.
