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 have used Eno leads for years but this last order of yellow were horrible. I ordered 6 packs of them, and all of them were the same. The lead was brittle, hard, and you almost had to scratch the paper in order to leave any color on the page. Mechanical colored pencils are a brilliant idea, but this is just a poor product. I ordered some blue and violet at the same time with no issues - nice and soft with good color coverage. But avoid these yellow leads. My previous Eno yellow leads were wonderful so I am wondering if this is a changed formulation at the factory? Or?

Leads are brittle and hard. Almost have to scratch the paper in order to leave colour on the page. Violet and blue leads are fine - no issues. My previous yellow leads had no such issues... are these old stock?
