This is the best lead...

This is the best lead on the market by a long shot. I've used most every lead made and nothing compares to the buttery smoothness of this lead and, unbelievable for a lead this soft, the strength of it in mechanical pencils. My most notorious lead-eater by far is my Rotring 800, a pencil that laughs at anything softer than an HB. Not only is this lead easily handled by my Pentel Graphgear 1000 and my Ohto Super Promecha, the Rotring actually is well behaved with this lead in 4B. No other soft lead has *ever* survived in that Rotring, so it's high praise indeed. It'll also save you pulling your hair out if that pencil frustrates you as much as it did me...this lead literally saved that pencil from becoming a boat anchor.

Neox in 4B in a Pentel Graphgear 1000 is almost, and by almost I mean 99.99% almost, as nice a writing experience as any high-end fountain pen. It's honestly that good. Blacker than night, smoother than I can think of a metaphor to use, it is just one luxury in life that is hard to describe. I'm a dedicated pen guy, a lover of high quality inks (Pilot Kon Peki, etc.) in very nice Pelikan, Lamys, Duponts, Montblancs, etc. and this lead in a Pentel Graphgear can make you not miss ink.

One of life's little pleasures for sure...I hope they never stop producing this lead!

I came here specifically, after many months of using Pilot Neox 4B, to review this amazing lead.

I've used nearly every brand and this is the best.
It _writes_ better than ink, and I'm a pen and ink artist.
It _draws_ at a gray so dark it could practically be used as black.
It erases with ease.
It is smooth and effortless.
It does not break easily like other 4B's.

Buy. This. Lead.

I recommend using them in a Pentel Twist-Erase; the model with the metal clip, not the full plastic body express version.
And always buy from JetPens if you can. I love this website.

I love the dark lines...

I love the dark lines laid down by Neox Graphite 4B since I am a light-handed writer, and I find that most 3B leads do not offer the same smoothness experienced in this type.

This lead is one of darkest leads you can get. It writes very smoothly on my kuru toga. Really good investment is dark and soft lead is your style.
