I purchased both this...
, April 30, 2014
I purchased both this and the Pentel AIN Stein in 2B. This Neox lead in a Retro
51 Hex-O-Matic is not just smooth, it is ridiculously smooth, even on lower
quality paper. The AIN Stein is good lead, but the Neox is luxurious lead, it
is nearly frictionless in this pencil and makes a rich, bold line. I estimate
the Neox 2B is approximately the same darkness as the Palomino Blackwing 602
writing with moderate pressure, maybe just a tad lighter if you bear down on the
602. It erases very well with a white Pentel hi-polymer. I'm impressed. Will
definitely buy again.
