I use the red, blue, and green leads from this line to make color coordinated
notes in school. These colored leads are best erasing leads I have found thus
far, but if left in direct sunlight will fade very fast. These seem about as
strong as the Pentel Ain leads available here, but those do not erase nearly as
My only complaint against the green is that I wish it wrote a little darker the
first time around and would gladly accept a softer/faster wearing lead for it.
The blue has stayed strong and written dark - no complaints whatsoever.
The red writes dark enough, but the leads that were in my pencil seemed to get
dry and brittle after a while (causing numerous pencil jams). However, the red
leads that were left at home in my desk drawer did not get dry and brittle so
this leads me to believe that the brittleness may be caused by heat from being
left in the car.
