Ok if you haven't tried any of the other graphite grades in the Uni 2 mm range, rest assured this is an awesome product. Flawless performance for sketching while remaining quite smudge-resistant. Sharpened lead smoothly glides on card stock leaving rich dark black marks. It's like having a nice gel pen that you can easily erase. If you already use other Uni leads, these softer leads will expand the expressive range of your sketching kit by allowing you to lay down wider strokes and shading faster. Highly recommended.

I do all my illustration work with a series of mechanical pencils and one HB lead holder. I decided to try out a darker/softer lead for shading and this works like a dream. Its smooth and lays down nice dark lines.

The only complications I ran into was that the little color bands that are on the end of the leads don’t fit in older Staedtler lead holder. They fits perfectly fine in the current Staedtler holders.

I used these with a Staedtler 925-25 and it works great. The grade feels closer to a 3B than a 2B when compared to Mars Carbon 2mm leads. If you're wondering about the rubber stopper on these things they are actually pretty tough to remove by hand, I recommend using a knife or blade to cut the part that has it on instead if your 2mm pencil doesn't support it.

Good blackness (as black as Faber-Castell 5B or Mars Carbon 4B), doesn´t wear down as guickly as Mars Carbon, has all the attributes of a good lead. Buy the whole range.
