While researching for sketching supplies I noticed a lack of reviews everywhere I went. So hopefully this helps someone! Review your purchases people!

I use this lead several times a week when sketching. I use red, blue and black leads while sketching (sometimes all three in one sketch). Red lead is great for value studies!

Pros: Has a great pressure to value ratio (light pressure = light color; hard pressure = dark color). Natural flow of color. Doesn't wear out as fast as other colored lead. Great carrying case (don't take these for granted). Inexpensive.

Personal Cons: Not fully erasable. Marks look more like a classic colored pencil and less like red colored lead.

TL;DR - Surprisingly useful and fun to use. Doesn't erase that well. If you need red lead then you'll be happy!
