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 fairly 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. The 3B grade simply wears down a tad faster
than the 2B, and is a pretty effective shading tool. Highly recommended.

Beautiful smooth high quality graphite. My favorite 2mm brand. I would love to
see some softer 5B and up graphite available too...but for now this is as good
as it gets. Mitsubishi is outstanding. Nice dispenser also.

This review is from Uni-ball Lead Holder Refill - 2 mm - Red - Pack of 6
, May 2, 2012
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).
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!

These leads are individually color-coded (indicating its hardness) with a ring
on the end that prevents them from falling off the leadholder. A practical
feature I had not seen in decades that prevents accidental drops and lead
breakage (when pressing the button absent-mindedly). The leads also fit and work
in Staedtler Mars Technico leadholders. I tried fitting them in my Faber-Castell
TK 9400 and Caran D'Ache leadholders, but I would have had to snip off the
useful stopper ring for them to fit. The leads sharpen easily and glide fairly
smoothly over the paper (similar to the graphite from Mitsubishi UniStar pencils
and less smoothly that the Hi-Uni grade). Good value for this quality.
