Exactly the same review I gave for the light blue lead. Erasable and gave a 7
out of 10 in breakability rating. for those who say it's easily breakable, there
can be several reasons aside from the strength the lead is manufactured to be.
it could be your lead is extended out little longer than normal, or
unconsciously putting heavy force, or even the angle you hold your mechanical
pencil for writing and drawing can determine how often a lead breaks. just a
thought. But I love Uni-ball's color pencil lead. My only requests are for them
to keep selling these and to make 0.9 mm lead.
For any artist wanting precision out there, this is the equivalent mechanical
pencil version of Col-Erase non-photo blue pencil. It's very erasable and it’s
a light baby blue color. I totally stocked up on these because I use it a lot
for my under drawings. I wouldn't say these leads are easily breakable. It seems
to be somewhat in the middle. If I had to give it a scale of 1-10 in
breakability, I'd say 7. It’s strong enough to put some pressure on it without
it breaking, but breakable enough for those who really put a lot of unconscious
force into drawing or writing.
I love this eraser! *perfect-practical shape. *black colored for keeping a
graphite-free clean look. *lasts long. *erases effortlessly well. I recommend
this eraser over the Staedtler Mars Plastic eraser which i use to use but not
any more after getting my hands on this one.
I bought this a few weeks ago and have been comparing it to my Alvin
Draft/Matic. I noticed the Graph 1000 is super light weight in comparison and
seems cheap to my Alvin Draft/Matic. The graph 1000 writes/draws well and looks
super sleek, but again i prefer the Alvin Draft/Matic, because it has quality
and a solid low center of gravity balance you can definitely feel.
