Personally, this lead...
, March 28, 2012
Personally, this lead suits me perfectly. It has never broken on me except for
when I've accidentally dropped the pencil and it landed at an awkward angle. I'm
a little heavy handed when it comes to drawing but it's still held up strong for
me as long as the lead isn't way too far out.
While it claims that it doesn't smudge, it does, but far, far less than any
other lead I've ever used does. Normally I'm covered in graphite, but this lead
reduces it by at least 90%, making my paper much cleaner when I draw.
You get 15 leads per tube which is 3 more than you'll get with other leads from
Also, the case these come in is perfect. You twist the cap, not pop it open,
making accidentally spilling and losing all of your lead much harder to do. As I
wrote this, I popped open a case of the o.7mm leads to compare them to this
lead, and they spilled everywhere.
