Product Review


  I purchased Pilot Neox..., February 4, 2013
I purchased Pilot Neox High-Purity Graphite Pencil Lead - 0.5 mm - HB, Uni-ball NanoDia Low-Wear Pencil Lead - 0.5 mm - HB, and Pentel Stein Enhanced Silica Pencil Lead - 0.5 mm - HB in one order, after looking at reviews for all the 0.5mm lead available on JetPens, trying to find the one that erased the best and was longest lasting. I compared all three in a Rotring 800, on Rhodia 80g paper(A very smooth paper), without twisting the pencil(So they were all worn to the same point when I wrote with them). This was my second favorite of the bunch, although all three are very good leads, that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. This left a slightly lighter line than the Pilot, about the same as the Pentel, and lasted probably 1/3 longer than the Pilot, but 3/4 as long as the Pentel. It erases nearly perfectly, leaving almost no trace behind, erasing almost as cleanly as the Pilot, but far better than the Pentel. Very hard to accidentally break, being able to easily write with about 7mm of lead outside the pencil, if I was careful, doing about the same as the Pentel did in breakage testing.
