I had been looking for something close to a non-photo blue pencil or lead for a
while and decided to try these. They did not disappoint. The color is light
enough to not show up in black and white scanning, permitting you don't
write/draw too densely. Even if it was too dense in color it erases easily
enough which surprised me considering my experiences with other non-photo
pencils being waxy and difficult to use.
The leads seem strong enough. I'm not one to press down heavily while using
pencils so they haven't broken on me so far. They appear to run down faster than
a regular graphite lead which probably means I'll have to replace them more
often. I'm not too bothered by this - just gotta buy some more when needed.
