  I use the red, blue,..., March 14, 2010
By lli...
I use the red, blue, and green leads from this line to make color coordinated notes in school. These colored leads are best erasing leads I have found thus far, but if left in direct sunlight will fade very fast. These seem about as strong as the Pentel Ain leads available here, but those do not erase nearly as well.
My only complaint against the green is that I wish it wrote a little darker the first time around and would gladly accept a softer/faster wearing lead for it.
The blue has stayed strong and written dark - no complaints whatsoever.
The red writes dark enough, but the leads that were in my pencil seemed to get dry and brittle after a while (causing numerous pencil jams). However, the red leads that were left at home in my desk drawer did not get dry and brittle so this leads me to believe that the brittleness may be caused by heat from being left in the car.
