I got this to use with...

I got this to use with one of my 0.5 lead pencils, which is the kuru toga
(plastic body) which promises less lead breakage... and tried it in my rotring
800, I get constant lead breakage inside right at the advancing mechanism... I
ordered the uni ball red pencil supposedly "made for this color lead" and ill
see how it works out. I dont know any lead that breaks so often... But it writes
pretty awesome and erases fairly well. I also just ordered a while collection of
eno neox to try out.
Trying to get some color pencils to color coordinate my diagrams and notes for
I think the best pencil for this type of lead is one where there is minimal play
between the advancing mechanism and the sleeve / tip of the pencil, any flex
will introduce internal breakage which will cause clogging.
3 stars for a great red lead for writing / doodling...
-2 stars for constant and consistent lead breakage.
