Disappointing. Pentel products are usually first class however this is not their finest hour. I bought red lead but found it to be a greasy product much like red crayon that only produced a pink result. Any pressure in an effort to reproduce red ended in broken lead. Poor product

I'v purchased both pentel and staedtler, red and blue leads, whilst staedler leads produce a richer colour with less pressure, they tend to break often and easily even when out under a millimetre. Personally I find pentel better though require greater pressure or multiple attemps to produce a rich colour. Though in 0.7-0.9 staedler may come out on top.

The lead in your pencil will snap off if you poke even a small amount out, so, these leads are a bit fiddly to use.

Wonderful! 18 Feb 2009
By Margarita Ramirez - Published on Amazon.com
The lead DOES erase well if you use fine quality paper. It does not erase well on cheap paper. I suggest if you are using these to sketch you use Moleskine Sketchbooks which use a heavier paper than most brands.

I use this color a lot and I mean A LOT when I sketch. It is helpful when I am laying down a foundation for character work in my sketchbook. Now that I own it I can't see myself not using it. I can't believe more brands aren't mimicking this color lead thing. :)

I was able to find blue Pentell lead on another site, I wish Amazon carried it.

Just what I expected 3 Sep 2013
By Alan Groupe - Published on Amazon.com

Like most, I wanted to have a second mech pencil with red lead for markup. I don't know how hard some reviewers' stroke is, but these work fine for me with no breakage yet, even pressing hard. However, they are more waxy (?) than black lead, so when pressing hard they do wear quickly. And they do erase, but not nearly as readily as normal black lead.

As to color, these are "red", not Pantone # whatever. Maybe they're a shade of pink -- but they are red, as distinguishable from black, which is all I think they're meant to be.

No advantage over black lead 3 April 2012
By D. Reid - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought the red lead for correcting papers, but it has proven useless. The lead is very soft and crumbles easily while writing. The crumbling is especially a pain when revising papers because I think I tend to press harder while correcting small, detailed text features. Also, the color is too light, and compared to regular lead, there is no advantage. It also does not erase. So clearly, I wish I hadn't bought this, especially so much of it.

Very disappointing 7 Jan 2013
By Seth Tidball - Published on Amazon.com

The color was not red, but a light pink. The lead was hard and scratchy. I could neot even see the lines unless I used heavy pressure.

They break to easily. 24 Aug 2013
By mlotus - Published on Amazon.com

I am a teacher and was hoping to use these for grading since I prefer writing with a pencil. These did not work out at all for me. The lead breaks every few minutes. Annoying. I will try a thicker gauge.
