The lead is very soft so one cannot push hard or it breaks.
Michael
So clearly, I wish I hadn't bought this, especially so much of it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I needed red lead and this works quite well. Just keep in mind that the shipping is 7 times the price of the product.

Took kind of a while to arrive. It's a fine Pentel product. Some people has complained it breaks easily and it does break easier than regular lead but I'm sure it's difficult to make colored lead as hard as regular. I press really hard when I write so I just had to be mindful and it was fine.

The lead is very soft so one cannot push hard or it breaks. It's not a dark red and can. Be hard to see if not using on white paper. It does not erase easily, but you can erase it. If you are in the market for a cheaper red pencil that is light in color and fragile than this is your pick. I can't really say I have tried others.
