PePentel Super Hi-Polymer Lead Refills, 0.5 mm

Pentel Super Hi-Polymer Lead

Pentel first developed Hi-Polymer lead in 1960. Super Hi-Polymer lead is the perfect balance of dark, strong, smooth and uniform, which is why it remains the #1 selling lead in the world.


Strong

Pentel Super Hi-Polymer Lead is extremely durable lead that is ideal for high-pressure applications. Independent testing has shown that our lead can withstand up to 123.9 grams of pressure before it will break.

Smooth

The average human hair is 1,000,000 angstroms in diameter, while the typical lead microspore is only 10 angstroms in diameter. However, Pentel Super Hi- Polymer Lead is just 1 angstrom in diameter. The smaller the microspore, the easier the lead adheres to the surface of the paper for smoother writing.

Uniform

The way lead is produced has a lot to do with how well it will perform. Lead with too many gaps is prone to break. Lead with too many tight spots will create excess friction and reduce smoothness. Pentel Super Hi-Polymer Lead has an extremely low variance for increased durability and more consistent lines.

Lasts Longer

Each piece of lead is equivalent to a typical woodcase pencil. Pentel Super Hi- Polymer Lead can write 617 feet per inch of lead.

Lead Hardness

Pentel Super Hi-Polymer Lead is available in a variety of hardness ranging from 4B (softest) to 6H (hardest). The softer the lead, the darker the imprint, or line produced when writing. HB lead is similar to the lead found in a #2 pencil and is guaranteed to scan on all standardized tests.

Lead Diameter and Line Width

Pentel Super Hi-Polymer Lead is available in diameters from 0.3 millimeter up to 0.9 millimeter. 0.3 millimeter lead produces extra-fine lines ideal for small details. 0.5 millimeter lead produces fine lines great for accounting and general writing. 0.7 millimeter lead is the most commonly used size that is perfect for students and everyday use. 0.9 millimeter lead produces a bold line and works well for those that write with a lot of pressure or have limited fine-motor skills.

Very accurate and the lead works great.
Larry Evans
This .9mm size lead is much stronger than the .7mm I have been using and doesn't break when I'm having a problem.
Old Codger
These refill packs are exactly the same as the refills I can buy at my local Target.

This lead is great for drawing or writing, HB is a firmer lead so it won't break as much but it's still dark enough to resist smudging (all lead is going to potentially smudge a little bit, but a softer lead will be darker and smudge more).

Here's a list of lead grades from firm (lighter writing) to soft (darker writing):

4H - 3H - 2H - H - F - HB - B - 2B - 3B - 4B

There are others but these are more commonly seen ones. Artists would normally be more inclined to go after the softer leads for fill and the harder leads for early sketching.

For standard writing purposes I use HB-Grade which as you can see is pretty much middle of the line, but F-Grade lead is only very slightly harder and lighter so the end result is just about the same.

Good luck with your choice, and I hope this review helped you in some way.

Lead is lead, right? NO! This is Pentel lead, baby. The creme-de-la-cream (or some french phrase) of lead. And along with Pentel's awesome mechanical pencils, you can't go wrong. I haven't, at least. The type of lead I'm reviewing right now is the most common type, although Pentel makes all sorts of hardness' of lead (also blue and red leads, which I haven't tried). You also get a ton of lead for the price on here. I've read some comments on this site-for the same product-from other sellers of the lead. Many have complained that they should only be selling one container with all the lead inside. I say phooey to that. I keep one in my bag, one in my desk at work, and other at my desk at home. That's three places for three containers, so it works out perfectly for me. Great product. Highly recommended.

A lot of extra 0.7 mm leads for my Pentel automatic pencil. I don't know what 'high polymer lead' is, but it makes nice clear marks on paper and doesn't break very often. The leads fit perfectly and are probably going to last me for the rest of my life, but I can leave the left overs to my son--he writes a lot.

I almost bought a pentel eraser along with this but didn't want to spend a few extra dollars on an eraser. When I received this item, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it also came with an eraser although the description didn't mention it.

I am normally not a huge mechanical pencil fan, but since it seems that most pencils are now made with some weird wood look alike, which the leads separate from and then break, I've moved back to mechanical pencils. Pentel's Twist N Erase pencils have been the best ones I've found. The leads (they are equipped with this type) are not easily snapped and the refillable, long erasers make them a good choice for my math classes. This is the first time I've liked a mechanical pencil enough to buy refills instead of trying yet another type of pencil.

Erasers for this type of lead are a little harder to find or you could say they're a little less likely to be laying around than a typical eraser (which will work just not so great). I didn't expect to find an eraser in the pack but there was a heart shaped eraser with the word "LOVE" on it in red. At first I thought to myself hey, I'm a man I can't be using this eraser! Then I realized it was a free eraser and I was like cool whatever I never would think to rate pencil lead but I'm just so darn happy with my heart shaped love eraser I had to write this review. FYI, since it was not mentioned in the details don't be disappointed if you don't get a love eraser I'm not sure why it's not mentioned or if they all come with one.

Style Name: 30Size Name: 0.7 mm Verified Purchase
I bought a tube of the exact product from a Walgreens store near home. 2B had always been my favorite but Walgreens didn't have 0.7MM, 2B the time I needed some leads. It turned out that the HB in this product worked like B to 2B. The letters written with the leads are blacker than my previous HB leads. And it is so smooth to write in. The only thing that was not so perfect was the price, which was $1.99/tube after a discount.

So I decided to buy more on Amazon which usually offers good deals. And the ones in Amazon were the same products but much cheaper the time I bought them - less than $1/tube. And the shipment was fast. I am very satisfied with this purchase and they are sufficient for my following entire year's use.
