From the Manufacturer

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.

Style Name: 2B LeadSize: 144 Pieces Verified Purchase
I wasn't too sure about spending $13 on lead, of all things, but decided to take the plunge since I just got a fancy new pencil from Pentel (the Graphgear 1000) and wanted to support it with quality lead.
This lead resists breaking, I've used one stick so far and had zero breaks! With the Up & Up brand from target I was burning through sticks from breakage. Also this lead is significantly darker than the Up & Up lead. The downside is that it is softer lead but I can live with that; it just means that you'll have to click a bit more often. I love how dark and clean the lines are without having to apply pressure. I got this box of 12 tubes and I am fairly certain that i now have a lifetime supply of lead- I just hope I don't misplace my fancy pencil!

**Update- 3 months in and I'm convinced this is the best lead on the market. No, in the world. NO!!! In the UNIVERSE!!!
The lines are still crisp and sharp which makes erasing mistakes slightly harder. I always have an eraser stick with me anyway so thats a non issue for me but you might want to be aware of that. I press hard though so that contributes to the issue.

**UPDATE** I bought this in April 2013, its now September 2014 and I still have lead-a-plenty. That's 4 semesters worth of writing and I'm about halfway through with the box.

I've had a high opinion of these leads for 25 or 30 years. When they rate a lead at a certain hardness, you can count on it. I like that they are availabl in .3, .5 and .7 mm and a wide range of blackness. I also like the red and blue ones.

I have been using pentel lead for ages, and was glad to see this bulk pack. This lead has worked for me since I started calculus 14 years ago. Since then, it has continued to do the job satisfactorily, so I have had no reason to shop elsewhere. It is nice to be able to buy so much at one time and keep my study stocked.

This is excellent lead. Although 2B is very soft, it is strong enough in this diameter that it does not break easily. And because it is very soft, minimal pressure is required to produce an acceptably dark line, and it is easy to erase. If you cannot discipline yourself to use lighter pressure, you may not like it. I like using it very much.

NICE lead! Smooth and decently-dark (some mechanical leads seem pale and "scratchy"). Hardly ever breaks, and I tend to press pretty heavy when I write. Doesn't smear unless you make a concerted effort to smudge it up. My son uses full time for his middle grade work.

I have to make a lot of scans of maps, plats, etc. with notations on them that I can erase later. The standard lead pencil is too light to get a good scan. The 2B lead is perfect - it makes a thicker darker line that is easy to see when scanning, and then it erases well. For anyone needing a darker line, the 2B is good, and this one's a good price, too.
