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 Lead Verified Purchase
Purchased this lead because local "big box" retailwrs do NOT stock 2B lead hardness in any size. They only stock HB lead hardness. They are happy to order it for you as as "special order." Unfortunately, you have to pay for it uofront and then wait 1-2 weeks for it to arrive. This is not good when you need it NOW.
I have used this brand of pencil lead for years in various sizes and know its consistant quality and superior performance. I like the quality and ease of writing this lead offers me on a wide variety of paper surfaces. 2B lead hardness offers me the ability to write on paper and erase the marks clean without damaging the paper or leaving those tell-tale dents in the paper surface. Being a musician, this is inportant sibce I can erase my marks on the paper without causing any damage to the paper.
I have tried other brands of the same lead hardness from a variety of retailers but have found this brand of lead provides a darker line since it seems to be softer than other brands.
The shipper shipped the product by USPS and gave ne an estinated delivery date. Imagine my surprise when the product arrived several days ahead of schedule. This was good since I was able to load my expensive mechanical pencils and begib writing with them with my favorite brand of lead.

Style Name: 2B Lead
I first started using this lead in college. It's softer than the average #2 pencil & perfect for coloring in those "bubbles" on the answer cards for all those computerized tests. I kept using it over the years because I like the soft lead. It makes a nice bold mark & yet erases cleanly & completely. I use it for jotting notes & making grocery lists. It writes well on newsprint (or other thin papers) without tearing through which makes it good for working crossword puzzles. This is my pencil lead of choice.

Style Name: 2B Lead Verified Purchase
Absolutely love the 2B. If you have been using the standard HB that every retailer carries you are missing out!

Broad Scope:
The hardness of the lead goes hand-and-hand with the thickness. Soft lead (2B, 4B, etc) will break more easily with a 0.3 or 0.5 mm pencil so you might need a thicker lead depending on how hard you write. I used to use a 0.5 HB and as my writing progressed I have noticed that you can simply read your writing more easily with a 0.9 2B although I still use my 0.5 for drafting. I got to try the 0.9 HB that came with my pencil and just like all the other HB lead it felt very hard and not very smooth.

Specific to This Product:
After buying this box of lead, I now have a lifetime worth of 2B lead... Like an insane amount. (does anybody want some of mine? lol. but seriously. don't message me.) I do have to 'click' out way more lead than when I was using HB but it is totally worth it. With HB I don't recall ever needing to 'click' more lead, while using this lead I have to do it every few sentences. Maybe I am exaggerating a bit but this is how I feel. I have not needed to reload more lead pieces yet so I guess that's a good sign.

Silky smooth writing and very dark readable text... I cannot ask for more from this lead. I have not tried anything softer than 2B but I believe this is a nice starting point for somebody wanting a softer lead than HB. I must say with the 0.9, it has very thick lines. do not buy this lead and plan on drafting with it or any type of detailed work. I use it only for writing and love it for only that purpose.

Sometimes it is difficult to find the soft 2B lead at office supply locations. I like it best of all leads for my Cross pencils. This supply will last for quite a long time. Would recommend others to purchase this product for the shear ease of shopping.

I prefer the softer 2B leads, as they leave a darker impression with less pressure than the HBs, which I had been using. Office-supply stores never seem to carry the softer leads. People are initially alarmed when I mention that I am packinga point-nine millimeter, but they are relieved when I pull out my pencil.

Style Name: 2B Lead Verified Purchase
Grandson writes very lightly and it is difficult to read his homework with the regular HB mechanical pencil leads. I have searched and searched and searched locally for soft B pencil leads and have requested stationery stores to 'special order' which requests have not been met. The ease and convenience of ordering myself on-line makes me wonder why I ever tried any local stores.

This lead is great! It's perfect for drawing! It's blends every well and is great for shading! It does smear very easy so be careful where your hand is positioned if you are drawing. Love the darkness

This is my favorite lead for writing! Makes a strong clear black line, without pushing hard or damaging the paper. I find it much superior to the "normal" harder leads.
