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.

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.

I've tried my fair share of leads, from name brands to the cheap kinds you find in asian stores, and this is the only one I always come back to.

The lead write very smoothly and softly and never seems to break on me. It is also dark enough for my liking and can be used on scantrons in school. Other leads I have tries are brittle and snap and squeak when they write but this lead does none of that. It's not that good for drawing because it's a little harder so you should go for a softer lead but it's perfect for writing long essays. It doesn't smear when I write and erases cleanly. The container is easy to open by sliding it to the right. It never slips and has all the lead fall out. It's a great price online!

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.

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.

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've been using these with the 0.05 Pentel Quicker-Clicker for notes and full-on graphite-based art since I found said pencil {my first mechanical pencil] on the floor in high school. Between how common, how cheap, and how smooth and problem-free these refills are, I've never even considered another brand. Even as a professional illustrator 9 years later, I still use the same pencil and these same Target bargin-bin refills.
It's like, what? 3 bucks? Seriously: just get it.

(And no, I'm not saying this cheapo pencil lead refill will make you a professional illustrator. I'm just saying that it's cheap as hell, and I don't get any skipped lines.)

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.
