        Don't let the negative reviews fool you. I've been using these leads for years. I use both Red and Blue versions in every day sketching for work and for my own comics and illustrations.

        The issues with the other users I believe is that they are not used to using these types of soft leads. I am able to get a full range of light and dark tones with these leads.

        If you are going to use these types of leads, then you should be aware if you are heavy handed and need to learn to use a softer touch when drawing with this product.

        The idea of having red lead refills for mechanical pencils seemed like a great idea until I used it. My plan was to use the red lead refills to markup architectural drawings, in theory it should have been an ideal product, noticeable red marks with thin accurate mechanical lines that can be erased. But it didn't work that way at all. The lead is extremely brittle, it constantly breaks, it makes a very light non-distinct mark that are hard to erase. If Pentel lead refills are something that you use, notice that the standard refills have a break resistant symbol on their packaging but the colored lead does not, not a coincidence. Do not try this product, use colored pencils instead.

        I would not reccomend this red lead

        Comments about Pentel Red Drafting Lead Refills .5mm, 36 Leads:

        Unfortunately I have had nothing but problems with this lead. It breaks SOOO easily. I admit that I do have a "heavy hand", but have no problem with regular .7 lead. Maybe the slight difference in thickness makes a big different.

        But also when I use less pressure, it doesn't write as well. And red lead never seems to erase very well--this lead is even WORSE for erasing (at least using the standard erasers on multiple pencils I've been using)

        Not impressed, and actually very disappointed.

        We have looked in all the stores for the lead. We found it online through you guys. It has been wonderful and we will definitely being ordering more. We use this lead to keep the score books for our softball and baseball teams. This lead is how we mark the outs and how the outs were done.
