Great Alternative to Berol
By Portrait Artists
from Pennsylvania USA
Berol's discontinuation of Turquoise Leads forced me to find an alternative. Staedtler's leads are a fantastic find and better than Turquoise. The leads are pure, without flaws that show up on a drawing when you don't want it to. It's hard and reliable. The only drawback is that there is no 3H and only goes to 4H and 4B.
Most superior leads
By Mark T
When it comes to using graphite, I've done away with most pencils and have stuck with Staedtler leads and lead holders. The wonderful thing about using these leads is that you never have to worry about the pencil getting shorter and resorting to using an extender in order to make you pencil last.These leads lay down super consistently. I've been using these leads and Staedtler lead holders now for over five years and I simply wouldn't use anything else. The ONLY time I use a graphite pencil is when I want something darker than 4B, for which I reach for the Staedtler Lumograph pencil 7B or 8B. You can sharpen these leads to a needle sharp point using the Staedtler lead sharpener. This allows me to get some of the finest details laid down in a drawing, which really enhance the overall feel and look. I'm not much of a graphite lover but whenever I need it, I reach for Staedtler - nothing else.

Got these at a great price! I've been using these 2mm leads for years and love 'em.
Good quality in a basic-need product

Consistent results of tone from lead to lead. Smooth application.

I love Staedtler leads, they are strong and the color is wonderful and just what an artist expects. This time they arrived in a flat container, which all in all is quite nice, however, I was used to purchasing them in round tubes that I preferred over the flat ones. These are the only leads I enjoy using and so I will continue to order them, I just wish they had them in the round tubes with each different lead numbers in the tubes. The tubes held twelve of each lead. I will continue to order from Dick Blick as they offer great prices.

Fairly quick delivery.

Compared to drawing pencils, I prefer this lead option because I don't have to shave the woods! The only con is that the lead is a bit pricy and you have to buy the holder as well (1 for each hardness), but the product will last for a good amount!

The lead quality is excellent! And the product is so much easier to draw with compared to a regular drawing pencil or the 0.5 lead pencils. You don't have to sharpen the wood; simply sand down the edges with the sandpaper block or buy a lead sharpener. The only complaint I have is that the lead is a bit pricy. But the lead lasts last a while!!

Not much to say. They are Staedtler leads. Doesn't get much better than that. IMO.
