, June 19, 2012
Bought for my wife who is a non-CPA Accountant. Here is her review after using
the Pencil for a month or so: "I would say good. Writes smooth and interesting
to have a colored pencil. The only complaint I have with it is that you have to
write more upright than at a slant. Lead breaks rather quickly if slanted, but
not so when up right."

Not typically a colored pencil user, however, I was very surprised and pleased
with this one. It gives good color whether coloring in an area or regular
handwriting. I did not experience any skipping that can happen with colored
pencils. The eraser is not that great, but that is to be expected. Most
mechanical pencil erasers are dismal and I don't really use them unless I don't
have a hand held eraser handy. That being said, I thought this eraser worked
pretty well at erasing all the color from the page. Application wise, I think
these would work well for taking notes and using them to designate important
information with color coding. They do color areas in well, but like most
mechanical pencils you have to use a soft hand lest the lead breaks. I wouldn't
use them to color large projects although I think it would do so beautifully. I
just don't think it would be practical due to the price of the leads and the
need to have to replace the lead frequently depending on how large of an area
needing color. These is a great pencil. I certainly hope that Pilot ultimately
adds more colors to this line.

A WONDERFUL pencil! I've been searching for colored mechanical pencil leads for
so long, and these Pilot Color Eno pencils were quite the find. The lead creates
soft, but sharp lines. I use it to sketch - I reccommend the bright blue and
green lead for sketching, because they are very vivid, but your ink will cover
it nicely. As for the pencil itself, it is very comftorable in the hand. The
'gummy' grip is nice as well. The eraser is great for emergancy detail erasing,
but will wear down quickly.
If you're an artist and want to try a mechanical pencil for your sketching,
these pencils are just the thing. ^^

I'd have to say this is one of the BEST pencils I have ever use! Its not easy to
break so you can write on for a looong time. Its not as good as those $15.00
pencils, excluding w/ color, but this pencil is good for the price! A must-buy!

I'm beyond impressed with this pencil!
This was a total impulse buy that I added to make free shipping, but I'm blown
away by the color and quality. The lead is strong, the blue is vibrant and the
line is smear-free. Before this, I've always been a fan of using Prismacolor's
Verithin line of color pencils for writing and marking my notes, instead of the
horrible color leads you usually find here in the U.S., but this is the dawn of
a new era for me. Will definitely be getting it in other colors!
