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 wish the color was a little bolder, but the point never needs sharpening, and that's really the point.

I have these are all the colors and think they are great! I use them for marking in my Bible and find them the right blend of softness/firmness in use. Super mechanical pencils.

I teach Chemistry. These are AWESOME to use as I run around the classroom helping students on their work. The colors are surprisingly clear and make it easy to see where different numbers originate from!

Great idea for the editing I have to do in the office, overall, this pencil doesn't disappoint.

The only complaint I have is that as a true mechanical pencil, I have to go back and forth with the pencil several times to see that my editing marks stand out, and because of this, I should go with the erasable pens. However, if you have a specific need for a colored lead mechanical pencil, then the Pilot will do just fine.
