, 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."

, November 18, 2010
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.

After a few months of minimal use the spring stopped working, so no lead stays
out of the pencil, making it unusable.

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!

, January 22, 2012
I had gotten this for my niece to color with, but ended up using it to highlight
and take notes in my school books. Great color, smooth line and stands out
great in a book without overwhelming the text like a highlighter marker does.
Also nice for writing notes in the margin. I'm ordering a few more colors :-)

Pleasantly surprised by the quality, didn't expect much because coloured
technical pencils are usually not of the best quality but this is far beond
anything I thought it would be. If you don't push too hard the lead doesn't
break and considering it's colour it erases pretty well. Now i need the other

, March 18, 2010
I really liked this pencil. I color-code my school notes and this set of pencils
is really perfect for that. My only complaint (and it's not really much of a
complaint) is that the eraser is covered with the little plastic lid. I make
mistakes fairly often so this is rather inconvienent but I imagine I will lose
the lids fairly quickly. This blue color is a very vibrant color, almost a
cornflower blue, and easy to read.

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. ^^

These are great colored mechanical pencils. They seem to write a bit smoother
and darker than Uni-ball. The blue lead is bright and easy to read.

, November 12, 2009
I was quite disappointed by the pen. The lead that it supplies does not feel
like normal lead, and the eraser is downright bad. It cannot erase completely as
with other mechanical pencils or even the Pilot Frixion Point 04. However, the
pencil is quite long, so it's good for people with large hands, but still isn't
too heavy. Would not recommend buying.

BRILLIANT. Most of the tacky ones you get here just dont write smoothly, the
colour is bad and the lead breaks. This is the opposite. A refillable pencil in
many colours all for less than three dollars! LOVE COLOR ENO~

I love these mechanical pencils. I remember when I was younger I bought some at
Target or Walmart can't remember but I looked for them again because I enrolled
in a math class and couldn't find them so when I found them here I bought them
immediately and let me tell you I love them. I wish there were more colors
though because I love writing my math notes in them and sometimes I need more
colors. Recomend them to anyone.

, March 11, 2009
I bought the whole color line in this series and am very pleased with them. I
was not looking for something to color or draw with as much as I was looking for
a set of pencils to color code my Scripture highlighting.
As any student of the Bible can tell you, those thin pages allow too much bleed
through from liquid highlighters, so a pencil is necessary. The Pilot Color Eno
is perfect for underlining those special verses! The soft, .7mm lead leaves a
nice solid line. The grips on these pencils feel amazingly comfortable and even
though you are laying down a line of color, they erase very well.
When you add these wonderful qualities to the fact that these pencils come at a
bargain price, especially given their solid engineering, these are a great
value. Thanks as always, JetPens!

I have bought the whole color range of these for my 3-year old daughter, who
doesn't accept crayons and must use fine mechanical pencils like dada. These are
of very good quality considering the very inexpensive price. I have no problems
with lead breakage with these unlike what happened with the Uni-Ball 0.7mm
colored pencils. Buy these instead, they are worth the little extra money! Note
however, than the shades of some of the Uni colored leads are a little
different, so it is wise to experiment with both brands of leads to see what
shades you prefer, as nothing stops you from putting Uni lead in these. The
Pilot lead is very good anr bright, though, so this might not be necessary
except for pencil obsessed folks. I only wish they made these in 0.5mm.

, October 21, 2008
The grip and feel of this mechanical pencil is excellent. When retracting the
lead, the tip withdraws within the body, which protects against damage. I
replaced the blue lead with 2B black lead for school work, and it works great.

, January 1, 2008
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!
This pencil is great....
, November 30, 2007
This pencil is great. I've been trying out different colored mechanical pencil
leads to see which ones I like best, and this is definitely one of the best. It
erases slightly better than the UniBall lead, but not a huge difference or
anything. It also has a really good feel to it, it's not scratchy or anything
like some leads are, but since it feels a little softer I think it also wears
down a little bit quicker... As for the pencil itself, it is very comfortable
and ergonomic, the grip is perfect. I just wish it had a bigger eraser and came
