I love these pencils....
, March 5, 2012
I love these pencils. I got the yellow one and the lead is great. The color is
very vibrant and pretty transparent because it's yellow after all it's hard to
see anyway. But I just love the mechanical pencil itself. I just bought it to
use as a regular mechanical pencil and works like magic! I love this pencil! :)

These pencils are really really great. I've tried several different mechanical
colored pencils, and these are my favorite. I bought all of the colors, and
found them to be of equal quality. The lead seems to have just the right
combination of hardness to avoid the constant breakages I experienced with other
brands, and yet is soft enough to mark on the coated paper one finds in student
workbooks. I use them primarily for marking up papers, but have also used them
for sketching and found them to be up to the task. What is more, they look
lovely all lined up in a Saki roll up pencil case, and you can easily get more
colored lead for them here, so you don't have to throw away the pencil when
you've used up the included lead. I have found that all of the colors erase
well, and the pencils are comfortable and light in my hand. The only little
issue with these pencils seems to be that the colors aren't lightfast. I haven't
experienced this problem myself, but it is well-documented and the lead refills
actually carry a warning to that effect. See here:
Even so, I can recommend these pencils without hesitation.

I have three Pilot Color Eno pencils: this, the violet, and the light blue. The
violet is quite dark, great for writing, not so great for erasing; while the
light blue feels a little too light at times. Of the three, I find the red to be
the best for drawing -- dark enough to show up clearly against the paper, light
enough to easily erased and inked over. Take note that the lead lays down more
of a light red/pinkish color than the very vibrant bright red of the casing.

I like these but the eraser isn't that great. The colors are beautiful tho!

The mechanical pencils are great. I just have something to say about the lead,
but that'll be for something else.
I'd recommend the Color Neox Lead to others, though.
