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: http://davesmechanicalpencils.blogspot.com/2009/05/blue-lead-fade-testing.html Even so, I can recommend these pencils without hesitation.

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! :)

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.

Love the pencil. Only thing wrong is the red is more of an orange red than a deep rich red color. Otherwise I love the pen for tiny details and even works for medium and large areas! Great for a base color if you wish to use another pencil to deepen the red color.

This is a great pencil. The lead is just very soft so it breaks easily.

These pencils are so awesome! I got them for my "grown up coloring book" that has tiny spaces to color. I have to hide them from my kids! :-) I only wish they came in more colors. The colors are bright. The pencil is comfortable to hold. The lead lasts a long time! LOVE LOVE LOVE 'EM!!
