The good points:
- It does not smudge(maybe slightly sometimes)
-100% erasable(much better than Pentel or Uni-Ball)

The bad points:
- It fades away in the light!
-Too light, lacks more saturation
-Wears down extremely fast!!!!!
- 0.7 mm, Pilot could produce a 0.5mm version.

Overall it s a good lead, my 2nd favorite. However, Pilot NEOX is better!

For those of you trying to find an equivelant non-photo blue pencil lead on this site try pilot color eno neox or uni-ball color soft blue. The uni-ball lead does not fade as quickly in sunlight than the regular eno, but i have not tried the neox yet.

Beautiful blue. Easy...
February 20, 2012
Beautiful blue. Easy to sketch with, creamy color and lay down on card stock. It does erase cleanly with some pressure if you've made a heavier and darker mark. But if you are looking for a pencil lead that will not reproduce in from scanners for clean line art, this is a really good lead.

Though I did notice that it wore down fairly quickly when sketching with it. Will have to buy more to assure a steady supply as I think it is a softer lead than for average mechanical pencils.

Still, well worth it to finally have smudge free clean line art!

LOVE THIS! The blue lead...

LOVE THIS! The blue lead is not too dark but not too light. It's just the perfecet shade.
However, I don't like that if I go a little too hard with it, the blue color won't erase or will smudge a little. I also wish they had smaller size blue lead, since I only own about two 0.7mm pencils.

I love this pencil lead for non-photo blue in a mechanical pencil. It erases reasonably well, it feels like your basic HB pencil in hardness, and I can ink over it easily on smooth surface bristol board.
This lead erases so well!...

This lead erases so well! I was using Pentel's blue lead which has a closer to navy hue as well as harder materials which snaps really easily as well as making it hard to erase. This leads is not only easier to erase but also softer to use, making it close to a 2B-4B wooden pencil's lead. What I don't like about it is the lead is really soft, I go through these faster and I feel like the amount of lead/ container could've been more.

These leads will FADE....

These leads will FADE. After only one to two weeks in light, the color they lay down begins to shift from blue to green, and, after one to two months, will fade to near-invisibility or even disappear altogether. If you are using them to provide guidelines over which you will soon be inking, then fine -- maybe this fading "feature" could even provide a nifty sort of self-imposed deadline if you're prone to procrastination. Or maybe you're given to self-revulsion and you'd like your work to vanish entirely. Perhaps even Pilot might consider marketing them as such.

But I'm presuming most people make lines on paper hoping said lines will remain at least marginally visible, not entirely vaporize.

The Color Eno series is great. This is a comfy pencil and I've shared and bought this for other pals.

I make comics with these pencils. The shade of blue is just enough that I can see the work but it doesn't interfere when I go in w/regular graphite or inks.
