EXCELLENT!! I've been looking for a lead like this for years. It's non-photo
blue, erases easily without leaving a residue, and is covered by both copic
multiliner ink and india ink without beading or adhesion issues. The 0.7mm size
doesn't break easily. If you want a non-photo blue pencil you don't have to
sharpen, pop this in a 0.7mm pencil and go to town.
BETTER! WAY BETTER than the regular Pilot Eno soft blue lead! The cheaper Eno
lead wears down SOOOOOOO quickly. However, this ENO NEOX lead does NOT! I just
tested it and I did NOT have to frequently advance the lead.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for those who LOVE to use light blue lead!
In spite of good reviews here and from other artists, I can't recommend these
leads the way others have. The colour is fine, the line is smooth and
not-too-light/not-too-dark, though its waxiness makes it too shiny to see if the
light/glare hits the paper wrong. The line erases completely with a Pentel Ain
Hi-Polymer eraser. But the leads are fragile. I have a light touch, and I've
tried them in several mechanical pencils, but at the end of a drawing session my
lap looks like I've been eating a cupcake with blue sprinkles. I'm soldiering on
with these until I find something better.
