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.

It's got a nice light color and is very easy to erase, and is very fun to sketch with. I wish this brand did .5 mm color lead too.

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!

This lead is great for what it is: non-photo blue 0,7mm lead. It is not fragile, but is still on the softer side. It does lay down great color, and is smooth. A HUGE improvement over colored leads I've used in the past.

However, despite reviews I've read. This does NOT erase well. It does stain the paper, even when using it lightly. This is not an issue if your work is pen & ink destined to be scanned for publication or replication, as it's non-photo and will not cross anywhere near the black threshold. However, for original artwork, it makes it unusable. Erasers tested were Tombow Mono, Prismacolor Kneaded rubber, Staedtler Mars Plastic, and Faber-Castell Dust Free, Note: The amount of staining, and light hue of the lead makes the staining almost a nonissue (and it is for scanned pen & ink), but it is worth noting. Paper used was Canson Sketch paper & Strathmore 400 plate bristol - both had the same results.

All and all, I will continue to use this lead when transferring my sketches to bristol for inking, but have NOT replaced my Prisma Color Col-Erase pencils for sketching.

Very faint shade of blue, I have a hard time seeing it. It does write well and very few breakages.

I bought this lead and was honestly shocked at how well it erased.

As an artist, I typically will use blue colored pencil for my rough drawing and then ink over. I'll then erase the pencil or knock it out in photoshop. I previously used a blue Col-Erase, but wanted to find a colored mechanical pencil lead that did the same job. This Color Eno Neox lead is the solution.

The color is light, doesn't tint the page, doesn't smear, erases easily. I used it all the time at work and in my personal sketching. It's the perfect colored mechanical pencil lead for artists.

Great drawing lead for people that like to use the non-photo blue lead. The 0.7 size is exceptional to draw with and the quality of the lead is well made. Similar to pencil lead that erases just the same if not better given the amount of pressure that is applied.
