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!

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.

A pretty soft lead, but vibrant on paper. Looks great and is very helpful for sketching!

I use these for laying down an under drawing of an inked image. The soft blue gives me that non-photo blue, some like. I use these especially when I am scanning the image in. I have no complaints. Love this lead.

I LOOOOVE THIS BLUE LEAD. Not only is it nice to draw with but it erases really well without having to put too much pressure! I always hated having the blue lines stay clear on he sketch when I drew. The color is also nice. Of course it does leave some blue spots if you draw too hard or too much but it's not has bad as other blue leads.

This is also good to draw over with a pencil but I have trouble going over it with pens to ink.

Absolutely fantastic non-photo blue lead.

This lead is soft and easily erases when you are sketching. That might be because I use a light touch with it though. The 0.7 mm lead hasn't broken when I push harder and has been a joy to use. It's budget friendly too, which is a huge plus. I'm really glad I took the chance and tried this out.

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.
