DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions (1)
One 0.5 mm mechanical pencil component only. Requires at least one pen body. The tip is spring-loaded so when you press down on the cartridge cap while it is in the Coleto body, lead will extend. To refill more lead, remove the cartridge from the Coleto body and turn the component upside down. Pull the tip (where the plastic meets the metal) to remove it and refill lead into the metal tube. Re-attach tip and insert back into Coleto body.

Innovation abounds in Japan and Pilot has added a new stylus and mechanical pencil refill for the Pilot Coleto to stay up to par with the Uni Style Fit. Now you can customize your very own multi-pen with your favorite Hi-Tec-C gel pen colors, and include a mechanical pencil or stylus. Just pop in the cartridges of your choice into an empty Coleto body and you're ready to go!

Q: The push tab of my mechanical pencil component is floppily attached to the metal tube. Is the component broken?
It's normal for the push tabs of the Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto mechanical pencil components to be floppy. Since the metal tube cannot flex like the plastic ink refills, this makes it easier to install the component into the pen body.

I love this refill....

I love this refill. I have it in one slot and the eraser refill in another -- How this works isn't clear right off and I threw out the first one because I didn't know how to advance the lead. I assumed it was defective - You have to click down on the grey tab to advance (the tab that sets the refill into position.) The eraser works the same way. I did a video on it a few months ago, if you'd want to see how to do it http://youtu.be/7IKO-jqJqPY

Please disregard most of my review below. When I first got this item, it didn't work, the lead was stuck inside and didn't advance at all. After I took it apart and dislodged the lead (which was not a very easy thing to do), it worked OK, but the advancing mechanism is still clumsy. You have to push down pretty hard to get it to go, and often after I advance the lead, the whole mechanism jumps up to its retracted position and I have un-retract (de-retract?) it again. It's ok if you don't use pencils much and just need one once in a while, so you don't have to carry an extra writing instrument for nothing. If you use pencils a lot, I think this is going to be annoying.

I love all sorts of multipens, but I'm so happy pilot has come out with a pencil component for the hi tec c coleto! My favorite multipen is the style fit multipen though, because they offer room for 5 refills, offer 16 different gel ink colors and a pencil. But, I digress from the point of my review: this pencil refill contains two pieces of lead and can be refilled by detaching the entire white plastic portion from the metal portion. It may feel like you're breaking the refill, but you're not. If you exert the proper amount of force, you will not snap the refill and instead the white part will pop right out of the metal cylinder. As with the review I wrote for the Style Fit pencil component, I recommend no more than 3-4 pieces of lead to be kept in the refill at one time. Lead jams can be avoided this way.

I was -really- hopeful for this pencil component, but upon using it, it's a bit clunky. The clicking motion is difficult to get at first. I struggled to figure it out, even with the video tutorial. It just takes clicking it harder than you think you might need to. But the biggest problem I have with these Coleto pencil components is that the metal barrel spins within the plastic lead-holding tube part. Basically it results in the whole pencil component rotating towards the flat side of the mechanical pencil lead. It's impossible, no matter how I turn the whole pen, to write with the sharp tip of the pencil because the metal always rotates within it's own component. I'm relatively heavy handed, but even writing lightly with it has the same result over time. I also own the .3mm mechanical pencil component and it does the same thing.
