Beautiful color, erases...

Beautiful color, erases much better than a colored pencil.
The color is a beautiful sapphire blue, dense yet not very intense.
For those of us that use it for writing instead of for drawing: the writing
looks gorgeous but it is a bit on the light side, prolonged reading could strain
Without having tried more colored lead offerings, I don't know if I can
reasonably ask for a darker lead. But I do wish the lines have more contrast
from the paper.
[Note: I tried on line paper and photocopy paper, the following comments may not
apply to other medium]
Pentel Hi-Polymer eraser (available on jetpens) erases writing and lines pretty
well. If the line is done with so much pressure that leaves indent on paper,
erasure will take a lot of pressure. Shading takes more effort to remove but
compare to normal color pencil (I tried Stabilo Greencolors and Staedtler Noris
Club) the trace is minimal.
Did not notice smudge.
