I just got a set of 120 Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils. This is pretty much my first real test on how well they perform. I actually really like them. I like them better then my other set of prismacolors. Every time I'd try to draw with those things the lead would fall out! but not these. Apparently there bonded so I don't have to worry about that, and they also keep a sharper point. So far I have seen good results.
