Right now I am using them in the Enchanted Forest adult coloring book by Johanna Basford.
Many prismacolor enthusiasts are complaining about hardness of this pencils, I wonder this is pretty soft with oil based leads need different pressure application than prismacolor.The color output is very detailed deep and more natural than prismacolor,however prisma's are more vivid and unnatural but you can achieve realism in prisma's depends on artists.
Coming back to quality
1. This pencils are unparalleled never ever face a single breakage even using cheap quality sharpener.
2. To achieve very fine details this is your go to color pencils, (prismacolor is horrible while sharpening).
3.plenty of natural skin tone colors like all 3 flesh colors(light,medium,dark)also cinnamon,pompein red, burnt carmine,burnt ochre,sangiune,walnut brown etc. are excellent for portraits pretty much match with prismacolor skin tones.
4. Come back to red's this Faber castell polychromos have the widest range of reds among all the artist grade color pencils even better than prisma.for example this dark red put prismacolor's crimson red in to shame also red violet, magenta, scarlet, madder all are gorgeous indeed true colors, However prismacolor's Tuscan red is unique brownish red is better than polychromos burnt carmine.
5.Come back to greens this polychomos had many natural greens like chrome green opaque, olive green yellowish, pine green, light green all re superb for natural floral drawings.
6. This 60 set doesn't have much browns and greys only walnut, Vandyke’s, burnt ochre, raw sienna and 4 more greys compare to prisma it's very less but in 120 set you can get full range of browns.
7.Polychromos black is the deepest black color pencil even better than Derwent drawing's black, but white is not as opaque as Derwent drawing or prisma,polychromos white is translucent more suitable for classic look on toned papers.
8.it's more value for money than prisma actually because of this pencils sturdiness in lead it will not wear out so easily, so it's 3 times more lifetime than prismacolor.but price wise its expensive than prismacolor(132 prisma set sold for 97$some time back compare to 96$ polychromos 60 set)
Overall it's very very high quality color pencils with marvelous deep color application suitable for artist to amateur(i personally advise don't waste this pencils for adult coloring etc because for adult coloring plenty of cheap color pencils will give you same result) this pencils are meant for professionals or semi pro.This is the treasure from Faber castell.
There really isn't anything negative I can think of.
One really great thing about this was that there are A LOT of VARIOUS REDS! This has the BEST SELECTION OF REDS of any other colored pencil package I've seen!
In the end a truly great product and a MUST HAVE FOR ANY ARTIST!

Very happy with my new pencils and they add to my collection. I've used them on my Johanna Basford Secret Garden coloring book and loved the color and blendability!
Update: Now that I have added a few more pencil options to my art box, I have had a chance to compare these to additional options. These remain the star of the show. They have great pigment, lay down smooth color, blend and layer beautifully. In addition they keep their point for a respectable length of time allowing some time between sharpening. I can't find a true con to these. The only minor issue is the vibrancy not quite matching up to the prismas, but it's very close! I like to play around with all my pencils in different applications but I always return to these. Still very happy playing with my Polys!!
