After going through half a dozen brands over the years, Prismacolor being my last, THESE are the winner by FAR. Control is phenomenal especially on watercolor paper, bleed is minimal, I have nothing but good things to say about these.
I was worried the cost would reflect the quality but not wanting to replace my current set at the time due to cost, I took the risk, and I'm glad I did. Do no hesitate if that is your worry with these, the are beautiful for design and have already gotten me a few nice reactions to the improvement of quality in work. 10/10 would/will purchase again if replacements are needed down the line or if I just want more colors
