Marco Eco Plus Pencils
A new brand from Marco, Eco-Plus pencils don't have much background or information online so I'll do my best to describe them and show you how well the pencils perform.
These pencils have a hexagonal barrel and are natural wood, giving them good grip and a basic, no frills look- but don't let that fool you. They come in a very simple but sturdy cardboard tube with all Chinese writing, all of this in keeping with the ECO name. The pencils don't have any colour or number information on them so you'll have to chart the colours and make a sticker to identify them.
Erasing, Smudging & Sharpening
These pencils come in 3 sets: 24, 36 & 48, ranging in price from £8 to £12. I think they're great for people who don't get on with Raffines and want something a little softer with a good range of colours. Even as a back up set or spares, 12 quid isn't much for 48 decent pencils. They're fulfilled by Amazon so there's no waiting for shipping from China.
I was given these pencils in exchange for an honest review. You can find them on Amazon here:

I had tried to find these on Amazon in the US and did not have any luck. So, off to eBay I went, and was able to find them! I'm excited to try them, based on your review. Thanks!

Hi. I were curious about these pencils and wondered how long they are? Are they like standard colour pencils or are they somewhat short?

These pencils are a little longer than Marco RAF fine.
