Edited... Realized it's not Clairefontaine paper that's in my notebook.. thought it was... It's Rhodia Webnotebook with Rhodia paper...Hi.. New to fountain pens this last year, and have had the experience of my Precious 580 1.1 stub not writing well on new Rhodia paper (I'm new to the paper too).  I'm using Diamine Flamingo Pink ink, and have had no problems on any other paper.  On this paper, my Twsbi just doesn't want to write... it skips like crazy... I go over to another paper and it writes perfectly... really wet, smooth, nice definition of the straight lines.  Is there a known issue with the Twsbi 1.1 stub on Rhodia paper?  Thanks!

Clairfontaine makes the paper for Rhodia. Some people have had problems with the really smooth Rhodia products. I know my eco's 1.1 nib has no problem with it.  I think it's pens with over polished nibs that have the most problems skipping on smooth papers.
