Last week I purchased a new large Rhodia Dotpad. I've used and loved Rhodia for many years so was utterly shocked to find that the paper does not support fountain pens well-even using dry writers I've had bleed-through and lots of shadowing/see through...although some pages are ok. The paper feels thinner also. 

Did I miss news about this? Is it a well-known change?

I haven't noticed any change in my dotpads. Can others confirm?


Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

It might help to know which size (the back should have the number) and what store.  I haven't purchased anything other than A5 recently - they're normal.

Same here. But I am now nervous.
