I got one of these a few months ago. Nice idea, poor execution.

The notebook could definitely use a better cover material and maybe a couple of integrated pockets and an overall design change.

 

It was kind of underwhelming, really.. at least it was cheap..

Good information. How did it perform with your fountain pens?

Pretty good, actually. Granted, it´s not Rhodia/Clairefontaine smooth, but it took my Iroshizukus well. No feathering, showthrough or anything like that. It´s a little heavier than standard copy paper, perhaps that helps too.

 

Either way, If you find that you like the notebook but not the paper, you can always buy the Filofax hole puncher and make your own refills.

I picked up a pocket size one a few months ago. I am liking it mostly because it is the same hole spacing and structure as my circa stuff, including the hole punch. I sometimes use the punch on 3x5 cards that I've printed notes or lists on. My Levenger circa paper is horrible for my FPs and this paper is much better. Also I tend to take notes, snap a picture of them within Evernote and then discard the paper. So the easy removal and refill is great. I do agree with others that the cover is just cheap and thin. It's already becoming rear-end shaped. But when writing is opens fully and stays flat, and that's all I need.

Well I have a Flex with cream colored paper, the paper is smooth, but how its handle inks is pretty dependent from the ink and pen combo.

I have tried only a few, basically all ink pen combination have some level shadow

Parker Sonnet with fine nib:

Diamine Imperial Purple - minimal shadowing, no bleed through

J. Herbin Perle Noire - minimal shadowing, no bleed through

 

Parker Sonnet with medium nib:

Sailor Jentle Grenade pretty visible shadowing, some bleed through

 

Sailor Sapporo fine nib:

Jentle black - minimal shadowing, no bleed through

 

Montblanc Princesse Grace de Monaco medium nib:

Imperial Puple - visible shadowing with some bleed through (less than the Grenade combination and the Doufold combination)

Sailor Kobe Sannomiya Panse - visible shadowing and rare bleed through

 

Parker Duofold medium nib

Asa Blue - strong shadows and produced the most bleed through

Burnt Sienna - strong shadows as well bleed through is visible.

 

Feathering also visible, with the medium nibs its getting easily visible, except Sannomiya Panse was behaved pretty well even was written with medium nib and also its more wet than Imperial Purple.

 

Well, I trying to found some alternative paper to my Flex but if I didn't found than probably will remain Filofax's paper, because it can handle fine nibs well, and I like fine lines better. Maruman's Cover Note is bit worst, have stronger shadows and more bleed through with Imperial Purple and fine Sonnet nib. Although it can happen due I wrote in Japanese that notebook and there is no such thing as fast writing in Japanese... :)

I found an ancient Filofax in my house and sent for some paper. Big disappointment. Too absorbent and too closely-ruled.

 

I'll look into the Tomoe River paper...thanks for the tip!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
