Really like these! Before...
April 2, 2013
Really like these! Before I even started using the original, I ordered another
30-sheet refill and added it to the original.
Aside from my favorite style (flexible cover, lay-flat), the paper is yummy for
a FP user. I haven't seen a "spec", but it's probably 75-80 gram paper, and
takes ink well. The 6mm line-spacing might be a little too "tight" for some
people, but suits me fine--I write small-ish. The covers are tough, flexible
plastic, and you won't need to worry about "dog-eared" covers, for example. Oh,
and they come in a bunch of colours.
OK, now the cool bit--the twist-ring mechanism. It's gonna take a little
practice for some folks, but I think it's really clever. It might look flimsy at
first--the "binding" rings are all plastic with a slim metal rod and a spring
mechanism (this is the "magic" part, to me), and the the whole thing is VERY
flexible--but once you see how easy it is to operate--and how little FORCE it
takes--you'll appreciate what might be the world's THINNEST LOOSELEAF binder,
allowing you to remove, add, or re-order your pages.
My only wish is that I could get it in A5 size. BTW, SIXTY SHEETS is probably
the limit for the (~10mm) ring mechanism (30-sheet original + full refill pack)
I see JetPens now carries a 3 x 5 notepad sized one, too, but only w/5mm graph
paper. Never mind. I still want more of both.
