Smooth but strange with...
Smooth but strange with fountain inks: bleeds yet slow to absorb so smears and transfers.
I got the 5-pack of this paper and the binder from Maruman, both expensive propositions. The paper is very smooth and attractive, and the 20-hole format is very stable; however, my experience with three different Noodler's inks has been poor. With all of them, my writing bleeds; with the red and the blue, it takes a while to be absorbed into the paper, which causes transferring to adjacent pages, which makes it a pain to use. Takes the pen reasonably well, though maybe even too smooth such that there is not quite enough bite for the pens I use (F to EF nibs from Sailor, Pilot, Lamy).

I use this paper all the time, with various fountain pen inks, mostly Namiki Iroshizuku (various colors) and Sailor Ultramarine. No problems at all with smearing or bleed through. I don't understand why the other reviewer saw this, because I certainly have not.
