Amazing quality, beautiful notebook! I have wanted a Rhodia Webnotebook ever since they came out w/the lined version many years ago, but I held out for the dot grid version....and wouldn't you know, they made one last year, and Jetpens carries it!!!! ^_^ yayyyy!
The Webnotebooks sold by Jetpens are the "3.0 version" with 90 gsm Clairefontaine ivory paper that accepts broad gel pens & fountain pens with NO bleeding or feathering (you CAN write on both sides of each page!), lies flat when open, & does NOT have the distracting Rhodia logo on the bottom corner of every page.
And if you use the 40% off coupon, or you buy the two-pack, Jetpens actually has the lowest price online.
If you like the "little black book" feeling of pocket Moleskines and the "art-journally" feel of those cool black hardbound sketchbooks, PLEASE grab yourself a Webnotebook and enter the world of grown-up journals :) because after I unwrapped my two dotgrid Webbies from Jetpens (one black + one orange, of course), I immediately gave away my remaining unused Moleskines and Piccadillies, because YES, Rhodia's Webnotebook IS just...galaxies away from those silly little Molies/Molie clones & their wafer-thin pages that feather/bleed & their weird oily moleskine covers that smell like chemicals. (P.s. then I came right back to Jetpens and got two of the bigger lined Webnotebooks plus a smaller size lined notebook-and I'm sure I'll be getting a couple blanks sometime soon).
The only reason I would ever hesitate to recommend the Webbies is if ivory paper isn't your thing...if you prefer bright white, then you may not *love* Webnotebooks. Jetpens has a pic of the ivory pages; if you look at the large blank Webnotebook with the black cover, you can see that the pages are ivory/off-white. To me, they are just lovely & it adds a little character to all of my various colors of ink; ink purist-types may prefer absolute white pages to experience the "true color" of their inks...to each his own!
But if you're already using a Moleskine-type journal with off-white pages, you only *think* you're happy.... For the same price, you could upgrade to a Rhodia Webnotebook and experience true luxury.

Amazing in every aspect except the price!

I had read that Rhodia made better products than Moleskines all over the web; so I went out and purchased a Moleskine (you have the have something to compare it with after all), and wrote exclusively on that for a few days before putting my next Jet Pens order together. When I got to the end of the order I very much debated on adding the Rhodia to the mix and eventually came to the conclusion that I would eventually be getting one, so I might as well do it here.

My first impressions are very nice. The pages are extremely smooth! There is no feathering, or bleed-through, and only the slightest of show-through (when using a Pilot Preppy EF (0.2mm) nib (with Diamine Blue/Black ink), or the Preppy F (0.3mm) (with the standard Preppy Black cartridge)). Even when you get up to larger nib sizes (0.5mm for instance) (with the standard Preppy Black cartridge) there bleed- and show-through is no different! The 0.5 did have the slightest of feathering though (very small veins that didn't travel far at all). I didn't notice any significant difference in the dry time needed for the ink in comparison to the Moleskine, and I normally leave my notebooks open for a while after I am done writing anyway just to be safe. Needless to say, the paper is absolutely amazing!

The cover is nice and smooth with an embossed Rhodia logo on it and nothing else. It is also approximately twice as thick as the cover on the Moleskine, which means that it gives a little when you squeeze it and feels overall nice in the hand. I would even be interested in having a little extra give in the cover than what you can get out of this one, but that's not going to sway me one way or the other.

There are some things that I am not a fan of with the Rhodia. For instance, the webby that I got definitely wants you to know that it is Clairefontaine paper, and actually says so at the bottom center of the first page. It isn't a huge thing, but it does take up a little real-estate from my writing. And as I said, it is only on the first page, so it won't be a major factor as I go forward.
There isn't any title/ ownership page. Sure, it comes with an extra sheet of black paper at the front and back of the notebook, but it doesn't have a mostly-blank sheet of cream paper for ownership and title information. The Moleskine does and it is a nice feature.
The ribbon is slightly too short. Now, this is very much a preference thing, but I would love to see about an extra 25mm (1 inch) of ribbon for the bookmark. Otherwise, it is very easy to overlook or even lose in the book if it isn't laying flat.

This was just what I needed for my Bullet Journal. I use a fountain pen. There is no bleed through on the pages. Just perfect.

LOVE this little notebook, used it everyday for journaling and even takes a little watercolor for sketches. Docked a star for price, but still, I used it for 5 months already( still have about 1/4pages left ) so I guess its worth the investment!

Smoothest paper I've ever used. I'm new to the nice paper game, and it looks like I'll be staying. My fine nib platinum preppy doesn't show through at all.

The leatherette cover is hard and pleasant. I like the short bookmark ribbon (just barely beyond the length of the page). It's my first dot grid journal, and I love it! Even with most of my use this far being plain writing, I love how clean the page looks. I haven't had any trouble transitioning to the dot grid.

Lovely notebook. It was just what I wanted for my travel this summer. The paper is surprisingly thick despite the slim frame of the notebook. Highly recommended.
