I have been using engineering pads like this for 12 years and have always had good luck with the Tops 35500. The latest batch I received, however, was made with very low-quality paper. While it appears that the paper weight and thickness is the about the same as in my older 35500 pads, the paper is much more porous. For me, it is unusable as it is, since my pen bleeds right through the paper onto the next page. This is _not_ a problem with the older pads. Will have to look to National or Ampad for these pads from now on.

OK, so the basic layout of the paper is good. The ruling arrangement is acceptable, and the lines are usefully placed.

But the paper *quality* is atrocious. I've seen newsprint of similar quality. The paper is so porous and fibrous that every ink pen makes a wider line than it normally would. You know how fountain pens will bleed through some cheap papers like nuts? Well, this paper is exhibit A, only fountain pens aren't the only poor performers on this paper.

The paper is so weak and easily torn that a very sharp mechanical pencil easily shreds it. Forget using that nice 0.3mm pencil with a harder lead. It digs in and tears the paper.

The texture of the paper is similar to newsprint or certain grades of tissue. It is as absorbent as many tissues (hence the ink problems).

I have never placed a drink on my pad or anything, yet the paper is all wrinkled up as if it was held under running water and allowed to dry.

No, this is NOT quality paper. It is NOT the best. If someone thinks this is good paper, they have obviously never used truly high quality paper. Heck, even a Mead Cambridge uses much higher grade paper. Never mind a Rhodia or Clairefontaine or even a Moleskine.

I have not had the experience with the Tops paper as many of the reviewers have had. I am a third year engineering student and I have burned through thousands of pages of engineering paper of pretty much every brand there is and tops is my favorite.

Tops Pros:
Thickness- Its very thick compared to the other brands it "takes lead" well high friction minimal force required a 0.7mm lead and this paper are my favorite combination.
Line Clarity- The lines show through the front side of the paper so much better than any other brand I love it.
Margin Accuracy- The margins, lines, heading bars, are always identical throughout the sheets and look great they are the best dimensionally in my opinion as well.

Tops Cons:
The only problem I have with Tops is that the recycled material has tiny blemishes that look like "dots" made by a pencil maybe 2 or 3 of those on a sheet but after the paper starts to fill up with information you forget they are there...

Some notes about other brands- Ampad is absolute garbage they are the thinnest of all of them and the margins/header is always screwed up and varies throughout the pack, and the line visibility is weak. National is ok too thin for my taste I find that it rips easy especially under large amounts of erasing. My second choice for this paper is Roaring spring, you can't see the lines through the paper very well but this stuff gets the job done and can be had for the least amount of money in most cases.

Give this stuff a shot, I did and it's my new favorite.

As far as engineering paper goes, the Tops brand is middle of the pack--not the best, not the worst. I've been using engineering paper for over 20 years, and I like National brand best. The main reasons are

- Grid on the back aligns with the grid on the front, giving you 7 consistent sections of inch-wide grid on the front. Tops and some other brands don't line them up & it's sloppy, sometimes not even completely parallel to the lines on the front.

- The heavy grid lines on back (every 5 squares) are much easier to see from the front. This makes it easier to count squares.

- The hole-punch locations, grid lines, and margins are consistent from pad to pad. When you have a few papers from pads manufactured at different times, the Nationals fit together perfectly which is often quite useful. If the grids don't line up it defeats one of the purposes of having a grid at all.

Overall, National is a higher quality product.

I saw a lot of engineering students using engineering paper for their classes and I thought I'd try it too hoping it would increase the speed at which I take notes. When the product came in, I was astonished how much I paid for such cheap paper.

The first problem with this notebook is paper quality, the paper quality is so cheap and poor, if write on it with a pen, it could easily bleed through the next page. The paper is so thin, ugly, and not very appealing to write on.

The second problem I have with this paper is the texture of the paper, it feels like I'm writing on tissue, even with very good pens.

The last and final problem I have with this is the price, these pads shouldn't go for more than 2 to 3 bucks. They are such poor quality it's surprising the prices are so high.

The latest batch I bought of TOPS Engineering Computation Paper (35502) is made of recycled paper. The quality is extremely poor with highly visible recycled grains imbeded throughout the sheet. Does not hold well to ink, and even writing with pencil is poor. I can't believe they will sell this crap for the high price. TOPS should fire their quality control/quality assurance team. Do not waste your money on this recycled garbage.
