I started out practicing on normal grocery store graph paper, using the 6 mm Pilot Parallel pen. I didn’t know how terrible that paper was until I switched to this stuff. Wow.
First off, the cheap stuff apparently drinks ink for fun. Not only did my strokes look cleaner and sharper, but I immediately stopped going through as much ink. I was flying through two or three cartridges a night with the cheap paper. I’ve done about six pages of the letter ‘a’ now without changing ink.
AND you can use both sides of it.
Did I mention it’s smooth? Doesn’t really fight upstrokes.
If you’re just starting calligraphy, DON’T USE CHEAP PAPER. Use this stuff. Trust me, switching has been a pain because I *thought* my letters were looking okay but they looked like dookie on good paper. It’s almost like starting over, so use this stuff as early as possible.
- The dotted graph paper is enough of a guide for most activities without being overwhelming. This allows it to be used almost like graph paper, lined paper or blank paper, depending on what you wish to do.
- The size is ideal: small enough to carry around everywhere but not so small that writing in it is annoying.
- The spiral binding at the top allows the paper to lie flat, no matter which side of the paper I'm writing on. Bound books, like the Moleskine I tried before this, always bothered me when I wrote near the spine.
- The back board on this thing is really thick, so you always have a flat surface with you.
- The pages do not bleed when I use my favorite pens, such as my black Sharpie pen (which is normally too thick to be tucked into spiral bindings, but fits snugly in this one).
- The pages are nicely perforated, so I can rip them out neatly when I need to.
I hope my gushing about this notebook has been helpful. The first Rhodia notebook I tried was their square reversible notebook, which was also very nice, though it was larger than I wanted and the purple graph paper lines were too distracting for most of my activities. I knew I wanted to try another notebook of theirs because I liked the paper so much, and I have not been disappointed so far.
I have used several fountain pens with these pads, but all are fueled with Parker "Quink" ink, so I can't comment on other inks' performance. Years ago, I gave up trying the fancy inks; the Parker "Quink" is by far the friendliest ink I have ever used over the last several decades (yes, I'm old!).
You deserve a great paper to write on. Buy these.
Only complaint and it is minimal but they put a barcode sticker on the back of the notebook 1.5x1.5 inches maybe. Would just rather have them put it on the inside or not on the notebook at all.
I will be buying more and more and more of these.
I love these Rhodia lined pads with the fountain pen. The spacing is perfect, the pen feel is smooth. The paper handles the ink very well.
I didn't like the dot version so much but maybe I should give it time. Things just feel too cramped. The Red & Black is OK but not as smooth as the Rhodia. I think I'm going to be sticking to this brand and probably this version along with more of a journal version after I get through the two R&B books. The Webie pads seem kind of interesting also. Maybe.
This paper is smooth and has very little bleed through. I usually use no more than a medium nib when I write. My preference is Clairefontaine 90g paper over Rodia. I had a bit better flow and a bit less bleed through. I’ve also used Mnemosyne paper as well in this category of silky smooth paper.
Now, my personal preference. If I had to rate this against what I enjoy writing on, I would give it 3 stars. I have found that I like a little more toothe when I write. In return for this choice, I give up som of the bleed through and feathering I get in return. But when choosing which pain do I want, I’ll take a little more bleed and a little more feathering. What I get in return for this exchange is more control over my pen. I can’t stand the slippage I experience on silky paper like Rhodia.

It is dotted on both sides, so you can happily write on both sides with anything but the heaviest of inks. It does rip off at perforations inside, so it comes up slightly smaller, not enough to notice if you keep it in the notebook.
Far better paper quality than Moleskine or Leuchtturm.
The nib types and ink properties show up so well on this paper. Great quality, and almost unmatched value.
The Black Dot Grid is 165039 and the Black Lined is 165019.
Still love the dot pads from Rhodia, great for fountain pen use. Have a mix of this and the regular Rhodia Dot Pad 16559 and really do love these pads for writing with fountain pens. No feather or bleeding, slightly glossy/smooth finish, bright white with light grey dots.
Lines are too much like bars to me and writing on plain paper can go wonky, but the dots are *perfect*.
Absolutely love it and believe that my relations with Leuchtturm and Moleskine are over. I want more Rhodia!
If it matters to you, the page dimensions are not exactly A5. The height is 210 mm but only 199 mm from the bottom of the page to the microperforation on top. The width is 144 mm, not 148 mm as advertised.
Fits well in bag.
Yes bigger than reporters notebooks.
This pad not flimsy.
I will be buying another when this runs out
