300 Circa Rhodia Annotation Ruled Refill Sheets
This paper is by far the best paper to write on with a fountain pen. It flows effortlessly and dries very quickly. It is a joy to write on. I do not like using my fountain pen on any other paper, I wish all paper was this good! I would highly recommend.

I enjoy writing on this paper because it has a very smooth feel. I never realized the other paper felt rough til I got this. It is also thinner than the regular paper, which is good for me because my Circa notebook is always bulging. But, I do have to be more careful when moving a page as it seems to tear a little more easily where it's punched. Might just be me.

The "Luxe" of Circa Papers
If you want to treat yourself on a daily basis, Rhodia refill sheets are the way to go. Smooth, elegant paper is a tactile delight. AND, the ink is purple -- a surpise that delights every time you go to a sheet. Pricey, but I mix it in with regular refill sheets.

My favorite paper
I have tried most of the Circa refills. This is my favorite. I started with the notebook as a chance to try it out without having 300 sheets. The crisp whiteness is beautiful, easy to write on, and keeps markers and ink pens from bleeding through better than most of the others. Not sure what to call it but it feels a little "shiny". In painting it would be glossy or eggshell compared to the standard matte feel. That small difference makes it my favorite. I will definitely get more!

Love this paper
I am a huge fan of Clairefontaine paper and have been for years. Finally having it available in American paper sizes for the Circa system is wonderful. But please, please, PLEASE offer it in full page dot grid, or full page ruled at the very least -- especially for the junior size!!

Great Circa Addition
This paper has brought me back to my Circa system. A paper that handles fountain pen ink well is a great addition. I would love to see the Dot Grid option added.

Perfect for Cornell Notes
This paper is excellent for taking notes following the Cornell Note taking method. As an old-fashioned law school student I take notes by hand and use the Cornell method. Before I found this paper I struggled along with regular computer paper and filler paper, both not well suited to fountain pen use (especially recycled computer paper).
This Rhodia paper is excellent for fountain pens. I can take notes quickly and there is virtually no bleed-through from any inks (I've used Levenger, Aurora, Private Reserve, and Diamine inks). Some inks might bleed, but generally that won't be a problem. Some inks take a little longer to dry than others (which can make turning the page to write on the back a little tricky if you're taking notes fast) but its reasonable, usually no more than about 10 seconds. The annotation bar is perfect for the Cornell method.
I agree with others that a full-ruled version (without annotation bar) would be excellent as well and I would like to see that soon. But, definitely keep making this too, its value is priceless for taking notes in class!
If you're looking for high quality annotated paper I don't think you can get much better than this. I highly recommend!
