Buttmad fountain pen nerds needs good paper. Good paper make satisfied fountain pen nerd. Satisfied fountain pen nerds encounters bad paper. Bad paper make buttmad fountain pen nerd.

As for me, I tried natural-white "Classic Crest" brand printer paper on someone else's suggestion today. It's not good. It feathers, doesn't allow smooth lines. It's alright enough that a dry pen could fare well with it, it's not total trash. See photo in the 1st reply

Here's a comparison of Classic Crest with Tomoë River. My pen gushes ink, so I gotta have a good paper to handle it. What's a good paper that doesn't cost 15¢/sheet?

Another paper came today. It's a japanese import. It too feathers with my pen, but it's a lot lot lot more mild than that neenah classic crust one. No bleed, but there is some ghosting

This paper is Kokuyo KB-39N paper, and it cost me 5¢/sheet (a third the price of tomoë).

I like Rhodia, but it's not cheap.

This dude does good pen reviews. Maybe you'll find something you like from his reviews.

Stephen won my heart the first time I heard the 1st Mode Apichima in the intro to one of his videos.
