In this video, I review both sizes and colors of the US version 90g Rhodia Webnotebooks (aka Webbies). I go over the details of the rulings, page count, features and ink test on the popular notebooks. There are two sizes, both available in orange and black. All the Webnotebooks are ruled, with the rule spacing differing depending on which size notebook you get.
The Webbies have a hard cover, great for carrying around and writing on your lap or other uneven surfaces. The paper is fantastic off-white (ivory) Clairefontaine 90g paper. It’s very smooth, and takes fountain pens extremely well. The US version Webbies differ from Webbies in other countries. The non-US version Webbies use 80g paper that is not very fountain pen friendly. About mid-2009, due to popular request, Clairefontaine came out with the 90g US versions because of the efforts of Exaclair, the US importer of Clairefontaine products.
Note: There have been three versions of the Rhodia Webnotebook in the US; this review covers version 2.0, but we now only stock version 3.0. Check out this other blog we wrote to read about the history of the three versions and the differences among them.
A selection of Rhodia Webnotebooks are available at The Goulet Pen Company.
