But I quickly learned how amazing this notebook is: Included with the plain notebook is a guide sheet; one side has a ruled template, and the other a grid. All was good!! I bought the journal with intentions to pick back up on bullet journaling and have heard many good things about these journals. Though the paper is thin and I was concerned my markers would bleed terribly though to the back, I have only seen mild evidence of such.
The plain sheets make it very open to customization, and I feel like I can also dual-purpose it as a impromptu sketchbook if I do not have mine with me. I am very satisfied with my purchase, even though I had initially put the wrong product in my cart. I may just continue purchasing this style of journal for subsequent bullet journals after my happy accident
I have used "Pocket" and "Large" (comparable to Leuchtturm's "Medium") Moleskines for many years, and the only reason I started looking elsewhere was the noticeable decline in paper quality with the Moleskine. It doesn't seem to register with the Moleskine management that people who seek and purchase quality, expensive notebooks want quality paper..... Anyhow, I also use an old style "Record Book" in my business and became accustomed to numbered pages, which I now prefer.
1. The Leuchtturm (L) pages are the same height as the Moleskine (M), but the L pages are about 1/2" wider.
2. The L is formatted differently, including 3 pages of Table of Contents, and has an additional 249 numbered pages; the M has only has 240 pages total and they are not numbered. This is purely preference, as I can understand why some would want a clear sheet with no markings, but I have come to appreciate numbered pages, and obviously the Table Of Contents would be useless without them.
3. The L has the same strap and inside back pocket as the M.
4. The outer covers of the L are not as sturdy as the M. They are identical in appearance and feel, but the L covers do bend easier than the M. This is a negative for a notebook this size. If this were a pocket notebook, the flexibility would be a positive, but not here.
5. The L does not open as flat as the M. It does loosen up after you work with it, and it was fine with me, but the M opens flatter, and stays that way, better than the L. The L will stay open, but it does bounce back a little.
6. The L paper is a little better than the M, but neither is as good as the paper in the older M's. The L paper doesn't look or feel any thicker, but it is stiffer. If you hold the sheets up to the light, the fibers in the L paper are more dense than the M.
I now prefer the L due to the format and stiffer paper, despite the more flexible covers, but it is more a preference than a stark difference in quality or function.
The variety of sizes and candy-like colors along with the choice of ruled, graph, and dotted pages make this product a writer's favorite. I need more of these. A lot more.
The main difference between a Moleskine and the Leuchtturm is that the Leuchtturm is slightly wider, giving you that needed extra space for writing, doodling, and generally allowing you more real estate to write, which means it is perfect!
If you use a Quiver pen holder, it will still fit nicely on this journal.
It includes an index page already, and even better, all of the pages are already numbered for you! If you use a pigment pen to write with, it doesn't bleed through the pages, the paper seems just the tiniest bit more thicker than the moleskine and seems more stark white, which makes your writing pop.
I purchased the plain paper, because that's what I normally use, but next time I will definitely buy the version with dots, as that will help keep things lined up and more uniform.
For BuJo people, this is the one for you, highly recommend it!
