Stalogy A4 pad - not for fountain pens

The web description says:

"100 sheets of A4 5mm grid super thin Japanese paper.

Opens completely flat, for comfortable. [sic] Has numbers in the margins, which may be helpful for calculating or scheduling."

It looks and feels like nice paper, but ...

… ‘super thin Japanese paper' does NOT refer to the fountain-pen friendly kind of paper produced by such firms as Midori (much less Tomoegawa). This paper is essentially useless for fountain pens, even with fine, dry nibs and a relatively dry ink. Even fine nibs show unacceptable feathering, and the bleed through is so bad you can read the text from the reverse side of the page. Although shimmering comes through with shimmer inks, all the interesting sheen and shading properties that fountain pen users value in their inks are lost on this paper.

Felt tipped pens are equally useless with this paper, as are fine liners, Sharpies and the like.

The numbered grid markings are potentially useful but not for anything other than pencil or ballpoint (not gel).
