The Nu: Elite multi-event journal looks professional. It has large metal coils and a black soft touch cover with rounded edges. Inside, all the lovely, heavy 120gsm pages are perforated. The first 40 pages are "Things to do today" pages. The next section is 100 business ruled pages, followed by 30 pages of graph ruled pages, and 30 plain pages. Each section is separated by a tabbed page marker.
The notebook feels quite nice overall - it is quite solid and looks professional. The cover is soft touch and is flexible, which I like.The elastic is a little loose and I imagine it'll wear out over time after being stretched repeatedly. The pen loop is pretty great but that too will stretch over time, though this is natural for elastic.
The paper feels smooth but it is not outstandingly so, nor is it slick or coated.
- Good variety of paper rulings.
- Perforated pages.
- Elastic pen loop built in to notebook.
- Somewhat fountain pen friendly.
- Fountain pen ink dries quickly.
- Cover material scuffs easily.
- Difficult to close the cover unless it is perfectly aligned on the coils.
- Wet ink/nibs feathers.
- No sheen.
This Nu: Elite multi-event journal is tasteful and nice with a very convenient variety of perforated pages built in. Overall, it is quite nice, and handles fountain pen ink relatively well, if you don't mind using finer nibs. So far, my favourite of the Nu notebooks remains the Nu: Elite Polypropylene notebook as the paper does the best with fountain pens. The multi-event journal is great for a work setting - meetings, notes, conferences, etc.
