Let’s take a closer look!
To enlarge the screen of the video, click the square icon in the bottom right hand corner of the video (it will say ‘full screen’ when you hover your mouse over the icon).
This notebook has a poly cover like most discbound brands but this one feels more sturdy than similar discbound brands such as the ARC, Eleven Discs and the TUL.
The cover is also slightly different to those brands in that this one at least has some sort of pattern on it, not just a plain cover. However, there are less colors to choose from (only black, blue and red).
Approx.1cm (0.393″) thick (very thin). If you want to add more pages, you’ll need the 1″ expansion discs.
If you’ve never seen a discbound notebook before – here’s how they work:
You can add, remove and rearrange the pages as often as you like. You just pull the piece of paper towards you so it dislodges from the discs. This way you can write on the pages without the discs getting in the way. Then when you’re finished you line the page up with the holes and press the page back into the discs with your fingers (I did a demo in the video ^above^).
You can add and remove multiple pages at a time. If you want to add your own printables to a discbound notebook I did a tutorial on how to resize any printable for any page size here.
There’s space to write a title and the date on each page – perfect for keeping your lists organized.
The line spacing is 6mm.
I tried various ballpoint, gel, fine tip and marker pens, highlighters and stamps.
At 100GSM, the paper is too thin for me – almost everything showed through to the back side of the page. Some of the pens indented into the paper as well.
Compatibility with other notebooks
Most discbound notebooks come in US half letter / junior page size which is the same size as this Eagle notebook. I find the disc spacing is the same in basically all discbound notebooks so the only other thing to check is the mushroom section where the pages clip into the discs.
The Levenger Circa (US half letter / junior page size) on the left with the Eagle pages on the right. Fits fine, the 2 can be used interchangeably.
TUL pages on the left (US half letter / junior page size). Fits fine, the 2 can be used interchangeably.
ARC pages on the left. They don’t align because my ARC is A5 page size not US half letter (I’m located in Australia). If you have the junior page size ARC you should be able to use the 2 brands interchangeably.
Eleven Discs dot grid on the right. Also fits fine and both can be used interchangeably.
So basically if you find a US half letter discbound notebook it should be compatible with the Eagle discbound.
Pros of the Notebook
- Portable size
- 3 cover colors to choose from
- Disc size and spacing is compatible with other discbound notebooks
- Expansion discs available in multiple colors
Cons of the Notebook
- Thin paper that’s prone to pens and highlighters showing through
- Limited refill options, bland design and (in my opinion) expensive for the quantity included in each refill pack and since the paper quality isn’t that great
- Expansion discs are only available in 1 size (1 inch)
- No faux leather cover option available as is the case with other discbound brands (ARC, TUL, Levenger)
- No punch (although you could use the ARC, Levenger or TUL punch instead)
Would I use this notebook?
Maybe. I like the cover but the paper is too thin and is off white. I like bright white and thicker paper. I might use this cover with pages from another discbound brand such as the TUL or ARC.
