Stone paper? How does it behave towards fountain pens?

Taken from the product description...
"Repap paper works best with pencils and ballpoint inks, and needs extra drying time for any liquid or gel inks."
They also included an image with a fountain pen example.

Also, as I must assume that reading the product description and looking at the provided images are beyond your capability, I must also assume that a google search of your specific question is out of reach as well. If it were not you would have found that the first result is supplied by fountainpennetwork.com, to which they stated:
"The satin finish is smooth and even though there is some drying time for things like fountain pens, you are guaranteed no feathering and an enjoyable writing experience."
That should be as much hand holding as any one person could possibly need.

Personally? Not a fan. Fountain pens appeal to me because of the smoothness of the writing experience. This paper has a tendency to catch the nib of the pen making that impossible. I'd recommend a rollerball for these notebooks. They suck the ink out of the pen and write very smoothly, almost velvety.
Actually the fact that it's kind of velvety is probably why my fountain pens don't behave all that well on it.

If it will make you feel better I could feign remorse.

What a douche response. Just because FPN (or the manufacturer) discussed fountain pen use with this paper, does not mean this forum can't be utilized to further add to the discussion. I would still like to read other experiences (i.e paarth's experience below )

Ah, I see. Thank you for your input, but I guess I should have made my question more specific. I was curious if the stone elements gunked up in the nib or feed of the pen. I realize proper care still needs to be given so that it doesn't get bad, but seeing that it is "stone" I was curious about the effects it can possibly have in the long run compared to regular paper made from trees.

Was it too hard to link the correct image in your nasty retort? Looks like you could use some hand holding, too.

I am genuinely enjoying how worked up you're all getting over this. I'll need to stop by the discussions for these drops more often.

Honestly it's not that anyone cares all that much it's just we're used to this kind of shit from facebook and get confused when we see it on massdrop.

That wouldn't be surprise me, assuming you're as lazy on facebook as you are here. I'm surprised you took the time to read my comment, as you clearly didn't take the time to read up on a product you're asking about...

Well just because it's show with a picture using a fountain pen does not necessarily mean its safe for use with one. Many of us FP users would be more up set than people are with you for being a troll, if they damaged an expensive pen by using this paper. It's a completely legitimate question...perhaps in need of a little clarification, but I too want the answer.

You are not a very nice or respectful person (in this or your subsequent posts). Shameful, really, since this is a forum that really doesn't call for personal insults as it is simply for the purchasing of products. If you think a person's question is silly, don't respond. It is very simple. Save your ridiculousness for YouTube and Facebook trolling.

I no longer use any stone paper with fountain pens, unless I am needing to smooth out a nib.

Yes, particles do, indeed, collect on the nib.

I have not had issues with stone particles but I did find that one ink (Noodlers eel) transferred to the opposite page even after I noticed an issue and had blotted, then scrubbed with water. I suppose it had to do with the non celluloid nature of the paper, which ink normally bonds to. It didn't do this with my other inks (waterproof Noodlers).
