The magic is in the pen, not the paper. BUT this notebook is still great!

I have had this notebook for a few weeks and getting ready to buy a 2nd one. I have been using Pilot Frixion Clicker pens and Frixion Highlighters for a long time. Kids like the Frixion markers for coloring something, erasing, and then re-coloring. With that being said, let me give you my impression of both Frixion line of pens and this notebook.
FIRST: Pilot Frixtion line of pens, highlighters, magic markers etc is where the REAL magic lies - not in the paper. You can use your Frixion pen/highlighter/magic markers to write on any type of paper (index cards, newspaper, printer paper, notebook paper, coloring books, etc) and erase the ink by either using the special Frixion Erasers and erasing as if using a pencil eraser (regular erasers will not work, must be a Frixion eraser) OR by heating the paper for a few seconds either with a hairdryer (thats what my kids use) or over a lightbulb, candle flame (be careful) or any other heat source. The ink will disappear (although still somewhat barely readable). To bring the ink back just put the paper in the freezer for a few minutes and magically what you erased is now back and fully readable as if never erased. Kids love doing "secret messages" this way, and it keeps them entertained. Theres a science lesson in there somewhere I'm sure if you wanted to make it a teachable lesson for younger kids. My point being, the frixion line of pens and markers and highlighters all do this without any special notebook or paper required. So if your on a tight budget, order a frixion pen, then if you find you like it using as described above as a test trial, then order this notebook if needed.
Whew, are you still with me? Seriously I didn't mean for this to be so long lol :)
SECOND: Although I have been using Frixion pens and highlighters for years to make notes, erase, bring back from beyond etc in just a regular spiral notebook and even index cards as flash cards, I love this rocketbook wave notebook. Again, I can get the same functionality from any generic spiral notebook using the correct pens, but I love that the rocketbook adds the functionality of the direct scan to specific folders you set up. I do use Evernote to scan/store a lot of my notes before erasing them, but using this notebook eliminates a few steps in the process making it quicker. I also like the microwave ability to erase several pages all at once. My current way (applying a heat source or eraser) I can only do 1 page at a time so takes longer (a microwave safe notebook is much faster). So scanning and sharing to correct folder is now 1 step, as well as erasing all notes at 1 time is 1 step.
Although the product description does not mention it DO REMEMBER any of your 'erased' notes can be brought back to life in full view simply by placing them in a freezer for a few minutes. Say you accidentally erase something you didn't want erased (me: leaving a notebook in car on a hot summer afternoon erased my precious notes) - place it in freezer to restore it. So (point to ponder) just like the hard drive of your phone and computer - just because you erased something, doesn't mean its really gone is all Im saying, theres always traces. Example, never use a Frixion pen to write down sensitive information (passwords, account info, etc). Because after you erase them, all someone has to do is place in freezer to bring the information back.
