My Pen Test with Filofax Paper

A topic that comes up every now and then, especially with newbies who are just getting started with their Filofax, or with Filo-fanatics trying to find the right pen is,
"What are the best pens to use with Filofax paper?"
Looking back at a poll from Philofaxy back in December 2012. It seems as though most Filofax users use a ballpoint pen, with Fountain pens coming in second, and a tie between Erasable pens and Gel Ink pens.
Ballpoint pens usually have no issue with bleed through, which is the main concern because Filofax paper sadly isn't the best paper in the world. Filofax (white) paper is 70 gsm. Of course, the great thing about Filofax is that you can create your own inserts with better quality paper, or find other inserts with better quality paper to suit your needs.
I won't do a test with ball point pens, instead I will just give you a list of my top 5:

My Review Monday: The Original Filofax

First introduced in 2013
"Instantly recognizable, but with a twist. Iconic design with a simple one-piece thick leather cover, slightly rounded corners and strap with gel popper cap. Beautiful in its simplicity, with perfectly balanced proportions. Working with extra thick leather and using traditional construction techniques, these personal organisers are made by our UK factory who piece together the components by hand, using thick thread to carefully stitch them together. Express your personality with choice of color and leather textures – traditional, patent and fluorescentThe Original: a Filofax that looks like a Filofax - unapologetically iconic. "

My Review Monday: Baroque Filofax

Filofax Turquoise Baroque in Personal size First introduced in 2009
 "For women who dare to be different and get away with it, the Baroque personal organizer is the perfect partner. With bags of gutsy attitude, its boldness speaks volumes. An ultra soft, beautifully tactile, relaxed, and unstructured organizer. The smooth leather exterior hides a dramatic baroque print interior."
Sizes: Mini, Pocket, Personal Colors:  (3) Black, Turquoise, Hot Pink Material: Smooth Deluxe Leather Ring Size: 23mm (Personal) Design Features:
Left: Full-length zippered pocket. Six vertical credit card pockets with full-length pocket behind.
Right:Notepad pocket and pen loop. If you have been following me for a while, you will know how long I have dreamed of owning this particular organiser. Ever since I first started getting into Filofax, this one particular Filofax I searched endlessly for. I scoured all over the internet, had other people calling other countries, emailing anyone I knew who had one…
