There was a point in my fountain pen journey where I cared more about fast dry time than how things looked on the page, including not caring about feathering. And during that time I was big into Field Notes. Plus that the Field Notes shipping at the time was really cheap and fast compared to everything else.
Today I use notebooks from Rhodia that is very similar to this.
What I liked about the Steno book was that it had a sturdy cover that made it easy to write with it on the couch. And this was when I started to really appreciate notebooks where I could just rip pages out when I was done with them.
Haven’t used them in years, and don’t see myself doing so any time soon.
