Every grad student needs a reliable notebook. I am constantly drawing new models, creating new experimental designs, or simply writing another To Do list. I have bought many notebooks in my quest to find “The One.” I can finally recommend the Rocketbook Everlast Reusable Notebook.
This notebook has everything I need and nothing more:
- It is reusable. The ink comes off easily with a damp rag.
- Allows you to instantly upload or share anything you write or draw
- Download the Rocketbook App
- Preset up to eight unique destinations (e.g., Google Drive, Dropbox, email)
- Take a photo of the page and it send the picture (as a JPEG or PDF) to the preset destination of your choice
- Great size (I have the executive — if you need full pages, they have that option too)
- 36 pages is enough that I don’t have to constantly be erasing to find empty pages
- Did I mention it is environmentally friendly and reusable?
On Amazon, the notebook comes with one Pilot Frixion pen. Since this is the only pen you can use with the notebook, I bought an 7-pack of various colors so I could have a pen everywhere (office/backpack/car/home).
They also have a version called the Rocketbook Wave. To erase the pages in the Wave version you microwave the entire book (with a cup of water). Even though I have never used it, I can confidently say I prefer the Everlast for two primary reasons:
- When you microwave the book, ALL pages get erased. I often like to erase only one or two pages at a time and keep others.
- Rocketbook states that each page in the Wave can be reused up to 5 times, whereas the Everlast has essentially no limit.
[That being said, if you purchase a Wave using this link, you will get three free RocketPads!]
Have you tried the Everlast or the Wave? What are your thoughts?
