Well...

Folks using disc binding (Rollabind and Levenger Circa) find heavier paper (24# or 28#) works better than common 20# copier/printer paper. Others choose paper by how it takes ink from fountain pens.

Summarizing, I'd say it depends on your binding and writing instrument preferences.

I was thinking about filofax planners, but every comment on every planning system is wellcome.

It's a personal thing

just like your planner.
If you do a lot of writing -- with a pen -- you develop preferences. For ring bound planners, the peper weight is less important. Find a paper you like and go with it.

Preferred type of paper

I have found the #24 multipurpose paper to work well for ring or circa, I use both systems, and #28 or higher as page separator (color). I create my templates and print them in inkjet or laser printers, and use a gel or a regular rollerball pen. If you are a fountain pen user, you may have to try various types of papers before deciding. I have used fp in my #24 mp paper, and it works decently if I use a fine point nib.

Preferred Type of Paper

Anything that won't cause my pens to bleed, that's as close to opaque that I can get w/o making my Filofax twice as big, and a paper that does not have a "tooth" (that's smooth, not rough or textured)!

regular notebook paper

I'm in college. I have a lot of regular notebook paper, those packs of loose-leafs you get and never use up.
I have both the higher-quality ones, almost printer paper, from about 5 years ago, and the low quality ones, thin and semi-transparent, from the laser-cutting spurt a couple of years ago (yeah, never using those batches).
Anyone tried smurfing loose-leaf paper?
Does it work?
I'm thinking of doing that, and cutting off the smurfs for binder-archiving. Or maybe vice versa, smurf for archiving and a folder for note-taking. What do you guys think?

It works, sorta - kinda ...

Thinner paper tends to be more flexible, and that sort of paper does not stay on the discs very well.
Experience to date implies that stiffer paper stays on better.
I should dig out some old drafting vellum I probably still have and try it.
