I bought a 6x6 and 8x8 pad of this watercolor paper to work on a smaller scale, and it wasn't worth it AT ALL. I'm returning the 8x8 that I didn't use, but unfortunately I am stuck with the other 11 sheets of 6x6 paper.
I did not have a problem drawing on this paper with a mechanical pencil, but once it came time to paint I ran into all sorts of problems. The water bled into grooves before I even added pigment to it. I could not keep a straight line, and the pigment either built up in random areas, or was resisted entirely. It would not take for shading and precision. I was thoroughly disappointed.
In the end my painting, which previous versions came out looking fairly good on 300 Strathmore paper, looked like it was drawn by a child with markers. Don't waste your time on this, it will only disappoint you.
