I prefer to make my own study Bible so I purchased this Bible for the purpose of note taking and it is excellent for that with 1.25" margins. The paper is thick enough as long as you don't have a heavy hand. Additionally it has no cross references so you get to make your own. Great for a DIY Bible student.
I'm overall very pleased with this Bible. The paper is a little thin, but the line matching helps a lot. The cover is very limp, a little more than I'd prefer but that's really just my preference. Love the page layout.
Don't let the price fool you. This is a quality bible. It lives up to all it's claims, and then some. I bought this to replace my NASB Inductive Bible and could not be happier. I agree with the previous reviewers, but will comment that I didn't find it heavy. It's heavier than my travel bible, but definitely lighter than my NASB, which is massive. I found it quite similar in weight to the Adventure Bible my kids have.
