In this Rocketbook Everlast review, I will introduce the major features of the digital notebook and other things you should know. Plus, you will learn my analysis of customer reviews on the Rocketbook products. You can also see the changes in people’s interest in these smart notebooks over the past 5 years, which can indicate the quality of the products.
Rocketbook is a smart notebook that can connect to the Internet and send your hand-written memo to its app. The firm and the products were designed in Massachusetts by two people – Joe Lemay and Jake Epstein. In 2015, the two men produced Rocketbook Wave that can be erased by microwave and Rocketbook Everlast that is endlessly reusable. According to its website, Rocketbook is the number 1 selling notebook on Amazon. The firm has raised over $5 million in crowdfunding campaigns.
Rocketbook Everlast is not the only product the firm has. As of February 2020, Rocketbook has:
- Rocketbook Fusion ($65)
- Rocketbook Everlast ($55)
- Rocketbook Everlast – Lined Pages ($55)
- Rocketbook Everlast Mini ($29.95)
- Rocketbook Wave ($45)
- Rocketbook Color ($39.95)
- Rocketbook One ($34.95)
I will talk about these notebooks briefly. Since this is Rocketbook Everlast review, let’s find out about the three Everlast notebooks.
As the name of the notebook indicates, this Rocketbook product series was designed to make reusable notebooks. Although it will not last forever, you can use it repeatedly for years. The Everlast pages were made with synthetic materials for the extremely smooth writing experience.
Like the other types of Rocketbook products, Everlast provides users with the look and feel of traditional paper notebooks. As the name says, the notebook can be reused over and over. You can connect Everlast to most of the popular cloud services.
How to delete writings
A Rocketbook Everlast comes with a Pilot FriXion pen and a microfibre cloth. When you write with any Pilot Frixion pen, your writings attach Everlast pages like normal notebook paper. When you drop a droplet of water, you will be able to see your writings start to be deleted. Moisturize the cloth and wipe your writing.
Supported cloud services
You can take a photo of a notebook page using the Rocketbook app to upload the contents into Google Drive, OneDrive, OneNote, iCloud, Evernote, Dropbox, Box, and Slack. For writing and scanning, all the pages of Everlast have dot grids.
Rocketbook Everlast has two sizes.
- Letter Size: 8.5 in x 11 in (21.59cm x 27.94cm), 32 pages
- Executive Size: 6 in x 8.8 in (15.24cm x 22.35cm), 36 pages
The two sizes have the same price.
Rocketbook Everlast has four colors.
- Infinity Black
- Atomic Red
- Midnight Blue
- Neptune Teal
Rocketbook Everlast – Lined Pages
The Everlast series has two additional versions. One of them is Lined Pages. The color of this product comes in infinity black only and all pages have lines. The rest is the same.
Rocketbook Everlast Mini
Mini is the smaller version of Everlast. Its size is 3.5 in x 5.5 in (8.89cm x 13.97cm) and it has 48 pages. All the rest are the same as Everlast.
Customer Reviews Analysis
When you consider to buy a product or to use a service, you will wonder what experiences other buyers had. Investigating the reviews of other users can lead to a better decision, and it is a wise thing to do as a consumer. If people are dissatisfied with it, they will complain about it and won’t recommend it. If they are happy, they will leave positive comments and share their great experiences. If we can compile and analyze those reviews, we can have an assurance about the product or the service.
That’s what I am going to do for you. I used more than 1,000 reviews people left on Amazon and summarized those data to generate easy-to-understand graphs and charts. Those visuals will allow you to understand the overall sentiments the customers had toward the smart notebook. They are also extremely easy to understand.
Please note that those reviews, however, were not only for Rocketbook Everlast but for other notebook lines as well.
Positive Rocketbook Word Cloud
In a word cloud, some words will appear bigger because those specific words were more frequently used among customers. So, the bigger the more frequent, thus, if those big words are positive, it proves that most of the customers had a positive experience. Have a look at the word cloud of the Rocketbook notebooks.
The word cloud above should have given you a good impression of their products. The most frequent word that actual customers used in their reviews was “great”. Other big words are also positive – “love”, “amazing”, “perfect”, “best”, and many more. Just by looking at the word cloud, we can learn that most of the people were satisfied with their product.
Among the words, “reusable” stood out to me since it is one of the conveniences that Everlast has and users frequently mentioned it in the positive word cloud.
The word cloud tells you what descriptive words people used for the product. There is another angle we can use to understand the Rocketbook customer reviews. That is by categorizing the reviews into a type of 10 sentiments. While I used the review titles for the word cloud above, I used the review contents for the sentiment analysis. The result is the graph below.
I was able to run my sentiment analysis code to find out what specific sentiments people had over the Rocketbook notebooks. As we could guess from the word cloud, more than half of the review contents were positive. Of course, people shared negative experiences. I haven’t seen any review that is all positive. Despite the negative reviews, overall, people left positive comments on the Rocketbook products.
Rocketbook Interest Trend
Another type of analysis I often use for a product review is using Google Trend. It is an extremely helpful service by Google that gives you a historical Google search trend. The idea is that if a product or a company can maintain or can increase its search volume over many years, it supports the quality of the product. If a product is bad, people won’t show their interest and eventually will never search for the product anymore. Then, how is the trend of Rocketbook? Plus, how has people’s interest in general been changed?
The blue line shows the changes in the Google search volume of “Rocketbook” and the red line for “Rocketbook Everlast” over the past 5 years. Since the blue line is the brand name, it has had much more search volume, and it has been on the rise. The red line, on the other hand, had a smaller volume, but it still has had constant volume over the same period.
From the trend graph, we can see that more and more people kept searching about Rocketbook, which is a good indicator of the product and brand quality.
Note that this is a global trend that does not come from the U.S. only. If we break down by country, it looks like below. The biggest interest came from the United States followed by Switzerland, Singapore, Canada, and Israel.
Rocketbooks ships internationally so check their website if it’s available in your country.
So far, we have learned the product details of Rocketbook Everlast products and customer sentiments toward them. In the remaining section, let’s look at other Rocketbook products.
If you want plain notebook pages, Everlast is great. But, if you want to have different templates within one notebook, you may want to consider Rocketbook Fusion. It has 7 different templates such as:
- 1 Task List Page
- 2 Weekly Planner Pages
- 1 Monthly Calendar Page
- 1 Objectives and Key Results Page
- 1 Ideas Page
- 18 Dot-Grid Pages
- 18 Lined Pages
Yes, that’s why the firm named the product as Fusion. Just like Everlast, it has two different sizes – Letter and Executive. Although the sizes are different, both have the same number of pages – 42.
- Letter Size: 8.5 in x 11 in (21.59cm x 27.94cm) / 42 pages

Fusion comes in one color that is Infinity Black. One Pilot FriXion pen and microfibre cloth are included. The way of deleting your writing and uploading it to the cloud is the same. This notebook is the most expensive model – $65.
Rocketbook Wave is erasable by a microwave. The convenience happens when you just put the notebook and microwave to erase all writings at once. It’s different from Everlast that requires you to wipe writings by cloth. It is, however, reusable up to 5 times. It has one color option which is blue and comes in two sizes – Standard and Executive.
