    I tried it out last year along with several other warm tone papers trying to find one to stock my fridge with and it was in the final running. It is pretty similar to Ilford WT and Oriental WT. It doesnt have quite as glossy a surface though it might be a bit smoother. Not something to reject it over. I foun it to have nice color processed in a cold tone developer and it was about the same as the Oriental. The thing that made me reject it in favor of the Oriental was #1 the price and #2 when I processed it in a warm tone developer the color went sort of lemony yellow. I liked the Oriental and Ilford color better in the warm tone developer. I did not try the Foma in Ansco 130 but I suspect it would be pleasant warm.
