    Can anyone compare the surfaces of these two papers? The reason I ask is that I love the Fomatone matte in FB and would like a rough equivalent in RC, but I detest MGIV matte in FB and RC (though I do like and use other Ilford papers). So, is the surface of Fomatone RC matte closer to Fomatone FB matte or MGIV RC matte? Thanks.

    Freestyle does sell a swatchbook of the Foma papers, which might be very useful to you.
