    Lee, I haven't had problems with Agfa papers, IMHO they are one of the longer lasting papers.
    They just change the look of the boxes recently, the last one I bought (about 4 wks ago) had a picture of 2 guys in the front.... guess that tells you the date somehow


    According to the agfa webiste SELL BY DATE has been added to the paper labels.

    Ditto for me. No problems with Agfa paper.

    Are you sure your developer is OK? Right formula? Right dilution? Too old?

    I have first hand knowledge of older Agfa MCC paper...

    I just used some that is 5+ years old, stored in my basement darkroom. Just printed some 16x20s (something I do VERY rarely, hence the old paper) and the white is clean and clear.

    So far so good after over 5 years that I'VE owned it... Who knows how long it was at Agfa before that...

    Polymax also underrated

    I agree with the post about Polymax Fiber...I was encouraged to give it a shot this week by a colleague who prints for a living here in Prague...I came to the conclusion that I prefer it to Oriental for my choice of cold-tone papers...I think that somehow its not hip to like the papers in the yellow box, so you never hear about them or from people who use them. I for one am convinced... and the F surface is fantastic in selenium.

    Polymax F has a prominent surface texture not seen in other papers.
    It adds to the quality of the image since it actually looks like paper IMHO

    Kodak has quit the black & white photography manufacture.
