    I like Foma papers, another member recommended that I try Foma developers with it, perhaps somewhat more warm tone Dektol. I recommend tying a packet of 25 8X10 before buying 16X20, use a couple of differnt developers and toners to see how works for you.

    I normally go with Arista paper and I'm very happy with it. However it's around bucks for 16x20.

    I've used about a thousand sheets of Ultrafine Silver Eagle VC FB without any bad surprises. It offers a neutral tone image on a white paper base. Development is rapid and the paper responds to all my contrast filters from -1 to 5+. The unglazed glossy surface is nice. The paper has no particularly distinctive character so it does not impose itself on the final image . I like that.

    At this point I think Foma makes all of the house branded papers, Freestyle, Unltrfine, Mulittone, and Promaster. Just to make sure it is what you expect try a pack of 8X10.

    I think Arista EDU MG fiber sold by Freestyle is Foma. I use it and it's great paper. It's slightly warm to neutral in tone. Great value.
