    I've only made a few 5X7s on this paper but so far, I haven't liked it. Too cold, blue black and I don't seem to get much tonal separation or the scale that I should. The same negatives print nicely on Ilford MG IV RC. It's likely something I'm doing wrong. I use Dektol at 1:2

    If you're getting blue-black from Forte Polygrave V in Dektol 1:2 - my hat's off to you. I get an olive-green with this combo - which isn't unlike the tone I was getting with Ilford Multigrade IV Deluxe come to think of it. I get very blue blacks with the Sprint PQ stuff. YMMV, I guess.

    I use Polymax filters with my Polygrade V, btw, and I find most of my negs. print best at 2 1/2 or 3.
