    Simon,

    I'm very happy Ilford listens to the voice of the customer. I try to support Ilford as much as possible. Before I get too excited, the emulsion remains critical. Since you are testing emulsions for the new support, let me suggest a warmish paper with increased contrast in the lower tone register vs the current contrast curve of Multigrade IV papers. Your new product would appeal to former Agfa/ Forte users as negatives tuned for Agfa/Forte Polywarmtone Plus papers don't fit Multigrade IV's curve.

    Paper curl when drying was my biggest bugbear with using FB papers. If this works I will be delighted to start using fibre again.

    My most recent box of Ilford FB MG IV glossy 11x14 is different from all those I have used previously. It gently wet-curls in the opposite direction (90 degrees different) from all previous boxes in the last five years, and it seems to have a somewhat different wet-drape and dry flatter with less tendency to curl. Box number was 25D770X54. Anybody else see a recent difference? Is this their new paper base at work? Anyone with similar experience?

    Folks: I contacted ILFORD directly and was told by the technical devision that there has not been a change in the paper base. I was told that it might be related to a difference in the direction of the cut of the paper from the roll, which can be random at times. ILFORD was very fast with several responses, which I very much appreciate. I have used their paper for more than ten years and will continue to do so. In my opinion it is great stuff and I hope it stays that way. We need such a high quality manufacturer to stay healthy and each do our part to be sure that happens. Bob

    Fotokemika Varycon and Foma MG Classic have a similar paper base in regards to drying flat. They dry somewhat flat similar to Agfa 111. Hope Ilford can tweak their paper base.
