    Well this is news to me, I didn't realise that PWT was so fussy. This was a first run of prints so not many went through the fix.

    this can occur with any paper, not just the polywarmtone.

    Early last year (2007). No-one wanted to buy them.

    I heard it was a great paper. There is a camera store that has a few 11x14 50 sheet packs left...I was wondering if I should try it out.

    This seems to happen more with Warm-tone papers than other.

    I'd never really thought about it but it never happened at all when I first started in photography using Bromesko or Kodak Bromide paper, fixing in Sodium Thiosulphate fixers. Then using Ilford Galerie, Multigrade never a problem.

    As soon as I began using Record Rapid (Portriga) and by then only Ammonium Thiosulphateb fixers, 1985/6 fixing became more of an issue, that continued with Multi-Contrast Classic. (It's never an issue with RC papers). Forte Polywarmtone seems more susceptible, it's a thicker paper base.

    Some people fix in Ammonium Thiosulphate fixers and then use a plain Sodium Thiosulphate bath prior to washing, that seems to make a lot of sense.

    I had it happen with polywarmtone RC. While I agree, that proper fixing is not trivial with all papers, polywamtone seems to be extra picky.

    What shop? I'd be very interested in purchasing it.

    If you decide that it isn't your cup of tea, let me know. I'll take it off your hands.
    Thanks.
