    Yup. But, an internet forum will give me a few papers to try out that seem to work well. The problem is I really haven't kept up with *any* printing paper, so getting some starting points as reference here is a good thing.

    I'm trying out Kentmere Bromide G 2,3 and it looks really good when toned in selenium.

    I highly recommend trying the Forte Polygrade paper with Ansco 130. My paper of choice prior to it's removal from the market was Kodak Polymax FA FB.

    Isn't it nice that in this "digital" age we have so many choices? I'd look at Adox from JandC Photography. Great stuff. Also Varycon from Freestyle. Nice, and cheap! Dean

    There are actually loads of good papers about tho I am v sad about the demise of Agfa MCC - a wonderful allrounder.

    Fotospeed legacy is lovely as are the Forte papers (fortezo, polywt and polgrade all delicious). I a not a great fan of Ilford MG but that might just be that it curve does not suit how I dev my films, enlarger head, taste etc...I have some Zone 6 graded which I suspect is either gallerie or kentmere bromide as it is made in the UK and graded...must be one or tuther! Very rich lgowing paper with lots of depth.
