I wanted some Platine last year and it was back ordered from September till December, then now in April Arches finally shipped the paper. I ordered a bit more than half of what they got it, but they have quite a bit.

The sent me a few sheets to test on Platinum and I just wanted to post and say I had no problems with the dreaded spots. I used both humidified paper and bone dry, as well as new and 8 month old chemistry.

It all worked flawlessly.

(YMMV) But just in case you wonder about the new supply of paper.
