Personal preference with RC papers is for a pearl or lustre surface. Gloss is (IHMO) just too damn shiny!

I'm just starting out with FB and have only tried gloss finish with air drying. This is far better than the RC gloss, obviously I won't know how it compares with other FB finishes until I try 'em!

Personally I prefer Ilford Multigrade to the Jessops papers... ...and top tip if your college darkroom safelight is at all dodgy (ours was on a par with a sunlamp!); Ilford Multigrade RC Warmtone resists safelight flashing / fogging much better than the normal or Cooltone variants.
