RC is great for contacts and for making test prints. Also good for quick give aways. But if you like photo paper for the whole experience, then fiber is a must. It looks better and it feels better. Don't disregard the tactile.
A while back I tested all the fiber VC papers I could find. I wrote a couple of threads here at apug about it. I wasn't looking for a cheap paper, I was looking for a wonderful paper that had a nice color without toning. I've settled on Bergger VC CB. Not cheap and not available in large quantities, but unique. Print on 12 different fiber papers and they will all be a little different and much the same until you see Bergger VC CB. Just my opinion. No I don't work for Bergger.
