Bearing in mind the difference in labeling that Zvonimir mentions, if you are used to G2 with other papers, you may prefer the middle grade of Emaks (G3 from Freestyle). I tend to use more G2 than G3 and very little G4, but others use G3 as their normal grade. G2 is a little softer than other G2 papers, and G3 is a little harder. I think when J&C was selling it they called the middle grade "Normal," though Cachet and Maco labeled it G3, and Freestyle labels it G3.
