I asked this question on another thread and thought perhaps the response would be greater if it was it's own topic.  The paper sounds as though it does what Innova, Hahnemuhle and Crane all claim which is an archival paper that looks and feels like traditional fiber based darkroom paper.  After a bit of research I found that the paper isn't new and has been around for two years or more.  One contributer to the forums recommends it highly, how many other photographers are using it and what are your impressions?

I tested the paper with an Epson 2200 some time ago and found the bronzing to be disturbing, although the weight and feel of the paper is nice.
Other than that, I think the paper is too glossy - which is a personal preference. I like semi-gloss or satin papers much better (for b/w work). Although the remaining sheets are still around, I don't feel like wasting ink on them. I could try the paper with an Epson 2400 now and have not done that yet.
Maybe I will, if I have nothing else to print on late at night. :-))

I should have been more specific as to the use.
Fuji Pro (Gloss, best resolution and color of any paper) for high quality color Photographs
Oriental FB Gloss (Look and feal of a darkroom print) for traditional looking color photographs
Innova F Gloss (Fine Art semi Gloss) for fine art style color and B&W photographs
Innova Soft textured art (Matt) for art work, pastels
Hahnemuele William Turner (Matt) for B&W photographs
only one opinion! I wish more people would share their likes and dislikes.

Thanks Marc, I ordered a box due in around the middle of the week.  By this time next week I should have an opinion on the paper.  It's a mystery to me why this product hasn't been embraced by the photo community!  I stopped printing with my 2200 because of the problems Angela mentioned, I'm not sure about bronzing but I know that the gloss differential would be considerable.  Jim

The paper arrived today and I've made a couple of prints with my Canon 9000.  The detail is good, the weight is good, it is pretty darn glossy, not an air-dryed look.  The image I printed had large amounts of black in the background which on the surface showed a scuffed appearance when the light reflected off of it.  I printed the same image on Hahnemuhle Fine Art Pearl which had deeper blacks and stilll great detail.  It too had it's own subtle surface anomaly but by no means was as distracting as the Oriental product.  Unfortunately, I still haven't found that perfect air-dryed F surface inkjet paper yet.
