Comments about Kentmere Select Variable Contrast Resin Coated Paper (8 x 10", Fine Luster, 250 Sheets):

Kentmere rc paper is quite good, it would be wonderful to have a RC paper closer to the gorgeous AGFA papers, they had a wonderful surface that was quite matt,and warm colour..please bring on that type of paper.
It is however very very encouraging that B&H still provide wet darkroom products....thanks a trillion.
