I am looking to get a sense of the accumulated experience and insight of this forum into a matte paper choice. I am looking for roll matte paper to feed a 7600 that will not switch from matte black ink.
Of the photo papers I have either tried or heard about that I am thining about are:
Hahnemuhle photo rage bright white 310
Innova Smooth cotton High white 315
Innova Fibaprint Matte (Ultra smooth)
Moab Entrada bright white
Hawk Mountain Condor bright white 310
These are mostly 100% cotton papers, except for the Innova Fibaprint. I've been very happy with the Innova Fibaprint Semi-matte Satin on another printer, and an therefore considering the Matte. Does anyone have any experience with this fiber-baased matte paper? How does it compare, in your experience with the H. photo rag? (DMax, color gamut, flaking, etc.)
Further, if the 100% are ultimately a better choice, how do these 100% cotton paper compare? I just got a sample of the Hawk Mountain Condor, and it appears to have more surface texture than the HPR, which I am not sure is desirable. Does anyone know how the Innova smooth cotton and the Moab Entrada papers stack up? The Moab and Hawk Mouintain options are certainly a bit cheaper, but do you give up much by going to them? Are here other bight white matte paper, not listed here, that I should consider?
I appreciate all your input on this.
