Well, this news really stinks.
I guess it is like Dick Arentz says, any change in papers is
always for the worse when it comes to pt/pd printing.

It was more pronounced where the coating was thinner along the edges

Yes, I was just printing with some COT320 paper last week, and I
wondered if they-- like everybody else-- had somehow changed the
make-up of the paper. I usually order it from 2 different
places-- depending on who has it-- although it should all originate
from the same central place (right?)-- but, yes, I did notice a
difference. I have some bigger paper that I haven't opened and
was going to try that today to see if there was a difference. I
was using a batch of 11x14 before. I had to keep brushing over
the same spots to get over the beading/ I also noticed that
I was getting this grainy look which I had never before seen
with that paper. I switched to a brand new brush, a brand new
tray, and I even made up some new developer-- wondering if one or the
other had been contaminated in some way. I was also using
negatives I'd used before-- with no problem-- and still, I got this
graininess. I'm hoping that doesn't happen with this different
size-- and was thinking I just got bad batch or something-- who
knows. I do wish paper/film manufacturers would simply leave a
good thing alone. Too much to ask, I guess.
