I agree completely.
At the cost of the PT & PD salts I hardly ever use anything other
than COT 320. Even with cyanotype, I have commercial work pressures so,
when I print cyano where the chems are cheap, my time is more valuable than
the difference in cost between COT 320 and cheaper papers. I am not saying
that one shouldn’t use other papers that have different qualities (surface
texture, color, thickness, translucence, etc) I am just saying that I use
what works best and keeps me from having to redo things.

Can't really add anything to the comments existing. I was stung with two
different batches of crap Platine about five years ago so lesson learned.
The Bergger Cot 320 might be more expensive but it's never trashed a day of

Ah, probably no.
I pounded (and wasted time) with old and new cyanotype and Platine
and was plagued with mottling...
I assumed "Good for Platinum, good for Cyanotype."
I did not try Pt/Pd, but I suspect I was seeing something similar
(similar "siderotype" process).
P.S. Unfortunately I was not undercharged...
