Depends what you use it for
Really smooth and really white paper.
As to be expected for 50% cotton paper it is not as robust as the all cotton ones so select your technique carefully. It will take some coloured pencil before giving up, but not as much as the bockingford hot press does, and it will take quite dry watercolour. Not really up to techniques involving lots of water, scrubbing or layers but is good for details. Think Anna Mason technique not Billy Showell if you are looking at this for botanical watercolour. (This review is for paper from before Fabriano changed their manufacturing - I haven't tried the new one yet.)
