Yea, I just tried Epson Ultra smooth last night.. results were a
disaster. Way too absorbent.. for an 8x10, I normally use 32 drops total
and a glass rod. I barely pushed it 4 inches across and the chemistry
was gone.

Think I'll stick with the COT 320 for now

I made some Van Dyke Browns on Epson Heavyweight Matte last
year. I would describe the experience as unsatisfactory. The paper
is *enormously* absorbent, and long before the paper becomes
saturated, the clay coating comes loose and starts smearing
round. The image was crisp, but discolored in areas. Discoloration
and fading were severe after a year -- so bad that I threw the prints
out recently.
