OK - I get what I would consider an acceptable image on the smooth side of W&N 140lb AWC rough. On the rougher side, I definitely wouldn't be happy with it, the leaves aren't coming out clearly. It's certainly stamped better on the Daler Rowney HP - (mine is just The Langton), and seeing it side by side with the wrong side of the W&N I'd pick the Daler one as better. But if I hadn't seen the Daler one I'd still be perfectly happy with the W&N . It's hard to make a totally like-for-like comparison because they're different shades of white, too! The Daler is less creamy, more white.
I guess that Daler is another one for me to keep an eye out for! Luckily I stocked up well on the Clairefontaine 90lb that goes through my printer when we were in Paris (and I like the lighter weight if I'm going to be cutting and layering ).
