B/W Prints from TMax 400CN

Has anyone one here printed on B/W paper w/ T400CN yet? I am wondering how the orange base affects contrast. Thanks!

I have been using it for some time, printing on both Polymax RC and Ilford Multigrade IV. Don't notice any effect, get pretty much whatever contrast I want using Ilford MG filters.

I've had the same experience using Polymax RC paper and Polymax filters.

Tmax 400CN

It is well known that Ilford XP2 requires higher contrast filtration than regular black and white film and I imagine that Tmax 400CN will be the same.
