I have used RR & BC Metallic papers, both are fine products with small differences as mentioned above. For me, selecting a metallic paper for my B&W prints took serious consideration--prints containing large areas of deep shadow with detail appeared to suffer from visual 'flare' due to the reflecting pearlescent layer. Then, a week or so later, reexamining this print it appeared quite satisfactory. Color prints benefited quite nice from this 'feature'! Do not hesitate to try this metallic media.

Another fine media from BC is their Vibrance Luster, a slightly coarser structure than satin, still maintaining fine detail with vibrant 'pop'--awesome for my B&W prints.

I haven't tried BC Vibrance Metallic yet so I checked on their site and gave them a call. They told me they make their own papers and this stuff is very close to the Kodak metallic. I just ordered a 17" X 20' sample roll. They also have a canned ICC profile you can download. Sounds like a good outfit to do business with.
