Daylight Darkroom versus quadtonable

As far as I can tell, these are basically the same product - ie the same ink. The daylight darkroom ink has an extra sticker on the box that says "daylight darkroom", and is typically sold in a kit with RIP and paper.

Quadtonable inks can be used without the RIP, by using curves in photoshop on a PC and the results for me were not good at all.However when I added the "RIP and the Lyson Darkroom gloss paper" (same ink) the results improved considerably.

I do love the finish and feel on the darkroom gloss paper but have now become dissatisfied with the number of surface flaws on large sheets (superB) of this paper. The paper is very thick, but very soft and hence apparently easily injured.

I just yesterday tried the lyson quadtonable inks with pictorico high qual gloss with really excellent results, esp when overcoated with the Luscaux product.
I will continue to experiment.
