It does not help if a manufacturer quotes weights in gsm on one page and lb on another page and the numbers do not correspond to one another nor to the real weight as measured. For example Aurora Natural is 230 gsm as measured on a balance. Excellent dual sided rag paper but sell it on the correct weight, it still is good value.
