Yeah, after posting that, I looked on the Daniel Smith web page, and the
280gsm stuff is called 'Rives BFK Heavyweight', while the 250 and 270gsm
stuff is called just 'Rives BFK' . Middleweight and Welterweight maybe? It
all seems to work, although my self-esteem might be higher if I move up to
the 280gsm on the next order.
