About All I Can Do To Show My Process .. the actual fixing the block in is intensive and I don't have time to stop and show step to step

Thank you for that info. Good to know. I order on line so I never see the other stock.
Ok. Now I know .. it's not XL that is the either or .. it's Canson and yes, I have tried their canvas pad but didn't like it as it is not as stiff or heavy weight as the paper.
