I would recommend a good proofing paper with the
same substrate color/feel as your printing paper.
For coated HQ-stock our favorite is Cast-coated
PerfectProof Commercial Proofing Paper 200g and
for magazines the resin-coated Publication
Proofing Paper 270g. They are very printing-paper
like, contain few optical brighteners (less
metamerism), and have a large gamut:
Commercial proofing paper gamut exceeds both GRACoL DTR004 and ISO 12647-2
Publication proofing paper gamut exceeds PSR GravureLWC and ISO (type 1&2)

L-values are a little bit higher (ISO 97 vs. 94.8
and PSR 97.9 vs. 91.0), but this is seldom an

a backup contract proofer.
The paper I looked at was called Proof Line,
there were a wide variety of papers available.
They claimed the paper was dual purpose for Dye
