Whats the faster (higher ISO) b&w darkroom papers out there??

Been getting into more pinhole photografy latly with my 4x5" camera.
Use it with b&w darkroom papers which works great, while the long exposure can look great for moving clouds etc they can easaly get unpracticly long.
So a higher ISO paper would be helpful.

Have used:
Fomaspeed variant 312 paper @ISO 6
Ilford RC MGX.1M @ about ISO 2

Could squeeze a stop extra out of these papers but results have been really high contrasty then.

I remember i have used following website as a reference
http://www.plumeltd.com/artzone/paperzone/paper.htm

Few years ago i got a pack of AGFA MULTICONTRAST CLASSIC from Macodirect and it was very fast - something like iso 400.

A fast paper like that would be great but I'm guessing this is not made anymore?
Thanks for the link!
