Default Floppies printed on newsprint

And TPBs on higher quality paper.

What do you guys think?

That would depend heavily on how much cheaper that made the floppies. If they weren't much cheaper, then I assume even MORE people would "trade wait" than do now. Can they even afford to keep printing the floppies if too much of the audience goes to strictly trades?

I like the new paper, but I'd trade it for a good savings.

I remember when trades were newsprint too. My collected edition of Emerald Dawn is on newspaper.

If DC would do it and knock a dollar off their price, I bet it would hurt Marvel.

Only a fool would pay $3.99 for a Marvel comic when he could buy a comparable DC comic for $1.99. Marvel would suffer a big hit in sales, and would be forced to copy DC and switch to newsprint too.
