It's all I use. I started out with the deluxe kit from Mann Lake, and it came with rite cell foundation, I love it.
I have 1 hive that I inherited that has wired wax, I'll keep it until I start changing out the frames, then I'll go with the rite cell. All the new stuff I will be putting into service next spring will be rite cell

The only problem I ran into using that type of foundation,is the bees were reluctant to draw out on them,that problem was solved by giving them an extra coat of wax using a small cut-in paint roller(3" wide).
Almost all of my frames are this type.

First year my 2 colonies on rite cell drew the comb faster than 3 colonies on wax foundation.
Second year switched to PF 100 and PF 105 from Mann Lake. Used them in brood boxes, as well as in honey supers. (I use deeps only, except for cut comb honey) Very satisfied.
