    I looked at it a couple of minutes after it was done and barely a line, come back another 5 mins later and there was a good (but not positive) line.
    Are they like hpts where you can't look after 10 minutes? I'm guessing not since people keep them throughout their cycle to show progression?

    ^^^same here. I think they can dry darker, so I would follow the instructions exactly.

    I also use the wondfos and they say 5 minutes, after that I usually toss them out.

    I dont have a problem with not knowing, my line is either lighter than or darker than the control with the wondfo, and they turn up right away as well
