    I am hooked on Pyrocat MC for Tmax400 and Tri-x but have 40 sheets of 8x10 Acros to use up. Any body have any insight to share regarding Acros in Pyrocat??..Thanks..Evan Clarke

    I have tried Acros with pyrocat, but in the 120 size only. It is quite similar to the results I get with T-Max possibly a bit on the slick side.

    In my experience Acros developed semi-stand or minimum agitation in Pyrocat-MC is an excellent combination.

    I have used Pyrocat-HD with 8x10 Acros and had good results.

    I've tried this combination with 120 roll film and it is a really nice combination. I will be using it again.
