Where grain is concerned, there was a time netween the last Tri-X reformulation and the introduction of TMY-2. I am not the only person who found that with certain developers Tri-X had finer grain than TMY. Things changed when TMY-2 appeared. It has finer grain than the current Tri-X. As far as tonality, contrast etc. are concerned, that's up to each user.
Yeah, I agree, long rolls suck. :whistling:

The tendency of the previous TMY to blow highlights seems to be gone, as is the tendency to reproduce thin mid-tones.
