I went with Xtol 1+3, as per advice from someone at my photography store but I do not think that some of the other combinations that you guys use is necessarily less suitable. They print pretty well too (this is a scan but prints look no worse IMO).
Beautiful print with lots of detail! Very nice.
I _love_ Tri-X @ 1000, developed in Acufine, stock dilution. I prefer it to Microphen but honestly I can't quite put my finger on it. Stuff lasts forever and you can replenish it.I have developed Tri-X @ 1600 in Acufine, the results were acceptable. Even pretty decent.
Here are Kodak's recommendations for push processing this film.
Agree!! Stuff lasts forever, prints lovely!

^Opps looks like OP went Xtol, missed that. Looks like it worked out too
Another vote for Diafine. Tri-X @ 1250. Works like a charm. Expose for the shadows and let the 2-bath action protect the highlights from blowing out. Just don't agitate.
Diafine is at it's best once you've put a few rolls though it so it ripens. Midlife Diafine is pretty amazing.
TMY-2 400 @1250 or 1600 is in some ways even better...
