    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.

I do load shorter loads of bulk film.
    Yeah, I agree, long rolls suck.

    For my money, the "newest" and current Tri-X and the "newest" and current TMY-2 are way closer to one another than the previous versions of each were. Looks to me like Tri-X has a bit more grain and a bit less shadow detail (toe falls off faster). The tendency of the previous TMY to blow highlights seems to be gone, as is the tendency to reproduce thin mid-tones.
