    I have never tried it, but never take other people's advice at face value, unless I know them and trust their opinion. Often times I find, like you have, Stone, that it's all just a matter of taste.
    For example, somebody told me HC110 and Foma200 was terrible, so I went ahead and tried it, and guess what... Wonderful prints, reminding me a bit of the old Tri-X.

    Great, I think now I MUST use ilfsol 3... though I really probably should use HC-110 on the first bunch since it's old AGFA from the 1960's in an old pack film graflock back... I wanted to try that first as a tester to learn how to operate the camera and process the film in my old FR tank while I wait a backorder for the MOD54... but I've had good success cutting base fog with Ilfsol 3 also, seems any ultra fast developer seems to cut down on base fog (so far as I've noticed from the few I've tried).

    But yes I agree. The thing is, I really want to standardize on just a few developers... I have so many and it's too overwhelming and you can't perfect your work with so many dev's to mix and match. I like Ilfsol 3 but just like DD-X it's expensive compared to Rodinal and HC-110 so I think I'll just use it up and stick with DD-X for my expensive developers. Ilfsol 3 really is a wonderful developer, but alas, not for my pocket or shelf any longer.

    Does it taste more like chocolate or raspberries?
