    I must agree with David, you should search the site. That said, I love APX 100. I just did a roll in Rodinal 1+50 for 18 min (5 min pre-soak) and the negs look great.

    I can't offer you any info on your other materials, however, what is Adox CHS 25? Is it the same as Efke 25? Never heard of this one.

    I have been testing Lucky 100 in 120 as replacement for Plus X 120, I have used D76, Edwal 12, and Defender 777, I don't have the times nailed down but I like Edwal 12. Lucky has a rather thick base, but it reminds me of Varichrome Pan. For the price a good daily use film.

    Hello,

    Familiar products, names at least... Maybe you have been doing some catalog shopping from fotoimpex?? That's my number one hobby beside photography...

    Well, to the point. I received yesterday order from fotoimpex, including over 12^2 that adox paper on your list. It was the warmtone version. Haven't printed anything yet, but the paper is forte made. You can find much info of it with that hint.

    Btw, that turapan film is Agfa APX, like the catalog says.

    Be aware that judgments of products are very subjective. One person might love a product while another one hates it. If you're looking for specific qualities (fine grain, high acutance, etc.), you might want to say what you want to help others comment on those features.

    - Adox CHS 25 iso
    - Maco ORT 25 iso
    I'm not positive, but I believe the only ISO 25 B&W film still being produced is made by Efke. If I'm right, these two are just rebadged Efke 25. I've only shot a couple of rolls of Efke 25. I really liked the first roll, but the second produced very dense negatives that were hard to print. I suspect with some practice I'd get satisfying negatives most of the time.

    - Orwopan 125
    I'm pretty sure that this is rebadged Ilford FP4+. The last I heard, Ilford had stopped supplying film for third-party rebadging, so it may be disappearing under the "Orwo" name pretty soon.

    - kodak Xtol
    I've developed a few rolls in XTOL, but not enough to have a really good handle on how it compares to other developers. XTOL does have the reputation for being a fine-grained and speed-preserving (or even slightly speed-enhancing) developer. OTOH, it also has a reputation for suddenly failing, so if you use it, be extra careful how you mix and store it, and do a "snip test" to be sure it's still active before you use it to develop any important film.
