    I have found the new TMY to fix faster (i.e., clear the pink) than my TMX. (I don't have an old TMY to compare to.) Anyone else?

    I, too, think it sounds bad. I would use a snip test of leader to see what the clear time is. As the sticky note topic on the top of the forum page shows, fixing and T-grains are an ongoing challenge and topic.

    If the film leader didn't clear within a minute, something is wrong. I use Ilford Hypam, which is supposedly similar to Ilford Rapid fixer. After close to 20 rolls of film with the same 2 liter batch of working solution, it still clears a film leader in about 30 seconds. When it starts to approach a minute I discard it and mix fresh.
    It should take nowhere near that long to clear. I would follow Simon's advice and take it back.
