"I may get hammered for this but I don't use Tri-X anymore. Anyone who says it is consistent is talking about the past"
That's what I experienced too. First with a box (=100 films) of TRI-X 135 where about 10% of the films were munched at the edge of the emulsion (that is near the perforations). No effects on the image itself but that was kind of confusing... This happened around 2009.
And now I currently have to deal with another box of TRI-X where the emulsion feels weird and rubbery.
Consequence? This makes the film hard to load into my M3, and let me tell after 5 or failed attempts at loading my camera with a snake-like film I start to get angry at Kodak.
This rubbery TRI-X problem never happened to me before...
