I don't have a good answer but in case you didn't know the Formulary sells BW-65:

You could try that for a test. I've used it in the past and would say it was softer working compared to Dectol. Same with the phenidone based Bromophen. Blacks seem more open but it's probably just a contrast matching problem testing vs Dectol.
