Thanks again, Thomas. I appreciate your comments on T-Max films. I don't shoot much T-Max, but the roll the other night was shot at ISO 200 under bright rather high contrast conditions. My Xtol was 4 months old, stored in a wine bladder and mixed 1:2 and developed for 9 1/2 minutes. The fixer was Kodak Rapid Fixer and the clear test was around 2 1/2 minutes (still a bit opaque at that time, but both halves of test strip were equal). My total fix time was about 7 minutes. Results were not very clear, in my opinion.
