Ilford 'PanF plus' reaction to flash light
Yes I think Pan F+ might have a slightly higher contrast just based on the 50ASA itself, because it's slower to respond to light, the heavier light will burn through before the mid tones are at the right spot.

At least 2 lights, its hard to do EVERYTHING with one light and doubling the duties of a head can have issues such as this. I think you would have been better off with a beauty dish. If you notice with that there is a center disk that blocks the direct light if the bulb itself so you probably should have done the same with your open octagon. Even just adding a diffusion gel just in front of the head would probably help.
I wasn't there so it's hard to tell. Now a days I've been taking one wide shot of my setups so I can reference if something goes wrong.
