So... Tri-x is still giving me fits. I've even tried cutting the roll in half before hanging to dry and hanging at an angle after wiping once with fingers. I think the film needs perfectly even squeegee action or there are marks. This is not a problem with Ilford films, which I have mastered as posted above. So I've ordered a film squeegee (I know..) to try with Tri-x. I don't know what else to try. I love Tri-x but I'm frustrated at this point. It's worth a shot.
