Microdol X 1:3 is much differnt than Microdol stock, at higher dultions Microdol is very sharp, Berry Thorton in Edge of Darkness lists the Ilford version at 1:3 for shapness. With modern films I would not recommend Microdol stock, but for that matter I would not use D 76 stock, which is how I wound up with bags of Microdol and D 76 replenisher. The draw back to Microdol X at 1:3 is the prolonged development times which may lead to base fog.
