There seems to be a thread on that lens over at LFPF...

25-30X from 2.25" x 5", are you sure? 6x12 at 25X roughly 56x112, I am not sure your 120 WA can handle that, at least with clarity...

No matter how you slice it, you are out of Apo-N territory at that point, only a 150 or 210 Rodagon G will be worth the paper you are printing on at that size. I went through the same maddening gear hunt when I decided that at some point, I want to be able to take advantage of 56" rolls of Ilford paper and had to wait quite awhile and spend some major bucks in getting both my 105 F5.6 Rodagon G and 150 F4 Apo-N, I ended up getting a 50 2.8 G for a song when I bought a set of three lenses from a guy...

I found a finished auction for a 150 Rodagon G from over a year ago, it went for $700, some have found them for less but despite what Bob Saloman says about big labs dumping them for peanuts, they have kind of dried up.

Aside from near-obssesive search strategies, you might want to put an ad up in one of a few macro photography forums, those guys tend to snatch them up too....maybe one of them is getting bored with mundane flower photos on his D-something or other and will part with it...
