Pyrocat is an other thing on my (long) list of "things still to do".
And if you have had good results with Pyrocat and Fp4+, why not try this myself?
(Mixing won't be a hassle for me)
I mix Pyrocat HD myself, but you can buy it from the Photographers Formulary either as a powder kit or mixed as liquids. The advantage that it has is it's a staining developer. This means part of the image is made up of stained gelatin along with the rest being silver grains. Because there is less silver grain you get smoother, less grainy, images. Probably best to try it out for yourself to see if it works well for you.
