My Tri-X results were OK at 100ASA but not great. And no, I am not comparing them with factory results and I am not expecting the same – what I am doing is comparing them with what others have got developing themselves with Dektol or D19, for example plus hypo. I've simply seen better than what I am getting with similar process and trying to understand why.

But I'm not complaining as you seem to be implying – I just want to get the best results I can, understand how to do that and learn about the process along the way. I've worked some on Tri-X, enjoyed it, learnt quite a bit and now I am now testing Adox Pan-X with D19 with hypo to see what i can do with that.
And yes, I am adding hypo to Pan-X as the image had a grey veil on top of a strong black image – very unlike the Tri-X thin greyness. The hypo in this case made the image come alive.
