An acquaintance sent Clayton an email and asked to confirm, and they did.

No film developer is going to 'knock you out'. Remember, the neg is only an intermediary. I have prints from negs made with that developer, and I have nothing but good experience to tell, after i used it for a while and did the usual tweaking.

I guess I'm the kind of guy that likes to claim that the end results are 95% about skill and 5% about materials.

But one man's ceiling is another man's floor. You're not wrong and I'm not necessarily right. Hope you found something else that works well.
