No, I meant that I bought a single roll of tmax as a cheaper alternative to buying 50 sheets of 8x10.
My two concerns about tmax are:
1. It reputation as requiring precise development, tri-x is more forgiving if I don't get exposure/development quite right.
2. tonal range - a subjective thing, will I like the tonal range of tmax in a finished print as much as I like tri-x?
I'm going to start slowly with contacts of roll film, rather than buy a $150 dollar box of 8x10, only to find that I don't like it.
