Give it a whirl...with the right subjects I'll bet it's an amazing combination.
HP5 + in Rodinal is OK and my wife used this combo for about 2 years whilst I did HP5+ in Xtol. Side by side comparisons at 10x8 showed better results in Xtol (used neat). Having had Rodinal in the darkroom for a large number of years I would say it is more suited to slower films unless you are looking for grain. Also Rodinal is super for most infrared films. That is what I use it for these days. A very good developer all the same - give it a go it may be what you looking for.
