I got burned using some outdated Agfa APX25 not so long ago, so with film I don't play that game anymore. All fresh and available Kodak TX / TXP, and Ilford FP4 (a few sheets and rolls of Foma but once they're gone I know my two favorites).

With paper, I guess I have a load of Grade 2 and 3 Portriga (thanks, you know who you are) for lith printing, as well as some Azo G2 that I hope to use once I get my 5x7 rig going (a nice Century No2 that I got here for $75).

Great post, by the way!
