The general stain with PMK depends on the film. I find that Delta 100, Delta 400 and Pan-F Plus have very little general stain, FP-4 and HP-5 Plus have more, and Tri-X and Plus-X have the most, of the films I've tried with it.

Despite the general stain, I find that negatives from any of these films (except the Deltas, which I haven't really dialed in yet) are very printable. The quality of the image from the negative is not inversely proportional to the general stain, despite what a person's instincts might be.
