I've posted some test shots from the 120 in this thread:

and you can find some from 5x7" in my APUG gallery:

A beautiful film, but indeed, requires careful handling. I only find that a real problem, though, with tray processing of sheet film.

Give the film a 2 min. presoak before developing to remove the blue/green dye.

I'm not sure what your point is about Tri-X. I would say that Classic 400 is actually quite similar in some ways to TXT 320--the old Tri-X sheet film. If you don't like TXP, you might not like Classic 400.
