I use 1:9 for 4-5 minutes, ~72F. I pull it before there is any color change.

The blacks do develop extra density, there is just no color change as there is with some papers.

For max d-max you always want to pull before there is any color change. When the color begins to change the paper has already toned to d-max and is now on its way back down to it's starting density, just a different color.

To see d-max effects I find I need to compare toned and untoned prints when they are dried and mounted/flattened.
