My first combo wth Rodinal was AP100 & AP25. I had to print an old neg for an exhibition about 4 or 5 years ago and the AP25/Rodinal combination was just incredibly sharp and tonal, that was 129.
With LF there's no APX100 until Fotoimpex begin to coat it again, under the Adox brand name, when stocks of 35mm run out. But Tmax 100 in Rodinal is equally as good, just use at 50 EI and the times for APX100 @ 100EI.
I'd add also suggest you look at Sandy King's Pyrocat HD, it's a very versatile developer and gives excellent acutance and fine grain. It's a modern developer with an old twist - it's a staining developer.
