If you like Tri-X, try Fuji Neopan 1600. It has a finer grain than Delta 3200 and a feel to the prints I'd associate more with a traditional (i.e older) 400 film, like Tri-X. I'm told it has a similar response curve to Tri-X. Not as good to print as Tri-X, though, in my limited experience of it. Better than TMax 3200, though. I'd develop in Xtol, probably rating the film at a little less than 1600. I've had good results rating it at 1200, diluted 1:1, developing for around 7 minutes.
