Paterson make it in England. Designed by Geoffrey Crawley. Dilution is about 1+9
for most films. Recently resurfaced in US distribution by Tiffen (the filter
people). Contact them for info. Fabulous stuff. Highly recommended! Better than
rodina: More consistent. Finer grain. Paterson also manufacture FX-39 for
tab-grain films (Delta, T-Max, etc).

You can read about it in "The Film Developing Cookbook" by Troop/Anchell.

I have that book...very good book.  I wish there was more information on the
developers.  I could only find a short mention on page 57 (chapter 6) of the
Anchell book.  Seems like it would be worth a try.  Now I must locate a
supplier. Thanks for the tip.  By the way, what do you like about the Acutol
developer?  Also, have you ever tried it with Agfapan film?
