Yes, this guy has a problem, but for sure, it is not Tri-X.  It is 
how he uses Tri-X.
Trying to get this film fine grain makes it muddy. You'll have to 
learn to love grain.

BTW, I do not miss APX 25, now discontinued, it was so fine grained 
it was unsharp. I have about ten rolls 35 mm in the freezer and I 
will give them away for free to anybody who pays the postage from 
Hamburg, Germany.
