But only part of the charm BD - in larger formats (and 35mm to some extent),
especially with Tri-X 320, the "charm" has more to do with Tri-x's unique
curve characteristics.

Now, no one has tested the new Tri_X in larger sizes as far as I know to see
if the curves are the same. And I don't think the Tri-X 320 is even out
there in sheet sizes yet, so we don't know if it has been "improved" in the
same way as the Tri-X 400 has.

Of course, in roll and sheet sizes grain isn't so much of an issue - the
curves are more important. But I think most users would be happy with Tri-X
320 with a bit less grain if that happened to be the case.
