I use Acros all the time.  It is a wonderful long scale film that holds
detail across maybe nine stops when developed in Xtol 1:3 for around 17
minutes at 68F.  You will find extremely fine grain but not a lot of
contrast, especially edge contrast a la Rodinal and Tri-X.  Like most
modern films you can find printable detail in what appears to be almost
clear base.  Even really thin negatives can produce reasonable images.

Chris was correct, if the ad does not explicitly say that it is Acros,
then you are getting a really old Fuji emulsion that is not in the same
