I don't like HP5+ in 35mm as it's too grainy, but it's OK in 120. FP4+ is my most used film (read - there's a lot of it in my fridge!), but Acros is the one I will miss when it runs out. I've tried Tri-X with HC110, but I don't get anything like the quality that Simon Ess gets from that combo. I've previously tried Delta 100 and 400, but went back to FP4+. I got a couple of rolls of Delta 100 and Fomapan 400 when I was in Ffordes last week, so they'll be getting trialed at some point and I guess I'm looking for Delta 100 to be an Acros replacement.
Good idea to check out Delta 100 as a substitute for Acros when my last rolls of that have expired (I only have it in 135... but that's 99% of what I shoot, anyway). IIRC @steveo_mcg reported pretty reasonable reciprocity characteristics, though not as good as Acros, obviously. I've tried Delta 100 a couple of times before; once was an expired roll that @srichards gave me, and I absolutely loved the results, but next time with a fresh roll it was just meh. Probably the light but it really prejudiced me against the Delta films.
