    I recall seeing SPUR products on the Retro site so I checked but only HRX-2 seems to be available and I am assuming HRX-3 and HRX-2 are quite different brews? I am sadly ignorant about such chems. You could try contacting Retro by phone but be warned that a number of people here have expressed frustration with unanswered telephone calls.

    Best of luck with your quest

    Spur HRX-3 is the improved version of HRX-2. HRX-3 has much longer shelf life (two years) and gives a bit finer grain with higher speed films than HRX-2.
    HRX-3 is an outstanding developer, especially for the Ilford Deltas, Kodak TMX and TMY-2,Agfa APX100/ Rollei Retro 100 and Fuji's Neopans. The data sheet from Spur is very precise. I am very satitisfied. One of the best developers on the market.
    If you can't get it in the UK (have you already ask at Robert White?) order it from Germany: www.monochrom.de, www.macodirekt.de .

    I ordered it from Maco Direkt a few weeks back. I couldn't find it anywhere in the UK. Maybe you'll have better luck than me! Retrographic seem to have heavily pruned their stock list, so there's not so much choice of chemicals from them anymore.
