I'm interested to see that HP5 is the favourite by a long way; Ive never found it very favourable. I much prefer the look of FP4+, which easily pushes to 400.

I think I have exactly what you need. Almost unused and in its original box. I was about to put it on eBay, but you can have it for 65 plus postage (or collect, as I am not too far away from you)....

I can't believe that the Blix melted the bottle. I often re-use them, and there is no sign of deterioration in the plastic. Maybe it was a faulty bottle.
