HP5+ for me. It's just so versatile. I rate it at 200, 400 or 800 (and very occasionally 1600 depending on the circumstances. It also responds well in different developers.

I've developed it in ID11 at 1+1 before IIRC I rated it at 1600 and developed it as if it were 3200. My notes say 12 mins at 20 degrees. I can't remember where I got the time from and I didn't write...
