Never tried it, but apparently Arista Premium 400 Black and White film is rebranded Tri-X....and costs half as much. Arista 100 is also Plus-X.
The Arista.edu.ultra is not Kodak however it is Fomapan either 100 or 400. Freestyle uses Arista as its house brand so one must provide the full name as film type changes due to that.

I should have specified Arista Premium, not edu ultra.

My comments were more or less meant as a general warning for people not familiar with Freestyle's brand. edu.ultra is really cheap and not a bad film although in medium format it curls like it was designed to do so.

...but in 4x5 sheets, it is quite flat and a good material for learning purposes (the .EDU part of the name...quite possibly the best value in 4x5 film on the planet).
