Agfa Copex rapid film

I read an article in the October 2005 issue of Black & White Photography on high-resolution film..e.g.Agfa Copex Rapid. Sounded interesting so I ordered two rolls from J&C along with the recommended developed, SPUR Nanospeed.
I was wondering if anyone had tried this combination? What were your results?

Check with Donald Qualls (at APUG)
He uses this film and has developed a developer for it.
His results were impressive.
When I think back of all the crappy pictures I've taken, it's a wonder I can see at all......
APX It gives us the nicer grays/It gives the cleanes whites/Makes you think all the world’s a sunny day, oh yeah/I got a nikon camera/I love to take a photograph

Thanks to all. I have a feeling this is going to be a one-shot deal for me. I think it'll probably work better for certain subjects than others--finding which is which may take too long..
I also love(d) APX 25.

Just shot a whole roll of this with the Zeiss Biogon 25mm in the Saturn V hangar @ Kennedy Space Center. Still scanning and this was far from ideal conditions (hand-holding and low light) but the shots certainly have "something". What I like about them is the contours . The resolution is there as well but the hand-holding hasn't helped - I need to shoot some of this stuff on a sunny day with a tripod. Example:

This is straight off the scanner (Coolscan 8000ED, cropped to edges of film and with just auto-contrast applied)
Currently using:

Nikon D700
Lenses: Nikon 50mm f/1.2 AIS, Nikon 85mm f/1.4
