    I can't quite understand the apparent omission of the "red tab" information...?

    I routinely strip the anchoring tape from the film - in those cases where, in error, I have not - I can't notice one damn whit of difference.
    Previously I wrote that I use patterson reels but I, like Ed use Jobo and I've never had overlap either. I do remove the tape because I'm anal and know that Murphy is out to get me.

    Perhaps the Paterson don't have the little red tab.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Nope, Patterson does not have that little red thingy.

    I take a pair of scissors with me into my changing room. Also, I only do one roll per reel. I take no chances.
