    Those are mwhat we call a**holes.... they are caused when the film gets a fold in it and sort of "pops" This actually causes a small exposure on the film due to a small slip of speed across the surface of the film.I get them some. One needs to see this by making a fold in a piece of paper and trying to pull the fold out. Sometimes you can see one of these at he end of the fold just before it comes out. Kind of hard to explain....try this and see if will work for for you.

    I have had it with Hewes reels when I have had problems loading the 120 film.

    Is that a 5 string Violin???

    I agree, you kinked the film when loading for development.

    Th everybody, I am pretty sure It happened while loading the film on the dev reel. I dropped the reel while loading the film on.

    You also can get these by putting a roll of 120 film in your pocket with your keys for a couple of hours.

    Pay attention to the wording folks. If you can't load reels safely without problematic mechanical intervention, then you need to look to basic technique and practice. At least then you have a choice of tools.

    True.

    Except if you live in an area that gets very humid in the summer (like Minnesota), it can be really tough to get plastic dev reels dry enough for safe loading. Especially if using a changing bag where hands get sweaty, etc. Wanted to bring that angle of it up too, since it pertains to the subject matter.

    I am able to replace reels. I am not able to replace hands.
