    At $45 a 100ft roll expired roll, you can get 18-20 rolls of 36exp out of it. 18rolls = $2.50 each, 20rolls = $2.25

    Freestyle has pre-rolled arista premium at $2.89 a rolls of 36exp. $0.39 to $0.64 more expensive or 18 rolls for $52.02, 20 rolls at $57.80, a difference of $7.02 to $12.80.

    Shipping is $5.80 for ebay seller, and $7.99 for freestyle, a difference of $2.19.

    Pros of freestyle? fresh dated film with guarantee that it was stored correctly, saves you time from reloading, saves you buying re-loadable cassettes, and very low chances of getting your film scratched (if your reusing often and your felt has deteriorated). Plus you can usually get a 37th frame out, over 18-20 rolls and you got another free half a roll or so.

    "Tri-X" crudely written on a scrap of masking tape stuck on a bulk roll is way cooler than rolls of.....Arista? What the heck is Arista? ;-)

    Haha to each his own I guess. When it's in the camera no one sees it anyway. Arista premium is the last of tri-x, once freestyle finishes what they have Kodak won't supply it to them anymore. Ah also I forgot to mention dx-coded. I've rolled tons of film by hand and with bulk loaders, sometimes when the prices are this close it's just not worth the hassle, cleaning felt, taping, cranking, cutting leaders, and labeling.

    I almost clicked the button to buy 10 rolls yesterday when I saw this post, but then I remembered that my freezer was full and there were already several bricks of films sitting outside of the freezer waiting for space...
