    I understand what you mean. Some films are worse than others, and some just roll onto the reel almost by themselves.

    Thanks, guys!

    Glad it turned out well, I was quite curious.

    Well, if it works for you, ok; but have been loading 120 and 220 film myself since the 1950s with no apparent "curl" problem. With plastic, the reels must be kept scrupulously clean--I use a bristle kitchen pot brush on a handle to scrub my plastic reels after use. I use Bon Ami Cleanser or Bar Keeper's Friend.
    One thing, else. If you do a small clip off the corners of the film end which goes into the reel, it might keep you from having to reverse wind the film and carry it around.
