Not too long ago, Arista Edu Ultra 120 film gave up the must-be-licked roll sealing paper strip for a modern self adhesive strip. For me, the problem is that the new strips get caught at the bottom of the pressure plate in my tlr Rollei, such that the adhesive strip is stripped off of the paper backing, and left clinging to the bottom of my pressure plate, gumming it up, and stressing my gears.
I love this film except for the new tape. I am wondering if this is working well for you and your camera, or if you are experiencing a similar problem? Also, perhaps there is a workaround?
I contacted Freestyle, but they said they had yet to hear of the problem.
