If you really want to stick with 220, this combination may be worth trying. Best of luck.
    I've thought about trying those reels and tanks, but as I recall, they take a large amount of liquid to fill them for use in inversion agitation (I don't have a Jobo processor).

    Tom, I don't want to hijack the OP's thread, so we can move this to PMs or email, if you want... but I have the same tank & reels that I think you do. I have been loading them with 220 by using a corner clip to make rounded corners on the leading edge of the film and "walking" it onto the reels. I have no instruction manual or any other information and that just looked like the right thing to do. But it occurred to me as I read this thread that perhaps I am doing it wrong... Are you loading them that way or are you loading them like an SS reel by spiraling the film out from the center?

    Perhaps I have been making this too hard. I use to do 220 on SS reels but that was years ago and I have none now. Thanks.

    Humm. I've never had any trouble loading 220 film onto SS reels except for one time when I was in a rush and got a kiss. Just take you time and gently roll the film on to the reel. It's like 35mm to me.
