    Here's another stick user.
    I use inversion on my slightly leaking paterson tank only during the "Ilford" wash sequence. Development and the rest are done with stick rotation. Personally I keep the same scheme as recommended by film makers, i.e. 10 secs every minute with tapping after each cycle, and my negatives look fine. I've tuned dev times with this method, so I don't know if there's any little difference with the inversion method. But surely it IS possible to get good negs for your workflow.

    I think Ilford recommends 10 seconds each minute. The Kodak tech sheets almost invariably recommend 5 seconds each 30 seconds. I've done it both ways. Does it make a lot of difference? Not really once you've got things dialed in to your preference. My own admittedly anecdotal observations show that the negatives print about the same.

    Of course, following the directions that came with the tank would be ideal,

    IF the directions came with the tank originally [not always the case]

    ELSE IF we got the directions when we were given [or bought used] the tank.

    But frankly, most of us never saw the instructions for any tank - plastic or steel.

    If you think a stick works, make an eventoned frame on one roll. If there are differences, that is where it will show with darker edges compared to the center.

    If it does not pass this test, agitate over a tray and pour the spillage back in.

    In my opinion, nothing is a good a vigorous inversion for roll film.

    Patter direction say to use the stick ONLY for the first agitation immediately after pouring in developer. After that , invert
