    Thanks guys! The SS tank and plastic reels look like a good idea. Gonna check freestyle on that.

    Sorry if we may have confused you - as far as I know no-one makes a SS tank and plastic reel combination.

    Nope - the plastic reels are too big in diameter to fit in any SS tanks (that I am aware of).

    In addition, as far as I am aware, the only SS reels that work in plastic tanks are Hewes reels that are specially designed for JOBO tanks.

    None of my SS tanks leak and only a few of my plastic tanks lieak! I generally have no problem.

    However, as said above, there are gloves and I keep a box of them in the DR.

    You can get a 100-pack of disposable Nitrile gloves at stores like Harbor Freight or Central Tractor for about $10.00.
