    no. its simply a case of buy it knowing your not getting the full lenghts worth and consider it lucky we have the materials at all. I should mention that the problem is worse with kodaks papers than fuji's. Do you think I should complain to Kodak USA about this issue?

    Hi Stephen. Could you describe the surface defect? I use quite a bit of roll paper here in the northeast U.S. and I've never witnessed any surface issues in either F or N. Are you in a particularly humid area? Are you in the habit of refrigerating your stock?

    Steve;

    Complain to Kodak USA, by all means.

    This could be a shipping problem related to long rolls and the center parts getting more abrasion. Abrasion is adjusted by ingredients in the top coat. If the top coat is left off, the top layer can be completely fogged due to abrasion.

    So, I suspect that they can do something about it.
