    I guess I am the single voice against strips.

    I would never consider printing without glass carrier , dead nut in the center of the bulb, lens blades axis.
    I have even found problems with one glass on top only.

    There are glass holders that can accomodate strips, and if you have big sheet's of glass then you do not need to cut.
    I do not even see how one would print large prints without glass, without neg popping .

    just me I guess.

    In liking glass carriers?
    No.

    But - as you say - there are glass carriers that can accommodate strips, and i don't think such thingies are rare.
    I never needed to cut strips down to single frames to be able to use a glass carrier. Strips are easier to handle, So strips for me (4 strips of 3 for 6x6 for me).

    At the risk of heresy...

    The decision between strips and single negs may also be influenced by whether you scan negatives as well as printing them.

    The film holder in my medium format scanner won't let me scan the middle negative in a strip of 3 6x7 negatives.

    And does that mean you are single?

    I never cut my sheet film negatives apart. Do you?

    You need a different scanner then.

    After having a roll developed in which the negatives were cut individually, on the next roll I asked for no cutting. The entire strip was placed in a sleeve and then wound into a tight circle; thus, the sleeve kinked in many places and imparted kinks to the negative strip. The negatives are not badly damaged but I don't want this to happen again. Henceforth I will specify 4 strips of 3 negatives. I won't set up my enlarger (C700) until I have accumulated a reasonable number of good negatives; for sure I will have plenty of poor ones to practice with when the time comes. Anyway, thanks to everyone who offered comments.

    Negative Strips

    If you are into making contact proof sheets in the darkroom, It is much easier to handle negative strips rather than individual negative images under the proof negative holder.
