    Jobo back in US

    Got an email from Freestyle and they said "Jobo processors are returning to the United States market and Freestyle is the exclusive distribution partner! Jobo accessories will now be more readily available such as all primary Jobo processing."

    Good news?

    I guess so. I am looking for stainless steel reels (both 135 and 120) for my newly acquired jobo CPE2. They are very hard to find.

    Sorry for not posting the whole part if the email regarding Jobo products. But here it is.
    "As for new products, Jobo processors are returning to the United States market and Freestyle is the exclusive distribution partner! Jobo accessories will now be more readily available such as all primary Jobo processing reels, tanks, bottles and most replacement parts except for the circuit boards for older processors. The new processor is called the CPP-3, an updated version of the Jobo CPP-2, with a better circuit board and improved performance features. The CPP-3 will accept all original Jobo accessories. Please contact me if you have an interest in this new processor, as it will help us determine our initial order. It should be available to ship to customers in the United States early 2013."

    The new processor is a lovely bit of equipment but the price........... Over £2000 in UK. I think I will stay with my CPE2. It may be old and battered but it works.

    Why not use the (easily found) plastic ones?

    I use them for everything from 35mm up to 4x5" and think they're fine.

    I guess this is good news but when someone says "exclusive dealer" it just means "no one can sell these but us so you suckers pay what we want you to pay". I have always wanted a JOBO but prices on the tank I need never really dropped in price enough to warrant a purchase. Now that new machines are available the prices will creep back up I suppose.

    Maybe this will drive the price down a bit on used expert drums. I got my unused 3010 back in the Spring for $380, passed up the chance to buy another one for $300 and now they seem to be going for stupid prices again.

    I get it dried out fast enough for back to back runs, but a second one for backup and heavy capacity sake would be nice.

    I am still seriously considering a CPP3 for next year, I can sell my CPP2 and write the new purchase off.
