    Interesting, my old clear reels work perfectly on the new(er) 1500 system tank. I don't rotate so I don't care anyway, but just sayin'.
    //edit: I just double-checked (Used my 1500 for the first time today): There are SOME old reels with a tight fit on the 1500 column and some which are loose as you explained...

    I have several of the older and newer reels. I find the old, clear ones vastly superior to the new opaque versions and almost exclusively use the old reels. The reason being the larger film guides of the older versions which make finding/feeling for the starting point so much easier in the dark and the film can't "jump" out of the larger guiding area - something which can happen (and has happened to me on occasion) very easily with the new reels, especially when using PET-based films which have a higher resistance.

    I have both styles but prefer using the newer ones, I also had the core of a Paterson 2 Reel tank reduced to allow the reels to fit, as if I am doing semi-stand processing I prefer using the Paterson Super System $ tank as it sits nicely in the hole in my TBE.

    Another aspect is the change of materials.
    With a report on static discharge between film and reel on a Paterson reel in mind this could be an issue with Jobo reels too, and than there might be a difference between old and new type reels.

    As far as the different materials, the Clear reels may be more subject to cracking, although the only clear jobo that I have broken is the top part of the dedicated reel in my "Jobo-Triumf 35-16" tank. (that particular tank can be adjusted to do 1 roll of 35 or one roll of 16mm/110 size film.) I do have a couple of the newer style where the center has broken off the tab that locks the two halves together.

    One Very Important mechnical difference is that the older style reels can be set for 127 Size films, but the newer ones are only good for 120 or 35mm
